"There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint."
"The high performance is very valuable, as well as the enterprise reliability features."
"We have been able to consolidate storage into Pavilion. Pavilions are our only SANs because it is a bring your own disk solution. When new drives come out, we are able to take out half of the drives in the system, put in new drives, move our VMs over to the new drives, take the other drives out, and populate those with new drives. Then, we are suddenly twice as dense as we were before. NVMe flash is only going to get denser and cheaper so we can make use of that every couple of years by just throwing newer disks into it at a fraction of the cost of a new SAN."
"It's just very easy for general block storage."
"This solution is very scalable."
"At this point, I don't know anything that they could provide in a better way."
"The all-flash disc is the most valuable feature of this solution."
"The compression and deduplication features help to make the best use of the capacity."
"This is the best all-flash storage array on the market."
"We're getting good performance, and the compression ratio is also very good in Pure Storage FlashArray."
"The most valuable features in Pure Storage FlashArray are deduplication and active cluster."
"This has been one of the most reliable storage systems that I have ever used."
"In our current configuration, we can only run the line controllers in high availability, active-standby mode, whereas we would like to see active-active implemented."
"The rail system that Pavilion uses to mount up into a standard Dell or APC cabinet extends further back than normal rails, and they cover up the zero PDU slot. So, I don't like the rail system that comes with the device. That is my biggest complaint."
"I would like to see the management layer improved."
"The solution could improve by having a multi-tenant feature."
"CIFS and SMB Shares cannot be mounted directly."
"Areas for improvement would be the financial operations. In the next release, I would like to see a NAS protocol included."
"We would like to be able to connect to data tape for backup, specifically to the LTO backups."
"FlashArray's capacity for forecasting should be improved because it needs to be a bit more current. I think it's bundled with the deduplication and other compression factors. We need more user interfaces for forecasting in this software and more interfaces need to be integrated with this array management tool."
"The file functionality could be better."
"It is not possible to create a cluster on top of multiple arrays."
"The integration capabilities could be improved."
"The write performance could be improved because it is less than half of the read performance."
