What HPE Gets With Nimble Storage

Nimble Storage is a provider of both all-flash storage and hybrid flash storage products. Hybrid storage refers to arrays that offer a combination of flash and spinning disk capacities which in theory offer nearly the performance of all-flash storage but take advantage of disk capacity for lower cost. In practice, however, the cost-per-gigabyte of all-flash storage is almost on-par with that of disk-based storage, which is causing a collapse in the sales of disk-based storage in general.

Nimble Storage also develops InfoSight, a predictive analytics technology for monitoring and managing storage capacity and uptime. The company claims InfoSight now ensures "six nines," or 99.9999 percent, availability for its storage. Nimble Storage last month also introduced Nimble Cloud Volumes, an enterprise-grade block solution that allows businesses to run data on-prem or in AWS or Azure without getting locked into any of them.
