What is most valuable?

Redundancy and the fault tolerance of the platform are the most impressive. Also, this allows all the hardware and software updates to be completed while the system is completely online.

What needs improvement?

The internal garbage collection process has been fixed recently in some OS updates so it is more efficient but that could be just a little better. That’s it!

What other advice do I have??

The m50 will be our production machine for a brand new property, we have almost finished building. I can personally state that the Pure Storage Flash Systems are the best built and Pure has the utmost professional customer care. Pure only... more»

What is most valuable?

It is difficult to say what features are valuable. It is an SSD array that has awesome performance, low submillisecond latency, and does what it is supposed to do. It just works, which is difficult for things to do anymore.

How has it helped my organization?

I don't really need to worry about storage anymore. I can focus on more critical issues. I log into the array interface maybe once every month to see what my deduplication ratio is and that is about it.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more detailed reporting on the data. Sure, it is great to see usage, trends, latency, and all the common stuff. However, it would be nice to know what are the exact VMs usage after deduplication and/or what that VMs actual... more»

What do you think of Pure Storage?

Improvements to My Organization: We tested our VDI environment on this array and it performed flawlessly and boosted the user experience. • Valuable Features: Data reduction and compression. Sub millisecond latency. • Room for Improvement: Had some issues with Purity not being entirely compatible with VMware ESXi. • Stability Issues: Had some issues with Purity not being entirely compatible with VMware ESXi. • Scalability Issues: No. • Customer Service and Technical Support: Very good.We did a PoC. • Previous Solutions: We use NetApp because of the variety of protocols it can support. • Initial Setup: Initial setup was by far the easiest. We racked and stacked the array and were up and running in 4 hours. • Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing: ...

What is most valuable?

The best feature is consistently lower latency, even when IOPS crank up to over 75K. The product maintains submillisecond response time, which is incredible.

How has it helped my organization?

FlashArray has allowed us to go all flash. There is no more worrying about how many IOPS our different storage tiers have and trying to buy more disks just to get higher performance. We simply don't worry about performance.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a Nagios monitoring plugin which watches the health and performance of the system. The only one available just checks volume capacity.
