We deployed one array to a client's DRP which went pretty well. Currently it handles the DRP data and a few offsite production workloads which needed to be handled since this client is a wholefood distributor and didn't have enough infra to handle its load on the DRP and the offsite needs.

Pure Storage FlashArray is being used in UAT and Production environment. Pure Storage FlashArray is used within the cloud operation department to support the production application. The decision to move from a non-Flash array to Flash array has predominantly resolved several performance-related and latency-related issues within the application and improved the business goals.

We use the Pure Storage FlashArray as our main storage system for all of our Hyper-V Virtual Machines (around 150 on 4 different hosts) and we use it across the county in multiple locations.

Our Pure Storage array is used as our primary SAN for our virtualized environment. As the primary SAN, it serves all end-user and IT workloads. When designing the system we sought a solution that would provide plenty of performance and robust uptime. The Pure Storage array fits that description perfectly.

On Cloud, a Mexican based cloud service provider, Pure Storage, is one of our secrets to improve our SLA and user performance. The heterogeneous environment that we have is well supported by FlashArray, helping us to deliver any kind of application.

We purchased Pure Storage FlashArray's to replace aging Dell Equallogic SANs that were going end of support. We had had the Dell SANs for over 10 years and our replacement cycle for our Storage is a long term investment. We were looking to go all flash to get ahead of the technlogy and in the end did not even consider a hybrid solution due to the performance increases we obtained when doing a proof of concept with Pure. We deploy Pure FlashArrays and FlashBlades in all of our datacenters located across the city.

We use Pure Storage FlashArray across the whole organization. It is our primary enterprise storage for general purposes from database to virtualization data. So far we have had an excellent return of investment with high performance and low latency. Pre-sales and after-sales support have been very positive.

We use Pure as our primary storage array. This has been an outstanding investment and the performance has been a huge improvement. The box has done everything we asked it to do! We are nearly out of storage capacity on our EMC and when we saw Pure as an option we jumped at the opportunity.

We use Pure Storage FlashArray with integration in OpenStack with our private cloud. We also have the boxes connected directly to the physical servers, and in turn, by VMware and Xen. We have no commercial problems.

Pure Storage is used in all of our data centers across the Pacific Northwest, including in our Candian operations as well. Since moving from traditional RAID, disk-based arrays (EMC, HP/LeftHand) we have left behind the 'old ways' of storage implementations. Implementation, provisioning, and management of storage with Array has been greatly simplified. We have undergone multiple Array upgrades from one model to the next, non-disruptively, 100% as advertised. We have even seen the new controllers upon renewal of support at the end of year 3, as well. Support costs remained relatively stable and predictable based on capacity and since moving to Pure we have not had to migrate all our data to a new SAN because it was cheaper to buy a new array than to continue support on the existing. All of these benefits have revolutionized our data center management strategy, all the while giving us amazing performance for our virtual workloads.

We originally started using Pure Storage FlashArray for our VDI workload. We have subsequently expanded usage to include general virtualization workloads. This has been a perfect storage platform for fast disk with data that can be deduplicated and compressed. In our VDI environment, we are seeing better than 7:1 data reduction, and for our other use cases we are seeing 5:1 or better.

Pure Storage is used to provide storage as a service (STaaS) to our cloud and managed services customers. Pure is also leveraged in infrastructure as a service (IaaS) for our virtualized environments to provide customers with dedicated compute and storage. In today's world where rapid response is required, ease of management, availability, low latency, and high throughput are key metrics for a business. Pure Storage enables us to meet these tight SLAs.

It's used across the entire organization to house virtual machines and containers with varied workloads and purposes. It speeds our virtualization, containerization, and database systems with its incredibly fast and highly reliable storage.

We are using Pure Storage FlashArray for the entire organization to replicate to identical array in our co-lo site. This array is blazing fast and it solved I/O and latency issues we had with our databases. Our VMs are lightning quick on the array making any storage migrations a breeze. Management of the array is also very simple and easy to use. Overall this is a great product!

We use Pure Storage FlashArray as our Tier 1 storage platform across our entire organization. We have been using it since 2015 and it has worked out great so far. We don't have to deal with disk slowness complaints from our DBA's anymore.

We have 3 Pure arrays that are used across the whole organization. We run a VDI environment on it and lots of SQL that benefits from the all flash array. We have an array for development, production, and DR. Using the arrays in these 3 environments ensures that we do not have to sacrifice performance.

Pure Storage is used by the entire organization to host Microsoft SQL Server 2019 database as well as hosting multiple VM's. Pure Storage is extremely efficient for fast database OTLP & OLAP processing. Data duplication allows us to host many copies of the database and duplicate VM's for production, testing and development. Pure Storage has completely changed and improved our entire development. Things that used to take hours and days have turned into seconds and minutes.

Pure Storage is our Tier 1 storage platform for all servers and services hosted in our datacenter. That's dozens of applications, big and small, in a diverse technical environment with lots of different workloads. The workloads on Pure Storage arrays are 99% virtualized. While it was originally brought in to host our largest workloads that require the highest performing IO, it quickly became the standard for storage performance. Any system engineer will tell you that storage performance issues are a pain, and with shared storage, are not easy to manage. Pure Storage has made storage performance issues a thing of the past and high performing storage is the new normal.

We are a Cloud Service Provider and we have Pure Storage for our virtual machines. Pure works very fast and improve the storage volumes with its greate compression and deduplication.
Pure works very well with VMware Hypervisor.
