Nimble Storage has created the industry's first flash-optimized storage engineered from the ground up for maximum efficiency. Nimble Storage solutions integrate the exceptional performance of flash with the favorable economics of high-capacity hard disk drives—making it ideal for storing and protecting data for all of your critical applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, server virtualization, and VDI.
Nimble Storage is built on the patented CACHE ACCELERATED SEQUENTIAL LAYOUT (CASL™) ARCHITECTURE and delivers:
Nimble Storage solutions are built on the patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL™) architecture. CASL differs from the traditional bolt-on approach of using flash as a tier. Instead, CASL is designed from the ground up to leverage the lightning-fast random read performance of flash and the cost-effective capacity of hard disk drives. What's more, CASL incorporates innovative efficiency features, such as in-line variable-block compression, cloning, and integrated snapshots to store and serve more data in less space.
Some of CASL's key innovations include:
Here are some of the key features that come standard in a Nimble Storage array:
|Dynamic Caching||Reads active data from flash cache, which is populated on writes or first read||Accelerate read operations, with sub-millisecond latency|
|Write-Optimized Data Layout||Coalesces random writes and sequentially writes them to disk as a full stripe||Accelerate writes as much as 100x, and get sub-millisecond latency and optimal disk utilization|
|Universal Compression||Always-on inline compression for all workloads||Reduce capacity needs 30-75% depending on the workload with no performance impact|
|Thin Provisioning||Allocates disk space to a volume only as data is written||Pool storage, share free space and maximize utilization|
|Scale-Out Clustering||Combine multiple arrays into a scale-out storage cluster||Linearly scale beyond performance and capacity limits of a single storage array while managing these multiple arrays as one|
|Instant Snapshot and Recovery||Backup and restore data using point-in-time, space-efficient snapshots taken at regular intervals||Retain months of frequent snapshots (improving RPO) with no performance impact--eliminating backup windows and speeding up restores (improving RTO)|
|Efficient Replication||Copies compressed, changed data to the secondary site for disaster recovery||Deploy affordable and verifiable disaster recovery and efficiently backup remote sites over the WAN|
|Zero-Copy Clones||Create copies of existing active volumes without needing to copy data||Create clones in seconds and save disk space – ideal for VDI and test/development|
|Host and Application Integration|
|Custom Application Profiles||Pre-defined policies for block size, caching, compression and data protection for Microsoft applications and VMware||Eliminate the need for manual tuning of storage including data protection configuration|
|Windows VSS Enablement||Nimble Storage Driver for the Microsoft VSS framework for consistent backup||Take application-consistent backups and simplify data protection for Exchange and SQL Server|
|VMware Integration||Monitor, provision and take snapshots from VMware vCenter||Manage storage from vCenter and take consistent backups of virtual machines|
|VMware Site Recovery Manager Adapter||Support disaster recovery automation for VMware including failover/failback||Simplifies disaster recovery, including testing failover/failback|
|Management and Support|
|Proactive Wellness||Real-time monitoring and analysis; sends alerts on critical issues||Spot and remedy potential issues, maximizing uptime, performance and utilization|
|Secure Remote Support||Allows remote troubleshooting, configuration and problem resolution||Reduce burden on IT staff and quickly resolve problems|
|Non-Disruptive Upgrades||Upgrade software with no disruption to applications||Maximize uptime and user productivity through continuous availability|
