“The Nimble Storage CS700 and All Flash Shelf allowed us to consolidate our environment to ease management overhead and decrease our data center footprint by consuming only a quarter of the footprint of our previous platform. From everything I have learned about storage over the years, Nimble shouldn’t be able to deliver us 125,000 write IOPS from their adaptive flash arrays. I don’t know how Nimble does it, but it works like a dream.”
David Hewitt, Director of Information Systems, Grant Street Group
What is Adaptive Flash?
The ideal storage solution is one that can keep pace with aggressive — and unpredictable — performance and capacity demands. It must effectively protect data while allowing it to be consistently available to the users who need it most. The Adaptive Flash platform is Nimble Storage’s answer to the challenges facing modern enterprises. It intelligently and dynamically allocates storage resources, eliminating the tradeoff between performance and capacity.
Adaptive Flash Technology Overview
- Up to 10x reduction in datacenter footprint as well as lower power and cooling requirements
- Up to 500K IOPS performance
- Greater than five-nines level of system availability
- Easy configuration and rapid deployment across Fibre Channel or iSCSI networks
- Seamlessly scale to deliver enterprise-class performance and capacity, within a dramatically smaller footprint
The CS210 and CS215 provide value and performance for small to medium-sized IT organizations or remote offices, for workloads such as Microsoft Exchange and VDI.
The CS300 is ideal for midsize IT organizations or distributed sites of larger organizations. It offers the best capacity per £ for workloads like Microsoft applications, VDI, or virtual server consolidation. The CS300 delivers 1.6x more IOPS than the CS215.
The CS500 offers advanced performance for larger-scale deployments or IO-intensive workloads, like larger-scale VDI, and Oracle or SQL Server databases, and provides the best performance and IOPS per £. The CS500 achieves 5x the performance of the CS215.
The CS700 is designed for consolidating multiple large-scale critical applications with aggressive performance demands. It delivers approximately 7x the IOPS of the CS215
