"Nimble Storage Simplifies Storage"

What do you like best?

Nimble has made the process of managing a storage environment possible for even the novice. I like the web interface they provide as well as their infosight product which really goes above and beyond what they would really have to offer.

What do you dislike?

Thus far, I haven't disliked anything. I feel they are leaps and bounds ahead of many of the competitors.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Purchase price was great and actually cheaper than most competitors but yet I felt like the product was better put together and further along than most of the others.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to upgrade our storage to something faster as well as expand the amount of storage available to us. We did all of this without any disruption to the end users. The process was laid out well in their documentation as well as their support team being excellent. I have been nothing but impressed with their support team. I've opened up low priority tickets before and have had them solved within a couple of hours and the support contacts have always been nothing short of amazing when working on even my simple problems.

"Predictive Storage"

What do you like best?

The predictive memory caching really helps in our environment, snapshots encryption and replication for DR were all important factors in the decision making process so as Nimble has all of these features it was easy to select the product.

What do you dislike?

Not much, it's a good product that works well. My only gripe is that before the HPE takeover I found the support to be more helpful, I guess this is because they were only Nimble storage engineers and now that it has been merged into HPE the support guys have to support more than one product but I'm sure in time there subject matter will improve.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you use the sizing tools to appropriately size your environment

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helping us speed up SQL performance and generating reports quickly saves the business time, and you know what time equals, money! So the powers that be are very happy with this result. Of course DR is also a big concern for them and they are now happy that our DR plan is sufficient.

""HPE Nimble Storage" - Great Solution with high flexibility"

What do you like best?

I like how Nimble uses flash storage and provide different types of flash arrays.Nimble has made the process of managing a storage environment possible for even the novice. The ability to distribute the storage to a number of different categories is very quickly.

What do you dislike?

The purchase price was great and actually cheaper than most competitors but yet I felt like the product was better put together and further along than most of the others.Latency is almost always going to be because of a saturated cache if storage is your bottleneck.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very easy to implement

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The process was laid out well in their documentation as well as their support team is excellent.We looked at other options, but the performance gains from going with Nimble largely impacted our choice.I've opened up low priority tickets before and have had them solved within a couple of hours.

"Fast and reliable"

What do you like best?

I like how Nimble uses flash storage. The virtual machines I have residing on our Nimble preform disk writes cleanly and quickly.

What do you dislike?

It is expensive. While the price tag is a lot to swallow, the benefits will eventually outweigh the cost.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If budget allows, even though it is a more expensive option, I highly recommend going this route vs. other competitors.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem we needed to solve was a simple one. "What is going to house the data we write to our virtual machines?" We looked at other options, but the performance gains from going with Nimble largely impacted our choice.
