More Cloudian HyperStore Pros »

"The speed of the Pure FlashArray is very, very fast and nothing in the market can compare to it.""The most valuable features are the replication of data and the continuous snapshot that we can take from the disc.""At this point, I don't know anything that they could provide in a better way.""I like its speed. It has all the features that I need.""It's very fast and very easy to use. It performs well and is both flexible and compatible. We like it because it's easy to use.""The mobile app is very helpful.""This solution is very scalable.""Pure Storage is extremely reliable — it's never failed."

Cons
"It is a cloud-based environment and at times, it is not very simple to use."

More Cloudian HyperStore Cons »

"It is not possible to create a cluster on top of multiple arrays.""The problem is that we can only make a few groups, around five or six groups. I like groups and we need a lot of them. We had to put all the information in only a few groups and cannot make a more detailed separation of them.""It would be nice to have a better view of the allocated capacity on their Platform as a Service solution because we have to do some manual calculations to understand how much we are going to pay every month to use the storage that is allocated.""Its price needs improvement. Its price is almost double than any other flash storage solution.""The integration capabilities could be improved.""The solution is not cheap.""I feel like there is too much automation; the user doesn't have any manual input.""On a couple of occasions, the waiting time for an upgrade has been pretty substantial."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Our fees are approximately half a dollar per gigabyte."

More Cloudian HyperStore Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Its price is almost double than any other flash storage solution.""The price, in general, is around $100,000, however, I know it costs more.""They have a standardized fee; it's been the same price for 10 years straight. I am happy with the price — I think it's good.""We do not incur additional costs beyond the licensing fee.""My organization has a yearly license, but I believe that Pure Storage FlashArray has capacity-based licenses as well. I'm definitely happy with the pricing.""There is an annual or perpetual license required for this solution.""Pure is typically more expensive than everyone else. You get what you pay for, but I have lost deals to similar solutions because of pricing. They include everything, and that's another positive about Pure Storage. They aren't trying to nickel and dime their customers for different features. It is all included in one price. The license is by capacity, and the price depends on the capacity and the discount we're getting from the vendor. You get the SKU of the physical appliance, support, and maintenance, and that's it. You're licensed for whatever feature they offer. It is all rolled up into the price of the appliance.""The pricing is reasonable."

Top Answer: Processes that used to take 40 minutes to two hours can be completed in five minutes.
Top Answer: When we bought the unit, we bought per capacity. So, the licensing is per capacity, and the only thing that we have to buy every year or every three years is maintenance. Included in that maintenance… more »
