Pure Storage FlashBlade Review

Improves our organization by making the management much easier to access and not as time consuming

What is our primary use case?

It is our storage solution.

How has it helped my organization?

It improves our organization by making the management much easier to access and not as time consuming. It has made the management easy and simple.

We use it to monitor latency. The solution corrects the latency and makes it easier.

For space requirements, it helps expand what we are trying to use it for on the network, which is all positive.

It does a great job of capacity planning for us.

What is most valuable?

The management is its most valuable feature.

The predictive performance analytics are pretty good.

The simplicity of the solution is great.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is pretty good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is pretty good.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is pretty fast. Everything is good with the technical support.

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

We use Nimble. We found out that Nimble had a lot of latency issues, so we decided to switch to Pure Storage. Ever since then, everything has been running a lot more smoothly.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

We will be upgrading our controllers soon.

What about the implementation team?

We used a consultant with our deployment. The experience was pretty good.

What was our ROI?

It reducing our total cost of ownership by 10 percent.

I have not seen ROI.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Through past experience, we all decided that Pure Storage was a better fit for our environment.

The interface is a lot better than most other storage solutions. We have Nimble, as well, and I prefer the whole layout of Pure Storage over any other storage solution.

While Nimble is definite good, I would recommend Pure Storage because it is a pretty good system.

What other advice do I have?

We have integrated it with VMware. The integration process is pretty good. Especially with VMware, it helps with the capacity of it.

I would rate it as a nine (out of ten). Altogether, it is a pretty good system. Everything is well setup: The management, interface, and everything else are all pretty good.
