Pure Storage FlashArray Review

Significantly reduced our storage volume, while being administered by just one person

What is most valuable?

The first year, we started out with one or five terabytes and it took what was 20 terabytes of storage down to less than one terabyte. Then we added another one and I think the total storage is five terabytes now.

The UI is pretty good.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's absolutely a stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's scalable. We started with a very small storage array and now we're in a much larger one. I think we're up to 40 terabytes.

How are customer service and technical support?

We only use tech support infrequently. We don't need to call them. It's easy to use, straightforward. Once it's set up, it does what we need it to do.

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

Price is about the only thing that's wrong with it. A little bit better pricing would be great. The client environment for a non-profit 501C3 organization makes it much harder for us to come up with the dollars and to cover the increased cost of hardware support, but we do like the way the product runs. It's perfect for us.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend this product to a colleague because of what it can do. I've already done that. I've already referenced several other nonprofits, human service organizations, and long-term care facilities. We've spoken highly of Pure. For an organization, it can take storage from 40 terabytes down to five terabytes. It's excellent.

Our user base consists of 3,000 people but it takes just one person to manage it - ease of use.
