"An area for improvement in Pure Storage FlashBlade is its price. It could be reduced. The technical support for Pure Storage FlashBlade also needs improvement. It used to be good, with more experienced engineers. Nowadays, it isn't, and it takes longer for support to solve problems.""I would like to see the licensing fees improved as well as the price per terabytes.""There could be improvements in public cloud integration.""It would be nice if you could store file-based in the same box with the same technology.""It usually comes down to just what you hit and the value you're getting when you spend the money and license the products. I would always go, "If you want to make things better, lower your price and make your licensing simpler." There's always an opportunity around that.""The solution is expensive.""I want efficiency. FlashBlade doesn't have efficiency now.""There is some room for new features related to authentication and integration with Kubernetes, and other solution using S3 Bucket."
