Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

From our local support team to the remote support team, they are also responsive to any questions that might arise.
We utilize the Pure Storage FlashArray for a department. The department had a need for an all flash array that provided flexibility with snapshot technology. The Pure array has exceeded the performance and snapshot requirements.
  • One of the strengths of the Pure Storage FlashArray is the snapshot technology. We were creating the snapshots on an HDS array which had a parent/child relationship between the source and target. This made expanding the size of the source LUN challenging.
  • The snapshot technology with Pure eliminates that relationship making expanding the size of the source LUN very simple.
  • The support of the Pure Storage FlashArray is outstanding. Pure has alerted us to issues with our fiber channels that would have gone unnoticed otherwise. They are hands-down the best vendor at proactively notifying us of potential issues.
  • The Pure Storage FlashArray meets "the keep it simple" philosophy. From installation to configuration the array has been easy to use and we couldn't be happier.
  • At this stage, I can't think of anything that could be improved upon.
  • Due to the snapshot capability of the arrays, we are now exceeding our turn-around time for refreshing application environments.
  • Due to the speed of the array, we are now exceeding our reporting deadlines.
The simplicity of use has freed up valuable technician time to concentrate on other tasks.
The ease of use and snapshot technologies were a big plus for the Pure Storage FlashArray.
  • We have been able to create additional snapshots due to the storage usage of snapshots which has enabled faster refreshes of the application environments.
If an organization needs an all-flash array, the Pure Storage FlashArray would be well suited.
