Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

We are using Pure Storage FlashArray on our production system to replace a legacy storage system that is obsolete and costly to maintain. We managed to decrease operation expenditure by 20 percent and double our capacity with less server footprint in terms of rack space and power consumption.
  • Compression, and de-duplication. It is doing this really well. We have an average of a one fourth compression ratio of our file storage system. Not to mention inline de-duplication.
  • Longevity. We can upgrade the management blade should we have additional processing and capacity and support has been awesome.
  • It has usage analytics and a great partner ecosystem.
  • User events and I hope that you can manage your partner to keep giving us on the latest storage services support.
  • Lower maintenance cost, power, and rack space.
  • Higher storage density per rack unit.
  • Higher storage capacity per rack unit.
Not really comparable but the footprint is much lower and storage density is much higher per rack unit.
Hot and warm database and datasets.

ROI is just much better due to the lower price point and its total solution design for the storage.
Won't change the evaluation, it is good enough as it is.
