Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray
We are leveraging the FlashArray for our virtual environment, SQL data and WFS. We are also using the FlashArray as warm storage in our Splunk environment. This is accessed by the entire company and has primarily resolved latency issues.
- I'll put NDUs at the top of the Pros list. The ability to upgrade software or hardware with no disruption and completed by support for an entirely hands-off experience is simply beautiful. Just to clarify, I'm referring to in-place upgrades and not migrations that you'll receive from other vendors.
- FlashArray does data reduction extremely well. We receive approximately 4 to 1 on our virtual environment and just over 3 to 1 on our database environments.
- The FlashArray can be expensive if you're a small shop or have a ton of multimedia. It's excellent for virtualization extremely fast.
- Positive: The initial purchase left some wondering will it be worth it, but years down the road it was clearly the correct decision.
FlashArray works extremely well on virtual environments. Stay away from using it for your multimedia files since you wouldn't be fully utilizing the dedupe and compression functionalities.
