Overall Satisfaction with Pure Storage FlashBlade

We introduced Pure Storage FlashBlade as a part of our company's disaster recovery plan which needed a solution that could efficiently and securely backup and restore any data. We chose this solution partially because of its ability to backup and then restore lost data with minimal corruption or loss of data. In comparison to a few other solutions we tested, Pure Storage FlashBlade came out on top. So far we haven't had any major issues with Pure Storage FlashBlade and the solutions has been suitable for a majority of our data storage needs. The interface is easy to use and the solution operates at an exceptional speed which minimises the amount of time we spend on storing and securing data, so that we have more time to analyse it.
  • High quality performance and speed.
  • Efficient data recovery.
  • Great UI and easy to use.
  • Minimal latency.
  • Can be costly.
  • Scalability options are limited.
  • Integration with external environments is difficult.
  • Ease of use
  • Expensive cost
  • Increased team produtivity
Pure Storage FlashBlade provided a flexible and secure solution which these alternatives couldn't quite match. The simple file management system and rapid performance made this solution come out on top for us. The only real benefit over Pure Storage FlashBlade that these other solutions offer is a better pricing plan and overall lower operational costs.

If you are looking for a rapid storage solution for your application then Pure Storage Flashblade is more than suitable option for large organisations. Generally we have found that its performance is robust, stable and secure and has been easily Managed by a small team within our organisation. The solution also offers a search engine functionality which makes it very easy to locate data and update or recover it as and when you need - a much faster solution than other options we have tried. I believe this solution is less suitable for smaller to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) due to the relatively high cost implication that this will have.
