In few months it will also serve as storage of HIS main database (Intesystems Cache). This solution gives us a full solution for our structured data needs:
  • - High-speed storage
  • - High availability
  • - Compression and deduplication
  • - Easy administration
  • Performance
  • Easy administration
  • Compression and deduplication
  • Vvol (VMware) support in mirrored (pods) volumes.
  • Add additional options to snapshots (maybe a webhook on finish).
  • Consolidate structured data storage in a single, fast, reliable and easy to manage product.
Pure Storage FlashArray is well suited for any application with high performance requirements: virtualization, vdis (vdi boot storms and deduplication), databases (latency and iops) and building CI chains with its easy api for taking snapshots and creating clones
