    • Transforming your Datacenter with Nimble Storage Phil Davies, Senior Systems Engineer, UKI George Bonser, Sales, UKI @NimbleStorage© 2012 Nimble Storage. Proprietary and confidential. Do not distribute.
    • Why? Why did you build it? What did our Founders have in mind? “We wanted to create the first solution to solve the capacity problem and performance problem in the same storage system”. “This was the foundation of why we started the design”. This enables us to collapse primary storage and backup storage on the same storage platform. Cost Effective - We’ve figured out a way to use CPU, Flash, & SATA to provide high performance, high density, low cost per IOP and low cost per GB at the same time in the same solution.© 2012 Nimble Storage.

    • Transformation in Storage Models with Flash LEGACY MODERN Flash in Server Monolithic Real-Time Analytics All-Flash Arrays NEED FOR FLASH Mainstream Applications OLTP VDI Hybrid Modular Flash-Optimized SQL Server SharePoint Exchange Web/File/Print Tape, High- Archives Cloud Capacity Disk Efficient hybrid systems that can flexibly vary flash and disk to address all mainstream needs.© 2012 Nimble Storage.
