Why it's a favorite: “I now love my storage. The Pure Storage SSD SAN performs inline compression, deduplication, and encryption of all virtual machine data before writing it to solid state drives. We have more than 100,000 IOPS at my disposal with less than 1 millisecond of latency for both reads and writes. And with a 5.9 to 1 data reduction level, this SSD shared storage solution costs the same as a hybrid/tiered SSD+HDD solution from much larger providers. It is also much easier and enjoyable to administer than any other storage solution I have encountered.”
