System Performance
  • Up to 100,000 32K IOPS @ <1ms average latency
  • 3 GB/s bandwidth
  • Up to 150,000 32K IOPS @ <1ms average latency
  • 5 GB/s bandwidth
  • Up to 200,000 32K IOPS @ <1ms average latency
  • 7 GB/s bandwidth

Why does Pure Storage quote 32K, not 4K IOPS? The industry commonly markets 4K IOPS benchmark to make numbers look high, but real-world environments are dominated by IO sizes of 32K or larger. Pure Storage has optimized the FlashArray for the real-world. FlashArray adapts automatically to 512B-32KB IO for superior performance, scalability, and data reduction.

System Capacity
  • Up to 40+ TBs effective capacity
  • 2.75-11 TB raw capacity
  • Up to 125+ TBs effective capacity
  • 11-35 TB raw capacity
  • Up to 250+ TBs effective capacity
  • 22-70 TB raw capacity

Effective capacity assumes HA, RAID, and metadata overhead, GB-to-GiB conversion, and includes benefit of data reduction with always-on inline deduplication, compression & pattern removal. Average data reduction is calculated at 6-to-1. Some customers see data reduction in excess of 20-to-1. Effective capacity has no upper limit and will vary depending on workload.

Host Connectivity
  • 4 x 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel or
  • 4 x 10 Gb/s Ethernet iSCSI (all 405 systems include Replication Ports)
  • 8 x 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel or
  • 8 x 10 Gb/s Ethernet iSCSI or
  • 8 x 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel and 4 x 10 Gb/s iSCSI or
  • 8 x 10 Gb/s iSCSI and 4 x 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel (all 420 systems include Replication ports)
  • 8 x 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel or
  • 8 x 10 Gb/s Ethernet iSCSI or
  • 12 x 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel or
  • 12 x 10 Gb/s Ethernet iSCSI or
  • 8 x 10 Gb/s iSCSI and 4 x 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel or
  • 8 x 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel + 4 x 10 Gb/s iSCSI (all 450 systems include Replication Ports)

Host connectivity and ports are calcuated per paired HA system. The Pure Storage FlashArray serves IO from both active/active controllers.
