Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

We use the Pure Storage SAN as our primary storage for our entire infrastructure across the whole organisation.
  • Easy to configure
  • Very fast
  • Easy to intergrate
  • Great Technical support
  • Clearer pricing
  • Positive improvement in speed and deployment of VMs
  • Good ROI if priced over 5 years +
I didn't believe the original claims on dedupe and compression. All proved to be better than expected during proof of concept.
Storage is easier to increase; it's easier to deploy new servers, backups run quicker and VMs deploy quicker.
Dedupe, compression, speed and evergreen refresh
Positive impact makes deploying things for users quicker and jobs run quicker.
Cheaper ROI and faster performance
Suited for any application \ deployment that requires high speed storage
