Pure Storage FlashArray Review

Among the easiest solutions to install, it's self-contained and updates in place

What is most valuable?

It upgrades in place which means we'll be using it well into the future.

What needs improvement?

I recognize it's a difficult challenge, but I would like to see them make the pricing more reasonable. Of course, it is, after all, solid-state. It's not the same as "cheap and deep."

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a very stable product, all self-contained and very well-supported as well.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's definitely scalable. It can grow with a company's needs.

How was the initial setup?

It's one of the easiest out there, in terms of installation.

What was our ROI?

It's a great return on investment, based on the mission. When you're interested in high-performance there isn't much else that competes with it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at everything. In dealing with this, we got mission-specific. It's like different kinds of planes or sailboats: What's the mission? For this high-performance mission, that's what Pure is about.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it to colleagues. When performance is important, that's what Pure is all about.

I rate the solution at ten out of ten. Solid-state storage makes a lot of sense, they're 100 percent solid-state when you need that kind of performance. The pricing is very attractive and it delivers performance for the money.
