$AllDevices = gwmi -Class Win32_DiskDrive -Namespace 'root\CIMV2'
ForEach ($Device in $AllDevices) 
{
    if($Device.Model -like 'PURE FlashArray*') {
        @{
        Name=$Device.Name;
        Caption=$Device.Caption;
        Index=$Device.Index;
        SerialNo=$Device.SerialNumber;
        }
    }
}
