One customer we're working with in particular is using FlashBlade along with another solution called an object engine. They're using that to revamp how they store their backups, then store them onsite. They can push stuff up to S3 and then archive into Glacier, so it reduces their onsite costs. View full review »

This solution has improved how our organization functions in the way that it has essentially made us not have to think about storage. That's probably the biggest selling point. Storage is boring and you don't want to think about it. From that point of view, it's provided a lot of benefits. It ticks the big boxes. It's fast, it's scalable, it's essentially zero-touch maintenance. All of those get us eighty, ninety percent of the way. The biggest feedback is that none of the teams have noticed. I'm not getting negative feedback which is a big improvement from where we were. View full review »

National Manager at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
We have an improved the lifecycle of database testing and has improved QA in the space that we use it for. Storage has been simplified 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. It's good to have a good way to back up high-performance type arrays like this, especially if we could back it up on the back end versus the front side where things are impacted. As a Pure Storage platform, the cost-benefit is hugely based on the deduplication and capacity. Otherwise, we would have had to have a bunch of arrays to support that capacity. The physical footprint of the array, the capacity that it's using, and the high performance are all things that we have seen benefit from. View full review »

It creates a much smaller footprint. Previously, we had a large data center with 30 racks with 12 racks of storage, and we are now down to one. So, a huge electric savings along with freeing our data center ports. View full review »

We needed a separate storage device because we have a large amount of data. The cost benefits of this storage have improved my organization. Has simplified storage because it is easy to use. It's plug-and-play. We don't need too much support or technical support to be able to start using it. There has been a reduction in the total cost of ownership by around 20%. View full review »

Senior technical architect at a marketing services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees
This solution has improved my organization in the way that we used to have a lot of spinning discs. There had to be multiple racks because of the capacity and performance required, now we can put it all in just a couple of Us. The ease of use of this solution has absolutely simplified storage for us. We've seen some good data reduction rates. We get about 4:1 at our data center. We're getting around 2:1 for the one that we're using for video editing. View full review »

Technical Director at Envestnet Yodlee
We are pretty sensitive to response times and have been running storages before PR. We used to not have a great response time but once we moved to this solution it has saved total production storage usage. It has better overall performance. There is predictive analysis that PR provides us and the customer. It's useful for as to translate what is being expected. We can calculate and plan the capacity based on the predictive analysis.
