With InfoSight™, Nimble Storage takes a new approach to the storage lifecycle, one that leverages the power of deep-data analytics and cloud-based management to deliver true operational efficiency across all storage activities.

InfoSight, an integral part of Nimble’s Adaptive Flash platform, ensures the peak health of storage infrastructure by identifying problems, and offering solutions, in real time. InfoSight provides expert guidance for deploying the right balance of enterprise cloud storage resources — dynamically and intelligently — to satisfy the changing demands of business-critical applications.

InfoSight consists of:

  • The InfoSight Engine: A data collection and analysis engine comprised of powerful analytics, system modeling capabilities, and predictive algorithms.
  • The InfoSight Portal: A secure online portal which serves as a window into the InfoSight Engine.
  • Proactive Wellness: Proactive alerts for system health, performance, and protection gaps. Performance correlation analytics quickly identify leading factors contributing to performance or latency issues.

This “deep data” approach to customer support delivers storage health insights that can be leveraged to streamline maintenance by enabling granular alerting, accurate forecasting, and a level of overall storage health insight that vastly improves productivity and optimizes system availability.

  • Manageability: InfoSight is cloud-based, so agents or data collection infrastructure do not have to be installed in the datacenter. All updates are instantly available.
  • Usability: InfoSight enables proactive system health and support. Insightful and actionable information is presented through intuitive dashboards, including performance correlation analytics.
  • Accessibility: InfoSight can be accessed from anywhere, anytime, on any device. One-click reporting and export capabilities make it the simplest way to monitor and manage Nimble Storage environments. Registered Nimble resellers can also request access to their customers’ InfoSight portals, allowing them to be more proactive.

Nimble Storage InfoSight

NimbleConnect is a vibrant online community where members can connect with other users, partners, and experts from Nimble Storage worldwide to leverage real-world deployments for peer insights and best practices

  • Using systems modeling, predictive algorithms, and statistical analysis, InfoSight™ solves storage administrators’ most difficult problems. Infosight also ensures storage resources are dynamically and intelligently deployed to satisfy the changing needs of business-critical applications, a key facet of Nimble Storage’s Adaptive Flash platform.

    At the heart of InfoSight is a powerful engine comprised of deep data analytics applied to telemetry data gathered from Nimble arrays deployed across the globe. More than 30 million sensor values are collected per day per Nimble Storage array.

    The InfoSight Engine transforms the millions of gathered data points into actionable information that allows customers to realize significant operational efficiency through:

    • Maintaining optimal storage performance
    • Projecting storage capacity needs
    • Proactively monitoring storage health and getting granular alerts

  • Through the InfoSight™ Portal, customers have a window into the InfoSight Engine. The InfoSight Engine leverages deep data analytics to build a complete picture of the overall health of Nimble Storage arrays across any single or multi-site environment. Administrators no longer have to manually gather and process logs and performance data to identify trends or detect performance issues.

    The insights and actionable information presented via the InfoSight Portal help customers adhere to storage best practices and to make intelligent decisions about how to evolve their storage environments to support ever-changing workloads. And now Nimble resellers can request access to their customers’ InfoSight Portal and leverage the same information, allowing them to be more proactive in providing recommendations to their customers.

    The InfoSight Portal transforms the spectrum of time-consuming storage lifecycle activities into a seamless, instant experience through:

    • Granular Event-Based Alerting: Customize alerts for monitoring and proactive case generation
    • Performance Recommendations: Gain insight into the optimal configuration for changing workloads
    • New Performance Correlation Analytics: Quickly diagnose factors affecting performance, saving hours or days of manual data collection and analysis
    • Comprehensive Dashboard Views: Get complex storage health and performance information in an easy-to-understand, graphical format
    • Executive Summary: Build a comprehensive view of storage status that includes space savings, data protection, performance, and upgrade needs
    • Predictive Analytics: Optimize and proactively plan storage capacity through easy-to-understand graphical information

  • Nimble Storage takes a holistic approach to storage system health that increases uptime and maintains arrays in top working condition.

    Nimble arrays boast a rock solid and fully redundant design, and include an innovative, proactive support model that automatically resolves more than 80% of problems. Nimble solutions have achieved greater than “five nines” availability, the gold standard for system uptime.

  • Nimble Storage offers customer support that helps you get the most from your storage investment. As a Nimble customer, you can expect:
