Very quickly we realized we hadenough performance headroom to consolidate our very demandingExchange 2010 deployment on the same array.”–Ron Kanter, IT Director, Berkeley Research Group―With Nimble, we were able to run 3 snapshot backups a day andreplicate offsite twice daily. Exchange users notice no performancedegradation. Backups take minutes, not hours. Snapshot backupsrequire very little space and are recoverable and mountable locally andremotely. A mailbox or Exchange system can be recovered in literally minutes.Best of all, we can regularly test our procedures for Disaster Recovery.‖–Lucas Clara, IT Director, Foster Pepper LLC
