Leveraging Nimble's partner ecosystem to reduce project risk

01 Dec 14

Flash storage solutions company Nimble Storage has been recognised as a visionary for general-purpose disk arrays by Gartner.

Authored by Stanley Zaffos, Roger W. Cox and Valdis Filks, Gartner’s report analyses providers of midrange, high-end and network-attached storage systems, and hybrid arrays.

Nimble says it remains focused on its mission to provide the industry’s most efficient storage platform.  Earlier this year, Nimble launched its Adaptive Flash platform, comprising the CASL file system and InfoSight cloud-based management, enabling IT organisations to predict, manage and deliver the storage required to optimise business applications and workloads across the enterprise.

“Our founding thesis was that traditional enterprise storage architectures will be upended by flash-optimised architectures and that cloud-based management will upend traditional approaches to storage management,” says Suresh Vasudevan, CEO, Nimble Storage.

“We’ve built our storage platform from the ground up to address the most pressing demands of enterprise workloads, and will continue to disrupt legacy vendors in the space with our innovative technology”.

Nimble is leveraging its partner ecosystem to deliver advanced converged infrastructure solutions. Through its alliance with Cisco, Nimble says more than 450 joint customers have successfully deployed differentiated solutions tailored to address their unique requirements.

Customers leverage Nimble’s converged infrastructure solution, SmartStack, built on Cisco UCS and pre-validated through ecosystem partners including Citrix, Microsoft, Oracle, and VMware, to speed application and workload deployments and reduce project risk.
