Well definitely the ease of use has been the top of the cart thing here. Our clients and ourselves have been very happy with this decision. Pure seems to really have thought on the UI part of the things. Myself being one of their true supporters, I really can't make enough compliments to them, but the speed at first was not very good and we had to call Pure and in less than 30 minutes we saw [substantial] improvements on the vCenter cluster.

There are several benefits that our organization has seen post implementing the Pure Storage FlashArray solution. The SQL licensing saving is one of the major benefits that we have seen. The time that it was taking to load the application has drastically improved because of the all-flash array running behind the VM's.

Pure Storage FlashArray GUI is very user friendly which helped us transition from old storage to Pure without any challenge. It helped us achieve high IOPS as per customer requirements with accepted latency. Pure Storage integration with VMware also helped us configure SRM and protect VMs on DR site.

Moving to an all-flash array has meant that ALL of our systems performance has increased, plus the system is VERY easy to use and manage and having Pure do all support remotely is an added bonus that ensures the systems is running optimally at all times.

Aside from the raw performance, the biggest benefits have been Pure Storage FlashArray's reliability, and ease of use. I go months in between logging into the interface to check on the device. We did an online controller upgrade to switch platforms all completely seamless with no downtime. The array has been running for 3 years without a single issue.

It's hard to really explain simplicity of use other than it just works. We are not having to waste time fiddling around with settings and dealing with performance issues.
Upgrades are beyond easy. Pure Storage does all the testing prep work and upgrade. Our upgrade went as follows: Beginning of the day - Pure Storage is upgrading the array today during a busy production day. End of the day - Pure Storage is done. Zero downtime or performance issues.

Snapping our environment for development and testing has changed everything. Within seconds we can snap and present a full copy of the environment. Development and testing have increased 10 fold.

Our biggest benefit, coming from a mix of flash and hybrid arrays has been that of performance. However, we have also been able to impress our sustainability groups with the amount of power we have saved and cost savings we have made.

Cost saving is particularly important to us as we are a charity organisation and every penny we can save means another penny going towards life-saving cancer research.

We were using mechanical disk storage in a tier 3 environment, but data growth led to a gradual drop in performance. Pure Storage FlashArray's solution of NVMe flash module storage was a big step towards improving our applications and supporting the environment in the short and medium term. It was certainly a good solution for our facilities. The simplicity of use and performance demonstrated so far has been very satisfactory.

The array is super simple to use. We rarely need to login to manage the array. The speed is also absolutely incredible! This is a very fast array and we don't even have the NVMe model yet. And, we will not be required to do an array upgrade ever again with the Evergreen model, which is nice.

We have benefited from many aspects of Pure Storage. Performance is our number one benefit. Our one array will support up to 100k IOPS and I think more when we upgrade. The performance combined with the ease of use has made the overall administration costs of supporting enterprise storage very low; freeing us up to do other things than troubleshoot storage issues.

The simplicity of administration, installation, upgrades...this has been a life-changer for my team. The proactive support calls to say they want to replace a drive, as it shows that it might fail in the near future. My management loves this support model.

The Pure Storage FlashArray has been rock-solid. The management/monitoring interface is very straight-forward. The performance is a night and day improvement from our old storage, and the best part of all of this is that with the support cost guarantee, I know that we will be saving money over other solutions in a very short period of time.

Much simpler to configure and manage than traditional storage arrays. Because of this, it requires much less training and much less daily care than traditional arrays. In addition, we've gotten better visibility into our workload. Built-in snapshot replication has also improved how we handle some of our backup and off-site DR requirements.

We run a sizable load on it and have seen no performance issues and no uptime issues. This array has been a godsend and checks all the boxes for speed and data reduction, and it is beyond simple to set up. The tech that came onsite was here less than 2 hours to get it online.
