Pure Storage FlashArray Performance Metrics

Do you monitor any performance metrics, such as Data Reduction Rates, Latency or Availability? If yes, how has the solution affected them?

Latency defines everything.

The data reduction rates vary for us. Anything from 6 to 1 down to 2 to 1, worst case. So it depends on our workload. Latency is always good. It's generally less than a millisecond across all the arrays we run.

Another way that it has helped my organization is that now we are seeing 3.6 to 1 on Oracle Databases. Our goal was 3, we had to have 3, so we got 3.6 to 1.

With every update we get, we get a reduction in the space used which has been pretty dramatic with each one of the upgrades that we've gone through.

Depending on what we have on it, some of our databases will get 4.8:1. When we do a big release our SQL tables change values so we'll see that reduced and we'll go up to sometimes 110% utilization. We're working with Pure Storage to try to fix that and see what we're changing so much. We also mistakenly had a 10pb on Pure so that data churn really reduced our usable storage. We're learning how to use Pure properly.

For one of our systems, the data reduction which was initially anticipated when we bought the FlashArray was lower than that expected production when we moved over.

We get about a 3.3 data reduction, which is good. That is not the total reduction, just dedupe and compression.

In one of our arrays we had a 35-to-1 data reduction, which is very outstanding. Not many places have that kind of benefit.

Latency needs a bit of work. It's pretty good but it needs to get below 300 microseconds. Then the data reduction is excellent. On average I see 12 to one data reduction.

We have perfect run through times and latency. We have a cluster system using two machines on Active-Active with a synchronized mirror.

One of the lesser sung advantages was when we started running our interface engine on Pure Storage. The ability to process messages and pass them through in our organization skyrocketed purely because of a disk that I owned which we were getting out of Pure Storage.

We are at about 3.0 to 4.0 in terms of data reduction.

IT Director at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
We have two arrays in two data centers. Normally, in the arrays, the latency is about 4.3 milliseconds per second, which is very good in all workloads. In terms of reduction, our customers are seeing about a seven to eight plus reduction in the capacity that they have.

The reliability is 100% and the latency is always lower than 1 millisecond.

We watch latency, then our I/Os. We care about how much we're pushing through the box, then what latency the box for read/writes is hitting. I have seen a decrease in read/write latency since moving to Pure Storage by seven milliseconds.

It has strong statistics and historical metrics with Pure1. Therefore, it has been everything that we have needed out of a platform.

We are able monitor I/O, latency, read/write, capacity used, and all the different metrics that the Pure gives us the ability to monitor.

The back-end data reporting for Pure Storage is phenomenal. The data that you can see on the performance of your customers' array, so you can be proactive about upgrades or enhancements, and is a phenomenal tool to have access to as a partner. I haven't seen this type of stuff out of anything of the other storage systems.
