Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

Our FlashArray is being used as primary storage to support the virtualization of both servers and desktops across our local government. It supports dozens of servers with a wide range from Active Directory to databases to applications servers along with some active virtual desktops.
  • Incredibly low latency.
  • Great throughput, fast transfers.
  • Excellent transparent data deduplication.
  • Excellent support from pre-sales to setup to post sales followups.
  • If I had to pick, orange is an unflattering color on me.
  • This storage accelerated our database access speeds enough that end-users started thanking us.
The Pure Storage FlashArray has been rock-solid. The management/monitoring interface is very straight-forward. The performance is a night and day improvement from our old storage, and the best part of all of this is that with the support cost guarantee, I know that we will be saving money over other solutions in a very short period of time.
Pure Storage stands head and shoulders above their competition. Not only is performance and usable capacity better and faster respectively, but the predictable support costs also make this a "no-brainer." Having used other storage arrays, from setup to support, Pure is by far the easiest, fastest, and most reliable storage I have found. The team that sells and supports their products have been great, proactive, and best of all not pushy. I wish I had taken a closer look when they first came on the market.
In any environment that is large enough to need backend storage, this is a great long-term solution. Looking forward Pure's support offerings put them head and shoulders above their competition. This not only gives us a top of class storage solution but does so at a long-term support cost that is a fraction of other solutions.

Pure Storage FlashArray Support

We have not needed to contact support. However they are great about reaching out pro-actively and making sure that our needs continue to be met. Very few companies provide this level of post sales support.

Using Pure Storage FlashArray

The install went smoothly, and the engineer explained every step along the way. The next couple of days he checked in to make sure that migration was running as planned. The user interface is designed with usability in mind. You don't need a dedicated "Storage Silo" to manage this product. For smaller IT departments that need to support many different workloads, this could not be a better feature.
