Pure Storage FlashBlade Review

Better overall performance and has saved total production storage usage

How has it helped my organization?

We are pretty sensitive to response times and have been running storages before PR. We used to not have a great response time but once we moved to this solution it has saved total production storage usage. It has better overall performance. 

There is predictive analysis that PR provides us and the customer. It's useful for as to translate what is being expected. We can calculate and plan the capacity based on the predictive analysis.

Deduplication and response time are its most valuable features.

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Has been pretty stable. We haven't encountered any issues.
