It's not appropriate for storage workloads that need replication to another site, for instance, disaster recovery.
It's also not appropriate for storage processes that rely on cloning and snapshot capability, for instance, database server volume cloning for refreshing data between application environments.

EDA scratch workloads. Less appropriate for our software side of the house where SMB is required and mix mode authentication between NFS and SMB is not mature.

It's well suited for high-performance storage requirements used to support NFS. Windows SMB share is less flexible than other NAS storage.

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.

The product really ROCKS. We handle all of our FTP front end traffic via the FBA and we never have any bandwidth issues. It handles very high IOPS in a short period of time. I wish we could also use it as a traditional array. As of now we are ONLY using the NFS mounts. If we could use it as a flash array also, it would improve productivity.

First and foremost, it's a NFS and/or bucket storage, implementing S3 for the latter. It does those well. If you want CIFS, don't expect to run many shares on it. It works. It is supported. But not the primary use case.
