We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The way that they handle the DR is very good because when there is a failover, it is seamless to the users.""The features that I have found most valuable are their retention logs. The other thing I have found most valuable is the way they handle the BHEA. Basically the DNS and everything is managed by itself. It is seamless to the users.""Feature-wise, it has a lot of features. The most valuable features include de-duplication, encryption, version controlling, support, and tamper-proof data."

"We have seen a reduction in the total cost of ownership by around 20%.""I would rate this solution an eight plus. It has has good flexibility and stability, it's easy to manage and the response time is good.""It has also helped to simplify storage for us in the way that it's easy to manage. Their automatic monitoring really helps when things break or are about to break. They see a problem coming and alert us even before our own system does.""The initial setup was straightforward. If you know how to plug in power and network you're pretty much qualified. They were on site to configure the network, the box to fit into our network architecture. Other than that, we self-managed from there.""Speed and ease of use are the two most valuable features.""It has absolutely simplified our storage because the dashboards on the consoles show a clear understanding of where you are, and it is also very easy to provision. This been a big help for our teams.""The ease of deployment and management has helped us simplify our storage. We also do not have to worry about capacity management as much. A lot of these things are native to Pure Storage.""It helps simplify our storage, because the user interface is very simple and the installation is easy."

Cons
"What is lacking in this solution is a simple process to migrate from existing systems.""In terms of the customer support, I can say it's a mixed reaction depending on the country.""They should improve the user interface. It's a little bit complex. It does not have a self-learning method. You need to know how to use it before you touch the system. The user interface is not self-explanatory."

"We haven't been able to use much of the cloud area of Pure Storage. We have a storage server and it would be better if it could integrate with other cloud features of this solution.""I would like to see more deduplication.""In the realm of micro-services, I think that Pure Storage can do well if they start getting in there and making their arrays more micro-services ready.""The Pure Storage Orchestrator is our biggest pain point at the moment. If we can have more say in future developments of feature sets that we will need to support for our use case, that would be pretty beneficial to us.""I would like to see better integration.""On our dedupe during our initial buy, we were expecting a number a little higher like 4x. However, we are getting about 3.6. While it is close enough, it doesn't quite hit the numbers. So, this has been a challenge.""They need better integration with public clouds along with a better hybrid solution.""I would like to have Snapshots and Snapmail in the next release. People who came from a NetApp background, especially expect these features."

"We used a reseller for the purchase.""Our customers have seen a reduction in TCO.""I have seen ROI. It has allowed me to increase the density of my VMs without having to purchase anything additional.""Our licensing is renewed annually.""Support is a separate line item. Support is a different cost, but whatever your support is now, that's what you're going to pay forever. If your support's $100 today, six years from now it's $100. It doesn't fluctuate unless you upgrade it, or change it, etc."
