Nimble Storage Announces New Performance Analytics Capabilities Within InfoSight(TM)

Nimble Storage Announces New Performance Analytics Capabilities Within 
Channel Partners Empowered to Be Trusted Advisors by Obtaining Deeper
Visibility Into End User Storage Environments 
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 --  Nimble Storage (NYSE:
NMBL), a leading provider of flash-optimized hybrid storage
solutions, today announced new performance analytics capabilities
within Nimble Storage InfoSight. These forensic capabilities are key
enhancements to the predictive analytics InfoSight has offered
providing real-time monitoring, reporting, forecasting and planning
capabilities to customers. With this deeper level of intelligence,
InfoSight eliminates the time-consuming, manual process of
determining how and where performance bottlenecks originate by
providing automatic diagnosis and correlation of leading factors
impacting performance or latency. As a result, customers are better
positioned to implement specific tasks in real-time to keep their
storage infrastructure running at peak health.  
InfoSight allows customers to obtain a holistic view of their storage
environment through its cloud-based data collection engine that
automatically collects comprehensive data around the overall health
of their storage, including performance, capacity, and data
protection. With this new automated correlation capability, systems
administrators are able to find the 'needle in a haystack' with a
deeper level of insight into the leading factors for performance
challenges, including details specific to host or network challenges,
flash to disk ratio, and CPU utilization. The ability to
automatically identify these challenges eliminates the days or weeks
spent with manual data collection and analyses and professional
services fees, while ensuring systems run at peak health. 
Channel Partners Obtain Deeper Visibility Into End User Storage
 Nimble Storage now allows customers to grant resellers
access to their InfoSight portal, the web-enabled interface that
provides a summary of each customer's capacity savings, protection
benefits, and downtime savings achieved. Access to the InfoSight
portal equips channel partners with a deeper level of intelligence
about end user environments as they are called upon to be trusted
advisors in the IT decision-making process. Nimble channel partners
are better positioned to proactively forecast aspects of customer
environments, such as array upgrades, cache expansion, and other
recommendations to keep their customer environments running smoothly. 
By obtaining a better understanding of end user environments,
partners are able to realize additional business and signal
opportunities to provide services based on the environment in real
The InfoSight capabilities described in this press release are
currently available to all Nimble Storage customers as part of their
support subscription package.

"Nimble Storage InfoSight provides Milliman with data analytics that
help us keep our systems running in top condition. The new

performance or latency issues, reducing the need for time-consuming

 - Dan McCurley, senior network
administrator, Milliman 
"We have always been impressed by the proactive nature of Nimble's
support, and that all begins with InfoSight. Its deep data analytics
and proactive alerting goes far beyond what the traditional vendors
have implemented in the past. And now with the ability to access our
customers' InfoSight portals, we can leverage that information to be
much more proactive with them moving forward. It's really about
strengthening the relationship with our customers above all else."
Chris Reep, account manager, High Point Networks 
"Developing long-term relationships with our customers is a top
priority for us. Having access to our customers' Nimble InfoSight
portal and the extensive data it provides allows us to be much more
proactive with our customers, giving them confidence in our
recommendations as to how to manage their Nimble infrastructure."
Grant Burns, solutions architect, Compudyne 
"Performance issues cost companies money, decrease employee
productivity and can affect customer relationships. The 'old school
way' of scouring through hundreds of data sets to identify an issue
is inefficient, and is just that -- old school. By automating this
process through InfoSight we are allowing customers to get back to
'business as usual' an order of magnitude faster than traditional
triage methods. In addition, end users will experience a new level of
customer service as their trusted channel partners gain access to
deeper insight into their current storage environment." 
 - Rod Bagg,
vice president of customer support, Nimble Storage
