Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

On Cloud, a Mexican based cloud service provider, Pure Storage, is one of our secrets to improve our SLA and user performance. The heterogeneous environment that we have is well supported by FlashArray, helping us to deliver any kind of application.
  • Almost zero administration
  • SLA
  • The support
  • Native NAS
  • Better price
  • MSP or service provider program
  • The price per GB for an emerging market is too high.
  • The Support Team is great and being better.
The small factor and easy implementation were the main factors to buy.
The heterogeneous environment that we have is the best example of the adaptability of the FlashArray because we have many types of apps.
  1. Easy to use
  2. Easy to implement
  3. Great support
  1. The users notice that the environment was faster than ever.
Pure runs perfectly over VMware and hyper-v environments.
