CS-Series arrays are based on Nimble's patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) architecture. CASL has been designed from the ground up to optimize performance, capacity, and data protection - at an affordable price. CASL innovations accelerate read and write performance while optimizing capacity and snapshot efficiency. Built in data protection simplifies backup and disaster recovery.
Built in RAID protection and data scrubbing provide enhanced data integrity. Real-time monitoring and non-disruptive upgrades ensure minimal disruption and downtime. To keep systems running in top condition, alerts notify customers of potential issues before a failure occurs.
The comprehensive command console simplifies troubleshooting and ongoing administration. And when support is needed, the Nimble support infrastructure allows for easy data collection.
Nimble software is designed for IT generalists. An intuitive user interface enables customers to get systems up and running in hours. Storage, backup, and disaster recovery can each be configured in just three steps. Predefined application templates take the guesswork out of tuning Nimble storage to for specific workloads.
- Affordable high performance
- Instant backups and restores
- Seamless scaling
- Cloud-based storage management
- Engineered for Efficiency
Demands for better storage performance, scalability, data protection, and simplicity continue to grow in today’s datacenter. The rapid adoption of virtualization and server consolidation has further compounded the need for network storage that can keep up with these demands. Nimble Storage makes it possible for IT to tackle them all head on. Nimble Storage designed its Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASLTM) architecture to help large and small IT organizations address their storage challenges. As the industry’s first flash-optimized storage architecture designed from the ground up, CASL effectively combines the performance of flash for reads with a unique data layout optimized for writes. The result is high-performance, efficient storage. CASL also includes integrated data protection and management functionality required by today’s demanding applications, eliminating the need for separate backup storage solutions and tools. These characteristics make the Nimble Storage CS-Series the ideal storage platform for mainstream IT applications in a variety of environments, ranging from midsize deployments with hundreds of users to large enterprises with thousands of employees.
- Nimble Storage CS200 and CS400 Series
Choosing the right Nimble Storage array is simple. The CS200 Series is a good fit for midsize businesses or distributed sites of larger organizations, supporting workloads such as Microsoft applications, VDI, or virtual server consolidation. For IO-intensive workloads, such as transaction processing supported by Oracle or large-scale VDI deployments, the CS400 Series delivers higher performance. Nimble Storage arrays come standard with full software functionality, so there are no hidden costs.
- Scale to Fit with Scale-Out Architecture
CASL’s scale-to-fit capabilities make it easy to non-disruptively scale the CS-Series to meet both the growing capacity and performance needs of today’s datacenter. Storage can be scaled to hundreds of terabytes by adding disk shelves. Performance can be enhanced through the addition of higher capacity SSDs able to support larger amounts of active data. For additional throughput, a CS200 system can be upgraded to a CS400 non-disruptively. Nimble Storage also enables scaling of performance and capacity beyond the physical limitations of a single array, to a storage cluster comprised of any combination of Nimble arrays. This seamless scaling of performance and capacity can help eliminate performance hotspots and storage silos, enabling substantial management efficiency and extending overall storage investment. Nimble Storage hybrid arrays deliver the right mix of high performance and efficient capacity for mainstream workloads in IT organizations of all sizes.
- InfoSight and Proactive Wellness
Nimble Storage InfoSight leverages the power of data sciences to drive increased operational efficiency across the spectrum of storage lifecycle activities. Nimble goes beyond the traditional support model to keep storage operating at peak efficiency and performance with virtually no downtime. The combination of proactive monitoring and analysis, remote technical support, and parts repair/replacement ensures smooth operations.
