Nimble Storage Announces Broad Range of New Enterprise-Grade Capabilities to the Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash Platform
Jul 15 15
Nimble Storage announced a broad range of new enterprise-grade capabilities to the Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash platform that enable enterprise IT organizations to dynamically meet varying service level agreements, reduce costs, and gain greater business agility and responsiveness. Advancements to the Adaptive Flash platform include the ability to deliver an all-flash service level for applications with stringent requirements around responsiveness, an auto-flash service level for mainstream applications, and a disk-only service level for applications requiring low-cost capacity, all within a single storage platform. Additional capabilities announced include software-based encryption and a REST API-based extensibility framework. All of the new features complement existing enterprise functionality, including granular VM-level monitoring and reporting and integrated data protection. Unlike legacy and flash-only storage architectures and systems that are deployed in disparate storage silos to support applications based on their unique characteristics and requirements, the Nimble Adaptive Flash platform offers a single storage architecture that dynamically caters to the needs of enterprise - wide workloads across performance, capacity, and data protection - delivering on the full potential and benefits of storage consolidation. Now with software-based encryption, Nimble SmartSecure, storage administrators have the ability to efficiently enable data encryption in consolidation and multi-tenant storage environments at no additional cost. This new software feature enables both encryption and shredding on a per-application or per-array level. SmartSecure does not require custom drivers or dedicated firmware to implement. Once data is compressed and encrypted by the company's CASL flash-optimized file system, it can be securely replicated to another site with the target site understanding the encryption key - dramatically streamlining administration and preserving storage capacity. In addition to increasing security benefits for large enterprises, SmartSecure encryption enables service providers with multi-tenant environments to isolate and encrypt a particular client's data. With the addition of REST APIs, the Nimble Adaptive Flash platform now enables storage administrators to build customized reporting and workflows around storage, simplifying integration into existing customer frameworks thereby enhancing enterprise IT productivity. The Nimble Adaptive Flash platform enables enterprise IT organizations to seamlessly scale performance and capacity independently. With the latest software release, Nimble now enables administrators to scale non-disruptively to over 3.5PBs of capacity and over 160TBs of flash per cluster to optimize business-critical workloads at scale while maintaining the high levels of responsiveness. Nimble InfoSight, the company's cloud-connected management and support engine, provides granular visibility into VM, network and LUN latencies enabling administrators to quickly and confidently identify and resolve resource contention issues and maintain service level agreements. The new per-VM monitoring feature, InfoSight-VMVision, intuitively flags conditions that may cause performance issues showing throughput, IOPs, and latency levels across all layers: host, network and storage. Armed with actionable intelligence, administrators can proactively identify and address rogue or "noisy neighbor" VMs that consume more than their fair share of infrastructure resources. Nimble InfoSight-VMVision enables administrators to tune performance and eliminate bottlenecks without reactively making additional capital expenditures that aren't required, further lowering costs and improving IT productivity.
