Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

Pure Storage is used at two of our data centers. It is the primary storage at both data centers and is used by all business groups. Pure Storage was implemented to replace aging legacy SANs that were getting to costly to maintain and had significant performance issues.
  • Latency is below 1ms 100% of the time
  • Storage web interface is intuitive and easy to use
  • vCenter plugin works great
  • While I can see LUNs easily within the interface, I'd love to see what data is consuming the most space
  • The web interface can be a bit too simplistic
  • I'd love to know when new controller firmware is released. At the moment, I am relying on my Pure Sales Engineer to tell me.
  • We now spend less time managing storage.
  • Upgrades are hassle-free. Pure support handles the upgrades and lets us know when they are complete.
  • We now have better reporting and metrics for our storage infrastructure.
Support is always very responsive and having access to my support cases on my mobile phone is great.
Pure wins easily with ease of use and predictable pricing against all competitors we reviewed.
  • Global datastores with vSphere between our primary and secondary data centers.
  • API access with our existing monitoring solutions.
  • Using Pure Storage CLI with PowerShell scripts
Pure Storage was an excellent replacement to our legacy array. We run typical workloads mixed with web servers, database servers, and traditional application servers. In every scenario it has performed well.
