Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

We use Pure Storage FlashArray as our main storage array for our entire organization. We run all 75 or our virtual servers off of the Pure Array. So, this hosts our Student Information System, our financial data, and all the way down to file-shares.
  • We were able to transfer from a 200TB HP 3Par storage system down to a 25 TB Pure Array based off how Pure uses the space and their amount of de-duplication.
  • Pure is the absolute easiest tool that I have to manage as it is so simple. In 4 years of using the system we have never had any issues whatsoever other than receiving notifications that they were planning on doing updates to firmware for us and when did we want it scheduled.
  • The cost of the system and renewal of maintenance is extremely cheap and easy as well.
  • I really have no issues that I can think of at this time.
  • Very low cost compared to our previous storage system. Yearly maintenance is unbelievably low cost.
  • Super easy to manage compared to our previous storage systems.
I have used HP EVA and HP 3Par as storage systems in the past. I have also evaluated Pivot3, Dell EMC, and Dell Compellent. We selected Pure Storage based off of three things: initial cost to purchase, renewal cost, and ease of use/maintenance work on our end. No one came close to touching Pure in any of those categories, much less all 3.
When needing fast and easy to manage storage, Pure Storage FlashArray is what you want. Would be great for video storage, redundant backup or main storage.
