Senior Systems Administrator for Research at Chapman University
Our primary use case has been our production Oracle campus management database environment. We use Oracle PeopleSoft as our campus management solution and underneath that we have about six terabytes of Oracle Database. Our most demanding use-case for Pure Storage has been hosting these high performance, transactional databases, while also hosting all of our other critical application storage needs (MSSql data-warehouse, BI/Analytics, VMWare).

Thayne Yost
Senior Network Engineer at US Dept of Energy Idaho Operations Office
In our company, we implemented a Pure Storage FlashArray for our VM virtualized environment. We do have vCenter integrated with Pure Storage. We use that application to deploy virtual volumes on our Pure Storage solution. We are still in the beginning stages, so we only have four virtual systems running on it. However, in the coming months, we will be migrating the bulk of all of our VMs over to vCenter and Pure Storage. View full review »

We use the FlashArray X20, M20, M10. We have regulations against cloud, so we're mostly on-Prem. However, we do use Office 365 for email and we have Azure for development on another team but I don't manage that team. Our primary use case of this solution is to house data stores on virtual machines. View full review »

DBA0bbf
DBA at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
We primarily use this solution for our SQL server in an on-premises deployment. Having a dedicated array for our SQL server is very nice. We are running VMware on Pure, and the main driver for that is because it is all-flash. Also, we wanted a dedicated solution for our SQL environment. Running on Pure has given us the ability to scale out our SQL environments. We tripled our environment in the past three years since implementing this solution, and we have not had any issues with the storage keeping up with the workloads. We are making use of some of the VMware integrations that have been developed by Pure, but we are really waiting for the copy data management part. View full review »

We use the solution on-premises and each array has a different use case. We have VDI, SQL, and General and the program provide better integration between the management and visibility of the solution. Our organization takes advantage of the VMware integration developed by Parrot and this gives us a lower level administrative access to more admins that don't have a background in storage.
