It's an expensive product, but it's worth the investment. It is recommended for scenarios of medium and large robust companies that have critical data on the network. If it's a smaller scenario I would recommend other cheaper storage solutions with better cost-benefit. If access is critical and interruptible and that requires a centralized backup, fast and with full data protection, this is the ideal solution in my opinion. I really enjoy using it and feel comfortable with its high performance and information protection.

If data storage, access, and security [are] of the highest priority to your business then Pure Storage FlashBlade is an excellent tool that must be considered. Analytics or sharing that requires the fastest speeds available will benefit from the NVMe solid-state drives they use which are far superior [to] spinning rust. It is less ideal for those who do not require such time-critical work.

From small to large sized industries, everyone can benefit from it because it has some extraordinary [features] from a regular data management software. We can store and manage our data files as well as get many other benefits [all with] genuinely good pricing. But it is least favorable in scenarios where we needed a detailed report and performance analytics.

This tool is good for all sorts of organization as it is highly concerned with the data management and has all the amazing features from data storage to sharing and from sharing to backup. Everything is available in this software. One can store even bulk of data with this software. It is not suitable if someone wants to have same functions with less pricing.

Pure Storage FlashBlade has facilitated cloud storage in a very credible manner, with classical and well organized mechanisms, which increases the access controls from users. More so, Pure Storage FlashBlade has employed modernized back up plans, which unless one mess up with them, they easily help in data retrieval. Lastly, Pure Storage FlashBlade is suitable in data migration, and transfers or sharing.

Pure [Storage FlashBlade] is ahead of the pack in Storage industry, the best option for enterprise environments. If the storage is used to internal storage for all virtual environments, SQL database, Oracle and private cloud, this is the definitive solution. This solution is not recommended when used solely for data copies, backups, or background applications. Its high performance, scalability and efficiency are to be used for high efficiency first grade applications.

Pure Storage FlashBlade is best suited for time-sensitive local or cloud operations where performance block storage is critical. With either a very large file size or a very large number of files, [Pure Storage] FlashBlade can effectively decrease file read and write times. For applications that do not require centralized file services, [Pure Storage] FlashBlade may not be necessary

Pure Storage FlashBlade is well suited for modern architectures, where computing and storage are disaggregated, especially large organizations which needs massive computer power to run all their company software and hardware operations and it is less suited in small organizations using traditional methods to process their operations and with fewer employees whose data and information cannot be handled manually

[Pure Storage FlashBlade] works well for those who are looking for flexible storage solution for their much needed high speed data. Programmable processors of Pure Storage FlashBlade makes it even more flexible to adapt to ones environment. Snapshots provide a great feature for replication and recovery. Pure Storage FlashBlade may not be affordable for small and low budget companies which are looking for high speed storage solutions.

Pure Storage FlashBlade is best suited for teams trained in storage delivery and analysis. It helps them get their backups done quicker and helps with their performance analytics as well.

But with teams with less experience in storage analytics, Pure Storage FlashBlade can be a pain while adapting and during the initial configuration. It is easily onboarded but training people to use it optimally can be an issue.

Pure Storage Flash Blade is a great all purpose storage usage solution for our company data center and over time a big win over Amazon Web Service S3 in terms of both price as well as performance. Because of price many companies that are looking to have an on premises data lake will need to look at other HDD based systems for a tier 2 data lake that does not require the performance of Pure.

Also, we are currently using Pure Storage FlashBlade to provide high-speed storage for our container environments.
I'd like to expand its use more widely, but with no option to tier out to less performance storage for cold data, we have not been able to expand the footprint of it.
