Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

We have replaced an existing Storage used for our VM environment with the Pure Storage. It was easy to replace, easy to install to configure and it is running without any hassle since then.
We could see a huge increase in speed. Also how the data was handled has changed drastically. much better compression and deduplication than with our old storage.
Configuration in the UI is very easy and after it is in place, you almosts have not to touch it anymore.
  • Easy to install.
  • Easy to configure.
  • You don't have to touch it anymore - it's there and it's doing the job.
  • The support team does a great job in case you need them.
  • Cannot say anything negative.
  • It's scalable and worth the money.
At the time we have bought Pure FlashArray, we could not find any real alternative!
We have looked at some, but no real competitor was identified.
It's a storage for a virtual environment, hosting disk for the VMs, etc.. We use it for our VM Ware products like virtual desktop environment.
We also use it for our virtual server for the VMDKs. For better resilience, we have two clusters in different locations. It's clearly not useable as an archive or file storage solution.
