Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

We use the Pure Storage FlashArray as our main storage system for all of our Hyper-V Virtual Machines (around 150 on 4 different hosts) and we use it across the county in multiple locations.
  • All-flash array, super quick and responsive
  • Ease of setup and management
  • Incredible call-home support
  • Pricing
  • A more streamlined update process
  • We basically handed off support to Pure themselves so that already frees up a lot of our engineers' time.
  • The contract was based on the previous storage solution, so Pure had to throw in some extra storage for free which obviously adds value to the solution.
The price was a bit high compared to "spindle" arrays, but when you factor in the support and the expandability the solution made a lot of sense.
Moving to an all-flash array has meant that ALL of our systems performance has increased, plus the system is VERY easy to use and manage and having Pure do all support remotely is an added bonus that ensures the systems is running optimally at all times.
All flash array and 24-7 call-home support, really, I can't empathize how good this is because it practically means this system's support is basically handled by Pure themselves which know the system inside [and] out.
We needed to expand the array and with previous solutions that has been a whole project on its own with many people involved and took a few weeks. With Pure it was pretty much a call to Pure themselves and they got it up and running within days.
Pure Storage FlashArray came up as being the most cost-effective of the lot plus the extras added like call-home support were very welcome. The competitors' options were a lot more expensive and the call-home support added a lot more to the already high costs.
