Pure Storage FlashArray Review

The solution has reduced our power usage

What is our primary use case?

We use virtual servers on there.

How has it helped my organization?

We have tons of capacity on it.

What is most valuable?

It is fast and reliable. It works. 

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using it for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

For three years, we haven't had any trouble with it. It is reliable. Once it is installed, off it goes.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is handy. You can just add more drives. They automatically synchronize. You don't have to do anything but snap them in there. It is pretty easy.

How are customer service and technical support?

I can't even remember dealing with technical support. 

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

We had tons of old physical servers and needed the storage room. It was more cost-effective to set this solution up for running our VM environment off it.

The solution is bigger and faster than what we had before.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was pretty straightforward and simple. 

What about the implementation team?

We used Compunet for the deployment. Our experience with them was good.

What was our ROI?

The solution has reduced our power usage.

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

The solution could be cheaper.

There should be quite a bit of reduction of TCO with just licensing (and stuff) because we run the VM environment off it.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend to go with this solution.

We have integrated the solution with VMware, and the process was seamless. We've never had any trouble with it.

Flash drives make an amazing difference.
