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

Pros
The duplication algorithm allows us to get a lot more use out of less storage. We're running a five terabyte array right now and we're running probably about 30 terabytes on it. So the duplication rate is pretty phenomenal, without a cost to performance. It still runs pretty smoothly.What I really like about this program, is that it is easy to use and easy to configurate.The most valuable feature of this solution is reliability.The most valuable feature of this solution is its ease of use.It has benefited my organization because it has reduced time to insights.The most valuable features of this solution are its ease of use and performance.We're able to get higher-density workloads on the same infrastructure, and we have a smaller physical footprint. The performance is excellent – during our test the bottlenecks are never on the X array, it just keeps picking up the pace to match what you need. The real-time visibility is a differentiator in my opinion.It's incredibly easy to use and greatly simplified our ability to both deploy and manage our storage subsystems.

The whole product is based on point-in-time restore capabilities built into their storage appliance, and no one else I know does that.The unit has been running at 100% without an issue.Any time I have needed anything, from a simple question to someone to be onsite, the customer service has been exceptional.The Reduxio unit is superior in its ability to recover from any second.It has a very intuitive interface, it integrates more smoothly with our steps. With a different product from a different manufacturer, there are a lot more steps required to set up a volume, to make it available in VMware and to utilize it there.We like the way the Reduxio is designed, the way the managing/operating end is just so much easier; fewer steps, more intuitive steps. It has a number of features baked into it that, in other products, are additional licensed components, like compression and dedupe.The biggest feature, and one of the reasons we use it with the file shares, is its continuous Snapshotting. We can go back to almost to any point in time, not only to last night at midnight or a week ago, but 10 minutes ago or three-hours-and-so-many-seconds, or whatever the case may be. We already had a brush with ransomware in the past, so it's good to know we can dial back to just before a mishap happens.It's very intuitive, has a very modern interface. Instead of making the user set up a million parameters for things that the system knows better anyway, they put all the intelligence in the product and made the controls much easier.

Cons
Every time I think of something that needs to improve, they're one step ahead, which I love. The only area I wish to see improve, I believe is coming, is in the FlashBlade product. Blade implementation fell short on a few of the services.The UI for this solution needs to be improved.I would like to see replication and DR features in the next release of this solution.In the next release, I would like to see real-time analytics for further insight into consumption models.We would like to see VNC integration or be able to use Pure Storage with VNC.We've seen that when we create a POD in synchronous mode, it increases the latency.I want to see Pure Storage not only be for fast storage, but I want to see it be for the entire data center.

The only critique that we have is it needs the ability to have local users added. You have to log in as one built-in admin account. You can't create your own.It would be helpful to have the ability to recover virtual machines individually without having to restore the full LUN.t would be helpful to have a mobile app to monitor the storage array remotely.Needs to be made easier to use with slightly older versions of VMware.The ability to look at data at a file level would be useful, as well as the ability recover at that level. Right now, you can only recover whole volumes.The only thing that I'd like to see, at some point in time, is having the storage array being able to detect a ransomware attack. When you get hit by a ransomware it rewrites every block in your guest's virtual machine. So there should be a way for them to be able to detect that: "Hey, this is unusual, to see every block of this guest being rewritten all at one time," and then flag that as potential malware or ransomware.Scalability is a little unusual. We came from the NetApp world where, if you needed more disk space, you just added more drives into the chassis, whereas with Reduxio, if you need more disk space, you have to buy a new chassis.the only thing I would say negative about Reduxio is the cabling was a little bit confusing at first, but now that we understand it, it's easy. It was just so different from what we've seen before. That was the only hard part to get used to. The storage array is fully redundant, so there are some cross-connect cables that you have to run, from the A side to the B side, and the B side back to the A side, and we've just never seen anything like that before. But now that I understand the design, it makes complete sense. But initially it was confusing.

Pricing and Cost Advice
They can tout the functionality and cutting edge technology that they have, but that's where the price tag comes in. The cost is high, but I think as they grow their business and get more customers that it will probably go down a little bit.As far as the licensing costs, everything is included in the license.Our licensing fees are $500,000+ USD.With VMware, we pay $300,000 annually.We pay approximately $50,000 USD per year in licensing fees.With Pure Storage, we would like to continue seeing price reductions with flash storage. I don't think we're any different than anybody else when we continue to look to the industry for price reductions of both NVMe and traditional SSD storage. We would like to see these prices continue to decline and erode, even displacing large spinning disks.

The licensing is very simple with Reduxio. It is actually one of the attractions, unlike some of the other products. The other product we're using, in some of its incarnations, has extremely complex pricing, with every spindle having an associated license and fees. With Reduxio it's very simple. For the box - the hardware comes in essentially one configuration for the chassis, the unit (and you can buy multiple units and daisy-chain them) - there is no "a-la-carte," so many drives of this kind or that kind, etc. It has a basic hardware configuration. Then, through the software license, they allocate or assign you the right to use the full capacity, or half of it, or a quarter of it. Of course, if you're not using the full capacity but need to, it is a simple phone call to upgrade. It's as simple as it gets.Set up costs are minimal. We were early adopters so we received really good pricing.I think that you are able to buy a minimum capacity, then grow your capacity within the box as you expand your data needs.ROI is how much (time, money, resources) you will save in case of a ransomware attack because you had this box.I think the pricing is good value, because you're not just buying a storage array, you're buying a backup solution and a DR solution and a "time machine" solution, all bundled in one storage array. When we had NetApp storage we had to then go out and buy a copy of Veeam which is a backup solution. With the Reduxio, you still need to do backups but you don't need that software product.You want the best, you've got to pay for the best, that's all. In terms of licensing, just work with your VAR. The features, overall, were just too good to pass up, even though it comes at a premium.Only one device is sold. Negotiate the initial storage, but you can start small and move up with ease. Negotiate.One of the key selling points of the Reduxio was that it really is fully licensed for the unit. There are no additional licenses needed for the product, which really helps scalability. There were no additional options to purchase, per se. They were already wrapped into the product.
