Pure Storage FlashArray Review

It is really fast and the support has been good

What is most valuable?

It's really fast.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

So long as it's powered, it is stable. We had someone drop the power to our Pure Storage array once, then everything went down. However, that wasn't Pure Storage's fault. It was just what happened.

How are customer service and technical support?

The support has been good.

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

We moved off of VMAX storage. It wasn't keeping up with the workloads that we had. Pure has done this for us.

What was our ROI?

From my previous employment, where we used it, everyone thinks about Pure Storage running their EMR or HIMS. One of the lesser sung advantages was when we started running our interface engine on Pure Storage. The ability to process messages and pass them through in our organization skyrocketed purely because of a disk that I owned which we were getting out of Pure Storage. People should think about that with their help record. They don't think about that with something like their messaging platform or their interface engine.

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

It's expensive, but you get what you pay for.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend the solution to my colleagues.
