Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

  • Ease of deployment.
  • Robustness at its core.
  • Helpful documentation.
  • Clear path to get compatibility matrices, it was hard to get it while doing it for Dell and VMware products.
  • More options regarding SMB, sometimes a few clients don't have a very big budget to implement a simple iSCSI SAN.
  • Spanish speaking techs, they need to improve that.

  • A recent upgrade was completely online and was seamless.
  • We are completely happy with our array.

  • Pure1 portal where you can see all your Pure Storage usage and other features is very impressive.
  • Pure Storage integration with VMware SRM makes it very easy to configure array-based replication.
  • Pure Storage Support is very good and the resolution time to fix a problem is impressive.
  • Pure GUI is very user-friendly and makes it very easy for new users to learn how to create LUNs and others in no time.
  • Introduce a new support tab in Pure Storage GUI for any individual storage would be great.
  • They offer few trainings for Customers who have invested in Pure Storage for free.
  • Suggest to Customers how they can improve Pure Storage functionality from time to time.

  • Speed - our VM's boot up in less then 10 seconds compared to about 90 seconds on the previous spinning disk arrays
  • Support - we have had great response / automated ticket creation for issues the may pop up
  • Up time - we have done numerous software upgrades and even hardware updates with ZERO down time in our virtual environments. We never could of done this with our previous Dell SANs
  • None that I can think of

  • Mobile app. Allows quick view of the health of all of your arrays from your mobile device. You can also open a ticket from the app.
  • Unbelievable IOPS with the flash storage.
  • Extremely easy to install and configure. I installed it into the rack before the Pure engineer got onsite.
  • It could be less expensive. Pure storage is not cheap. But, outside of price I cannot thing of a thing it is lacking.

  • Performance: heads and tails above and beyond what a traditional array ever brought to the table.
  • Manageability: 8 hour, overnight upgrades are a thing of the past. Open a case with Pure's Support Team, give them an operating window for the upgrade and then they do the upgrades remotely, generally within an hour.
  • Deduplication: because of the 4:1 deduplication ratios that we are seeing in our environments, we reduced from a full rack of EMC VNX hardware, to 5RU of Rackspace in one of our data centers, while the rest of our arrays are sitting in a single 3RU chassis, providing all the storage we need for 100s of Windows Server and Desktop VMs.
  • I really cannot think of anything that Pure needs to do differently. They are constantly innovating their Pure1 SaaS interface with more benefits and providing on-array software updates that provide value to our IT Team.

  • Simple management
  • Dedupe and compression
  • Snapshot replication
  • Display of different data reduction rates can be confusing and could be noted better in the interface
  • Pure doesn't have an easy way to note who at the customer is responsible for management/maintenance of different units under the same overall account

  • A single pane of glass management that is incredibly simple to use.
  • Incredibly fast initial and subsequent deployments.
  • The deduplication/compression and speed exceed our expectations.
  • I can't think of a single thing, to be honest.

  • Customer service is fantastic. We have not had any issues with the array, but even doing a code upgrade is simple as support is very friendly and quick to respond.
  • The array is FAST! Being an all-flash array that is expected, but bundle that with their architecture and this thing is lightning quick in all storage operations.
  • We have not yet had the opportunity to take advantage of the Evergreen Model, but are looking forward to a hardware upgrade. This model is great and allows for quick and easy uplift to the newest hardware without replacing the array.
  • The array is so simple and easy to use that, we rarely need to manage it or do anything really. It really feels like a set and forget kind of system because it just works.

  • Technical support from Pure has been great. They are very proactive and responsive when necessary.
  • Pure Storage FlashArray is very easy to install, configure and administer.
  • We have been very satisfied with the performance of FlashArray - under 1 millisecond latency.
  • Pure Storage FlashArray is not cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for.
  • We have seen a few too many necessary firmware updates to fix software bugs in 2019.
  • There is a bit of "sticker shock" to see how much usable disk you end up with from the raw TB total.

  • Pure's dedupe algorithm allows us to save storage space considering we have several stacks running the same software.
  • The evergreen program allows us to upgrade the controllers on our arrays every 3 years so we are always current.
  • Support is amazing, they will work at fixing a problem even if it isn't on their end.
  • There is nothing that I can think of that they could do better.
  • I would like better notifications of new features.

  • Dedupe on file storage is great.
  • Active cluster allows for synchronous writes to multiple data centers for an active/active setup.
  • Management of volumes and hosts is very simple from the web UI.
  • 24/7 support is phenomenal.
  • Direct visibility of protection groups from the VMWare console would be helpful for restoring data.
  • Would like to be able to manage all FlashArrays from a single web UI.
