Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

Never had one issue.
We use Pure Storage as our Tier one storage connected to VMware environment via Fiber Channel. It hosts an array of critical applications from databases, to web servers and security. It solves the issue of disk and application performance.
  • Pure storage is able to be up 99.99 percent of the time
  • Upgrades and support are proactive and do not require downtime
  • Disk latency, snapshotting with VMware is fantastic
  • Make it part of a Hyper-Converged computer environment
  • Add the option of tiering data to less expensive disks
  • It has had positive ROI due to lower cost of ownership, re[pairs and downtime of critical apps.
100% we have benefitted from easy installation and simple maintenance. As long as you stay on maintenance, Pure Storage is fantastic at being proactive about the unis and staying on top of it to keep downtime to a minimum. We have upgraded firmware several times with no downtime at all. We get notifications when things are misconfigured or hosts lose connections. Support is excellent.
Take it for a spin. Pull out controllers and drives. See how it does not come down like other arrays or create errors.
No comparison. Pure out performs in every way.
I find Pure excellent for critical apps, low latency needs and integration with VMWare. It out performs any other disk arrays I tested. We have found that is not cost effective for video storage. There is little to no compression or dedupulication in video.

Using Pure Storage FlashArray

  • Tier one storage for critical and high performing apps.

The benefits are outstanding as well as they support model.
