Pure Storage FlashArray Review

It simplifies the connection between our infrastructure and storage

What is our primary use case?

We use the space and optimize the makeup of the storage products.

How has it helped my organization?

It simplifies the connection between our infrastructure and storage.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is how it simplifies the management of the SAN.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product has made our infrastructure more stable and simplified.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not had any issues with scalability.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

In the past, we had Lenovo. With the Pure Storage, it improved and simplified our connections.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very simple. We put it on the rack, switched it on, and it worked.

What about the implementation team?

We use a reseller for the integration. We had a good experience with them.

What was our ROI?

We have seen a $15,000 ROI.

The total cost of ownership is not that much lower for flash than SSD.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I would prefer that they lower their pricing.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We only considered Pure Storage. 

My company stays focused with one solution (product) for approximately three years. Then, every three years, we make discussion whether to keep the solution or not.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Pure Storage, as it is well-established. It also simplifies and optimizes the right space.

The predictive performance analytics are good.
