Nimble Storage to Participate at Data Storage Innovation Conference  Customers to Share Real-World Experiences Using Flash-Optimized Storage to Increase Efficiency of IT Environments  SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/21/14 --  Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), a leading provider of flash-optimized hybrid storage solutions, today announced it will participate in SNIA's inaugural Data Storage Innovation Conference, taking place April 22-24 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Santa Clara, Calif. At the conference two Nimble Storage customers, the KIPP Foundation and Grand River Conservation Authority, will share proven strategies for managing modern storage environments.   The Data Storage Innovation Conference, hosted by The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), is a gathering of decision-makers, technology enthusiasts and those responsible for implementing and supporting storage technologies. Sessions will provide insights on new technologies in areas such as software defined storage, cloud and big data.  Nimble Storage's flash storage solutions are engineered to address the enterprises' most pressing storage issues, delivering better performance and capacity at a reasonable price, providing integrated protection with rapid backup and recovery and, reining in storage complexity. Based on its patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) architecture, Nimble Storage leverages the fast read performance of flash and the cost-effective capacity of hard disk drives. Nimble Storage combines this flash-optimized architecture with Nimble InfoSight, a cloud based management service that delivers predictive support and operational simplicity through deep data analytics.  Conference-goers can learn more about Nimble Storage by attending the following sessions:  Reducing Backup Windows and Increasing Performance When Data Reaches the Terabyte Range      --  Who: Mark McKinnon, Grand River Conservation Authority --  When: Tuesday, April 22 at 2:00 p.m. --  What: The Grand River Conservation Authority is one of the largest     watershed management agencies in Canada, managing water and natural     resources for nearly 40 municipalities and close to a million     residents. When databases reached the terabyte range, the organization     experienced difficulty meeting required 24-hour backup windows. GRCA     had been through four purchasing cycles, including a disk-to-tape     backup and a disk-to-disk-to-tape solution and still couldn't meet     designated backup windows. After calculating a deficit of over     $400,000 in productivity if one month's data was lost, they knew it     was time to solve their backup and recovery problems, leading them to     deploy a flash-optimized storage solution which allowed GRCA to reduce     RPO from 1 day to 1 hour, but also reduce backup windows, eliminate     tapes and store 6+ years of file shares.     Turning a High-wire Juggling Act into a Walk in the Park: Best Practices for Simple, Effective Storage Management      --  Who: Lavan Jeeva, KIPP Foundation --  When: Thursday, April 24 at 3:05 p.m. --  What: When your responsibilities as a hands-on IT professional span     multiple layers of datacenter infrastructure and critical applications     the last thing you need is to be constantly tied up in the often     precarious act of manual storage performance, capacity and data     protection management. Storage is undoubtedly the most critical layer     of infrastructure for today's datacenter workloads. With the right     storage solution, sizing, deployment, management, scaling and disaster     recovery these workloads should be easily handled.
