Improvements in scalability, availability, performance, and functionality of midrange storage systems have blurred the boundaries between network-attached, midrange, and high-end storage systems. This Magic Quadrant will help IT leaders understand storage vendors' strategies and market strengths.
Storage plays a critical role in the datacenter. To keep up with the performance, capacity, availability, and efficiency needs of today’s enterprise, storage is undergoing a transformation by leveraging flash, high-capacity disks, and integrated data management. This paper discusses how Nimble Storage’s flash-optimized architecture is engineered to accelerate applications, scale performance and capacity, protect data, and make IT more productive and empowered.
Storage is a critical factor when virtualizing your business-critical applications like Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server, and Oracle databases. What features should you look for when selecting a storage vendor? Download this tech overview to learn how flash-optimized Nimble Storage accelerates performance, maximizes utilization, and cost-effectively protects your mission-critical data.
Collaboration and email applications such as Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange, and SharePoint are critical for business productivity. But care needs to be taken in selecting the right infrastructure for hosting these applications. Download this technical overview and learn how VMware, Cisco, and Nimble Storage have developed a pre-validated reference architecture that delivers industry-leading performance, data protection, and management simplicity.
Understanding the latest developments in storage technology is crucial when planning a virtual server storage architecture, and choosing the wrong storage architecture can dramatically impair your ability to provide application resources and recoverability. This best practices guide will show you how to lay the foundation for an efficient, easy-to-manage storage environment.
Nimble Storage’s patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL™) is the industry’s first flash-optimized storage designed from the ground up to maximize efficiency. In this product brief, you’ll learn how Nimble Storage customers run more workloads with less storage infrastructure, protect more data, and streamline data management so they can focus on higher-value projects.
It’s easy to underestimate the performance and capacity requirements for VDI storage, and missteps now can lead to expensive problems later. In “Risk-Free Storage for VDI,” you’ll learn how Nimble Storage delivers responsive performance to handle peak VDI workloads, integrated data protection, and instant backups and restores—all for dramatically less than you’re paying now.
