SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 --  Nimble Storage (NYSE:
NMBL), the flash storage solutions company, today announced it has
been recognized as one of 2014's hottest emerging technology vendors
by CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT
channel. The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming
technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products,
creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to
create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers.  
Nimble's channel-centric model continues to be a key driver of the
company's growth and has successfully launched within several new
regions, including Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia and
throughout EMEA. Nimble launched a two-tier distribution model in
North America, successfully transitioning 100 percent of all
resellers to purchase through distribution. Additionally, in an
effort to provide partners with a strong understanding of Nimble's
Adaptive Flash platform the company launched Nimble Sales
Professional (NSP), a self-paced, online course available to all
resellers free of charge. To date, more than 1,200 individuals have
completed the course. 
Nimble Storage has developed the Adaptive Flash platform that is
engineered to provide organizations with the highest levels of
performance efficiently. Along with integrated data protection and
predictive support, enterprise customers can deploy confidently and
seamlessly scale their storage infrastructure as their business
grows. The company's flash storage solutions are based on its
patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL(TM)) storage
architecture that leverages fast read performance of flash and the
cost-effective capacity of hard disk drives, and Nimble InfoSight, an
automated cloud-based management and support system that maintains
storage system peak health. 
"The varying performance and capacity requirements of applications
underscores the demand for a modern storage solution that has been
purpose-built to address the needs of large organizations," said Mike
Munoz, vice president of worldwide sales. "Our channel partners play
an integral role in reaching the enterprise market and we are
laser-focused on not only building deeper engagement and enablement
with them, but also on enhancing the level of training and support
our ecosystem of over 1,000 partners receives. Our channel-centric
model continues to be a key driver of Nimble's growth, and we are
honored to be recognized by CRN."  
"Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big
technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their
customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on
the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services
that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition," said
Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. "We
congratulate 2014's Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of
technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening
the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel."
