  • Nimble Logo

    Nimble-CS-front

    Nimble Storage’s Adaptive Flash platform is the first storage solution to eliminate the flash performance and capacity tradeoff.

    The Adaptive Flash platform is based on Nimble’sCASL™ architecture, and InfoSight™, the company’s data sciences-based approach to the storage lifecycle.

    Nimble-Virtual-IT-Storage-LifeCycle

    • Flexible scaling of storage resources to satisfy the changing demands of business-critical applications
    • Five times greater performance and capacity density than legacy storage systems
    • Up to a 75% reduction in data footprint, and a 10x reduction in datacenter rack space
    • Non-disruptive and independent scaling of performance and capacity, within a single array or a cluster
    • As many as 90 days of hourly snapshots on a single array
    • WAN-efficient replication of snapshot data for disaster recovery
    • Peak storage health driven by powerful data sciences
    • Greater than five nines system uptime

    Nimble Storage CS-Series arrays are the building blocks of the Adaptive Flash platform. Nimble arrays deliver performance and capacity efficiency, seamless scalability and clustering, and feature integrated data protection, data sciences-based management, and support.

    • 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.
