Pure Storage FlashArray Review

A great product for Block Storage

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for block storage.

What is most valuable?

I like that every few years, they provide us with a free controller upgrade.

What needs improvement?

It would be nice to have a little more control. I feel like there is too much automation; the user doesn't have any manual input. There's not a lot of options for the administrator compared to other solutions

For how long have I used the solution?

This is our first year using Pure Storage FlashArray

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution is very scalable.

What other advice do I have?

We did a POC before buying this solution. If you're interested in using this solution, I recommend that you do the same — see if you like it. It's a good product for block storage; It offers very good performance. 

Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give Pure Storage FlashArray a rating of nine. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
