Provided they understand universal storage concepts, an admin can be trained in 2-4 hours to manage the system. We utilized pro-services to install the unit and they were in and out in half of a day.,The best advice I can provide is to purchase a unit-- it will be the best decision made all year. They have a feature called Evergreen storage, and the best part is that we no longer have to figure out what we are going to do with the old array, they simply exchange the old with a new performing system.,10,,We are starting to use the product in our SEIM environment, and due to the column of events we are completely satisfied Huge savings on employee time, less waiting for systems a Happy employee is more productive.

It is used by a specific financial department to address performance issues in the virtualization space. We have over two thousand users who use the system on a regular basis. We need secure systems that enable encryption at the drive level with high performance and redundancy that enable high availability.
  • This is a great product that addresses our security concerns
  • We are very pleased with the performance of the system
  • the system is highly available and we have no issues with it
  • We have found no issues with it, we just wish other vendors had products of equal quality.
The product is well suited for Data centers with space issues -- a high density of racks and lack of space to install equipment. The size of the Pure Storage Flashblade units, combined with the de-duplication features, helps to effectively use rack space while having great performance. While the product is somewhat expensive, if it is needed, it has great value.
