About Nimble Storage
Nimble Storage was founded by a team of industry veterans who developed groundbreaking primary storage and deduplication architectures at several market-leading storage companies. Their experience has given Nimble a unique perspective to solving the industry's most pressing storage issues: reining in storage complexity, reducing costs, and implementing affordable backup and recovery.
The Nimble approach is based on the concept of converged storage, backup, and disaster recovery. It replaces an enterprise's expensive high-RPM drives with a hybrid architecture that combines high-performance flash memory with low-cost, high-density SATA drives. And by deploying a second Nimble array in an off-site location, enterprises of any size can now obtain a complete, cost-effective data protection solution incorporating WAN-efficient primary-to-primary replication.
About Nimble Storage Products & Solutions
Nimble solutions are built to eliminate the compromise among performance, capacity, ease of use, and price. Nimble's patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) is the first storage architecture designed from the ground up to seamlessly integrate SSDs with high-capacity disks, delivering affordable performance, integrated backup and disaster recovery, and stress-free operations.
Nimble Storage CS-Series arrays are available in multiple configurations. Each provides primary storage, plus cost-effective capacity to store snapshot-based backups for several months. The primary/backup split is flexible and fully configurable.
Nimble CASL Architecture
CS-Series iSCSI arrays are built on Nimble's breakthrough Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) architecture. Here's how CASL works:
Inline Compression: Un-like existing architectures that store data as fixed-size blocks, Nimble CASL stores data as variable size blocks, enabling real time 2-4x data compression with no added latency.
Optimized Data Layout: A copy of active hot data is held in flash memory, enabling fast reads, while all data is stored in cost effective, high capacity disk. Data is laid out sequentially, enabling fast writes to flash and disk.
Intelligent Index: CASL's intelligent index automatically tracks hot data blocks and instantly responds to workload changes.
Instant, Integrated Backups: 60-90 days of compressed, incremental, snapshots are captured on high-capacity disk at preconfigured intervals. The snapshots are highly space efficient, and have zero performance impact on application performance, allowing frequent recovery points.
Efficient Offsite Replication: Compressed block level changes are copied to a remote Nimble array for cost-effective disaster recovery.
