Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

Our organization needed a high-performance storage array to meet the growing IOPS demand and we looked at many options before selecting Pure Storage FlashArray. I was very impressed with the data management capabilities especially dedup, compression, and the written guarantee that came along with the product. The per gig price point compared to big-boys all flash arrays (read EMC,HP) was very aggressive and FlashArray is built future ready being NVMe-Ready. It's been a few years since I have deployed Flasharray and I've never had any issue. It's a solid performer.
  • Compression
  • Very easy-to-use management interface
  • High IOPS performance
  • Scalability. Would like the ability to add more capacity without swapping the SSDs.
  • More integration into cloud/virtualization solutions
  • It delivers the needed performance and has helped tremendously with no downtime or performance bottlenecks.
  • We have been managing storage infrastructure with minimal training and that has helped the company save on human resource expenditures.
  • The 3-year controller upgrade promise has helped extend the refresh cycle saving hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Pure Storage FlashArray beats all the mentioned storage products in terms of performance, price, and support.
Veeam Backup & Replication, VMware ESXi, MySQL
If you are looking for an enterprise-grade storage solution for mixed/high workloads, Pure Storage FlashArray is a fantastic option. It has a very easy to use interface and advance features like replication, snapshots etc. are very easy to configure. The reporting section looks and works well.
