Introducing Nimble Storage All-Flash Arrays

The HPE Nimble Storage platform leverages flash storage and the power of predictive analytics to deliver fast and reliable access to data. This approach closes the app-data gap and radically simplifies operations. HPE InfoSight predictive analytics predict and prevent issues with guaranteed 99.9999% availability.

Utilize a single multicloud architecture to flexibly deploy workloads on flash arrays, converged infrastructure, and the public cloud. As part of the HPE Nimble Storage platform, All Flash storage arrays combine flash performance with radical simplicity for a wide variety of performance sensitive workloads. All Flash Arrays are cloud-ready – providing an easy on-ramp to the cloud through HPE Cloud Volumes. Backed by our Timeless Storage guarantee.

All Flash Arrays allow you to start small and scale-out to over 8PB effective capacity, assuming 5:1 data reduction. HPE Nimble Storage All Flash Arrays feature HPE InfoSight predictive analytics to predict and prevent issues across the infrastructure stack. Even the most complex issues are rapidly resolved because HPE InfoSight has already collected the necessary information to solve the problem, removing the need for complex troubleshooting. As a result, traditional level 1 and 2 support staff is completely automated. The HPE Nimble Storage support organization is entirely comprised of level 3 experts who answer calls in less than a minute on average.

• Speed and efficiency for mixed workloads with sub-millisecond response
• Write to cost-optimized disk at flash speeds through write serialization
• Dynamic flash caching accelerates reads even as workloads change in real time
• Always-on data reduction delivers up to 5X space savings without performance penalty
• Absolute Resiliency 99.9999% (six-nines) guaranteed availability
• Triple+ Parity RAID tolerates 3 simultaneous drive failures plus additional protection through intra-drive parity
