What do you like best?

Pure Storage is Simple, Intuitive and Reliable. I've had no major issues in 4 years of working with the product. I really love the Evergreen option - allowing us to upgrade our arrays every 3 years, completely non-disruptively and only at the cost of keeping up Maintenance on the array. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's rare I can recommend a product without any caveats - this is one of them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do it. You won't regret it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We saw 4x performance improvements in our workloads over our spinning disks, and about 1.5x improvement over our previous flash arrays.

Time spent managing the arrays has decreased by a factor of 4.

Firmware upgrades are significantly easier as well, just set up a time and allow the Pure Engineers in remotely to do their thing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It provides safe and reliable access to my information.

It facilitates the intercom the rest of users of the company and customers.

It favors the realization of projects throughout the company.

Access in real time and without displacements.

Implementation much faster and with less risk when hosting large files.

Great cost and mobility savings.

The documentation is accessed without the need for internet access Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The document manager for storing all documentation has the disadvantage that it does not allow linking directly from the desktop. This action has to be done from the application with what is not automatic.

Improvable learning curve. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Perfect solution for file hosting on the internet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using this tool, I realize how essential it is for me at work because it allows me to access any project I am currently in. Highlight the great capacity it has for large files and its speed in loading and unloading. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Lo que más destacaría es la integración con otros sistemas operativos. Tengo que reconocer que tiene muy buena integración y escalabilidad con las principales tecnologías de trabajo. La cuenta gratuita básica aunque es limitada en espacio permite gestionar bastantes datos que no ocupen mucho lo que facilita el tener una visión más pormenorizada de este producto. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

A mejorar es la accesibilidad con mi disolvió móvil en el tema de sincronización ya que no puede acceder a determinados archivos incluso offline. La versión gratuita no permite editar los archivos lo que puede provocar dificultades a la hora de trabajar en equipo y ser necesario variaciones en los mismos. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Muy buen producto con una versión gratuita para el almacenamiento masivo de datos en la nube que hace que la organización en la gestión de documentación sea muy accesible y fácil de manejar. La veríais de pago incluye muchas más funcionalidades como creación de contraseñas y controles de seguridad lo que confiere mayor seguridad en el tratamiento de datos. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

La descarga y la utilización de este producto es muy sencilla de usar. La integración con otros sistemas operativos como Linux esta perfectamente integrada. La descarga es muy rápida y eficaz únicamente a la hora de guardar mi archivos tengo que crear una carpeta local donde tener almacenados todos mis documentos de una manera sincronizada con el resto de mis dispositivos. La visualización y las características hacen que sea agradable el poder trabajar con esta herramienta moderna lo que facilita el trabajo diario. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Support is the best of any vendor I have worked with and the vision and direction they are going is in the right direction. They once solved a networking problem through a storage ticket. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Price, this stuff is EXPENSIVE, and its getting more expensive, not cheaper as time goes on, which is breaking the trend of storage to go down in cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider the price, but if you can afford it it is very solid software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

Performance of the array is very high. We immediately noticed users reboot times, Read/Write's and overall user experience improve

Best solution out in the market for any VDI environment as it provides the users an experience that cannot be achieved using spinning disks.

Support is great: We had a support engineer dig through Microsoft settings for multipathing on iSCSI initiators. He did this on two different occasions! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The ability to throttle a specific LUN on the Pure Storage would be nice. Not sure of the implications though. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

high IO environments as well as eases the burden of array management. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
