Pure Storage FlashArray Review

Simplifies management for capacity-oriented workloads

What is our primary use case?

We use flash storage for VDI architecture and database architecture.

What is most valuable?

It's very fast and very easy to use. It performs well and is both flexible and compatible. We like it because it's easy to use. We transferred our old architecture from hyper storage to all-flash storage. It made our business faster and more connected to our customers.

The dashboard is very friendly. We can see information about IPs and the bandwidth and every host who connects to it — it's very useful.
