Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

Working with the Pure support team is always a pleasure. No more 1, 2, 3 level support.

The support team is extremely fast if their is an issue.

Two Pure Storage FlashArray is used in two datacenters with an active cluster. It is used across the whole organization with high reliability.
  • The setup and migration was very simple.
  • The administration of this active cluster is easy. As a new customer it is clear and the Storage Array is working like promised.
  • The Pure support is excellent and really fast. To schedule firmware upgrades and execute these upgrades goes very smoothly and without problems during business hours.
  • It should be possible for adminstrators, to pause the alerting in the administration WebGui. For example for failover testing or network maintenance with impact of the Pure Storage active cluster.
  • In the future their is no more migration from one to an other storage system.
  • With the Evergreen Storage Gold program their will be no more downtime. Controller can be replaced during running cluster. An extansion with more flash arrays is just putting them in the Storage. No more action is neede.
Planning and doing firmware maintenance before was a pain. It took a lot of time for organisation and a down time, just because something could go wrong. With Pure it is very easy. Planning with the Pure support is simple and the maintenance can be done without down time. The support starts the maintenance on time. Working with the admin team is a pleasure for us. Pure takes care to upgrade the Pure Storage FlashArray periodically. So the customer profits from the innovations in a new firmware release.
Test it! You will be positive surprised. It is really fast and easy.

It is an easy and fast Storage system with an high automated active cluster system.

We like the Evergreen Gold program. No more migration in about 5 years and no more full containers with old storage shelfs.

No down time at all and an excellent support.

Other customers are more then satisfied with the Pure Storage FlashArray stacks.

  • We don't have any downtime because of storage maintenance.
  • The storage is just working. This was before not always the same and failure search was a pain.
  • The administators do have more time for other projects and systems.
The Pure Storage FlashArray with the active cluster, the Pure support and the easy maintenance is not just an empty promise from seller. It really works like promised.
