Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

We purchased Pure Storage FlashArray's to replace aging Dell Equallogic SANs that were going end of support. We had had the Dell SANs for over 10 years and our replacement cycle for our Storage is a long term investment. We were looking to go all flash to get ahead of the technlogy and in the end did not even consider a hybrid solution due to the performance increases we obtained when doing a proof of concept with Pure. We deploy Pure FlashArrays and FlashBlades in all of our datacenters located across the city.
  • Speed - our VM's boot up in less then 10 seconds compared to about 90 seconds on the previous spinning disk arrays
  • Support - we have had great response / automated ticket creation for issues the may pop up
  • Up time - we have done numerous software upgrades and even hardware updates with ZERO down time in our virtual environments. We never could of done this with our previous Dell SANs
  • None that I can think of
  • Initial procurement costs were high, but it was expected since we were replacing all of our storage arrays at all the datacenters. Pure was very aggressive in pricing to make sure we were able to replace our environment with enough space to grow
We tested against HPE Hybrid SANs, which were very nice as well. In the end, Pure Storage FlashArray was a better fit since we were going to be replicating to a DR location.
If you are looking for speed, reliability and 100% uptime, Pure is the way to go!
