ESG Lab Validation: Consolidating Workloads with VMware and Pure Storage


This ESG Lab Validation report documents hands-on testing and validation of the Pure Storage FlashArray//M storage system. The goal of the report is to prove that tier-1 application workloads such as desktop virtualization, databases, and email can be run on a shared, consolidated storage array without compromising service levels, while delivering consistent sub-millisecond response times. A 5,000-user enterprise was simulated to validate this premise, running on a single all-flash storage array. In addition, failure scenarios were introduced to test resiliency.
