Pure Storage has optimized the FlashArray for the real world, not the 4K vanity benchmark.
Pure Storage implements a variable internal block size, meaning that IOs ranging from 512bytes to 128K are all processed as “one IO” inside Purity
Competitive 4K-aligned flash appliances break-up all incoming IO into 4K chunks, yielding a linear drop-off in performance with IO size. 1 64K IO = 16 4K IOs
The industry commonly markets a 4K IOPS benchmark to make numbers look high, but real-world environments are dominated by IO sizes of 32K or larger.
Simplify with no migrations, no downtime, and full performance that’s always available.
