Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashArray

Pure Storage FlashArray is being used in UAT and Production environment. Pure Storage FlashArray is used within the cloud operation department to support the production application. The decision to move from a non-Flash array to Flash array has predominantly resolved several performance-related and latency-related issues within the application and improved the business goals.
  • Solid performance
  • Easy to configure
  • Knowledgeable customer support
  • 9999 uptime
  • Hassle free firmware upgrades
  • Every month or frequently there is a firmware upgrade. I believe this should be released every quarter.
  • Very expensive to expand the disk capacity.
  • Positive impact is the cost savings on the SQL licensing due to the performance gain
  • Negative impact is the array itself is very expensive
It was a very tight call before finalizing the solution. Since Pure Storage FlashArray was able to offer the best deal and the kind of relationship the pure engineer maintained with us during the entire POC journey made them unique compared with the other vendors and I strongly believe that is a winning situation for Pure Storage FlashArray.

Pure Storage FlashArray is always a leader in the market when it comes to the performance , seamless upgrades, the latency, and a simple and well designed GUI through which anyone with the basic knowledge can create and present the lun to hypervisor. It also helps in saving lot of $$ on SQL servers due to the fact that since Pure Storage FlashArray offers a very solid performance and latency, the vCPU can be cut down to 25% and thus by reducing the license cost. This is one of the major benefits that we have seen post implementing Pure Storage FlashArray in our environment.
