We run all of our applications and databases on Pure storage. With 4 arrays in production, we are able to provide extremely fast response times to every need. For day to day management, we only have a single user (me) that manages the arrays.
The whole organization uses the Pure Storage FlashArray as it is our primary storage array for all business functions. All of our virtual environment runs on the Pure Storage FlashArray. These business functions include application analysts, DBAs, networking, client engineering, and infrastructure team members. These people support the whole IT organization, and the whole system. The four people who have direct usage of the Pure Storage FlashArray are administrators on the Infrastructure Services team.
Mainly retail clients and VMware virtual machines to deliver cloud services. We use the array to present storage for vSphere environment and to be able to take snapshots for backups every 2 hours. The latency is great because we run around 7000 backups jobs per day.
Direct users of the flash array are IT storage, virtualization, and monitoring teams to different extents. The arrays support around 3000 Citrix Apps and Desktop users as well as significant revenue-generating systems.
All of our virtual machines are on this array so each user uses it whether they know it or not. When systems work the way they are intended then users tend to ask fewer questions. We have had no major issues so users are able to do what they need to do.
We have a small infrastructure team that manages the FlashArray. Its ease of use, stability, and intuitive GUI makes management a snap with very little training required to get other team members up and running. With a small company, this simplicity allows for us to cross train outside of normal infrastructure job rolls and be confident that the GUI will not overwhelm the non traditional user.
