There are a number of things that we at Pure Storage are justifiably proud of, such as; our industry leading NPS score, which is externally certified by Satmetrix. Pure is a leader in the Gartner magic quadrant for all flash arrays, democratizing NVMe flash storage for the masses and disrupting the storage industry in general. But the one thing we value above all else is when our customers articulate the experience they enjoy when owning our products, as one such customer did via Twitter here:
The comment above alludes to one of the most popular uses cases for SQL Server on FlashArray™. The process of taking snapshots to create or refresh environments is not only fast and agile, but it can also be integrated into any manner of workflows via our PowerShell and Python software development kits. In fact, we have customers whose storage arrays see vastly more activity instigated via scripts than by human IT staff, and this is a growing trend.
Why Our Customers Like The Pure Experience So Much
The reason we are held in such high esteem by our customers goes beyond this one data service. A message we consistently receive from our customers, irrespective of their size, is that they love the ease of use that comes with our products. Simplicity and ease of use is a mantra at Pure and built into the DNA of our engineering teams. This ease of use allows our customers to switch from the legacy stance of being on the back foot and having to manage storage that is complex and cumbersome. In contrast, with Pure our customers step forward and enjoy a simple, powerful, and reliable storage experience which leads to feedback such as “It simply just works”.

As we roll out new features, our customers have found that we are sticking to our core values and principles of simplicity and ease of use. If the legacy storage platforms your organisation runs SQL Server workloads on are holding you back, take a look at Pure:
