Nimble Storage

Company Profile:

Nimble Storage is the technology leader in flash storage solutions.

The Power of One: A Single Storage Consolidation Platform: Most storage architectures were engineered to deliver just a single functional benefit: high performance or high capacity.

The Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash platform is transforming this land of storage silos.Enterprises can use a single architectural approach to cater dynamically to varying workloads’ needs for performance and capacity, as well as data protection.

Only Nimble offers the Power of One: gain the benefits of consolidation, without compromising the ability to deliver the service levels required for specific workloads.

IT organizations that use the Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash platform can predict, manage, and deliver the storage that is required to optimize applications and workloads across the enterprise.

By contrast, competitors’ flash storage offerings are either one-trick ponies or stubborn mules. Both have ravenous appetites.

  • Existing flash-only offerings deliver on raw performance, but are limited in their ability to linearly scale performance with capacity, both up and out. For mainstream enterprise applications that need performance and capacity, they are cost prohibitive. For performance-intensive applications, they are overkill for backup copies, application test and development, and disaster recovery copies. The result: storage silos that are constricted in scale and very costly.
  • Legacy hard disk architectures with flash added on as a tier are inefficient at simultaneously optimizing performance and capacity. They force IT to struggle and add costs to ensure that the right data is in the right tier at the right time. They also require complex data and storage management tools. The results: runaway operating and capital costs, spiraling complexity, and storage silo sprawl.

We change the paradigm. Only Nimble Storage offers customers the performance of flash and the capacity of disk, and ensures the ability to tailor SLAs to individual workloads, all from a single platform.

The Nimble Storage architecture gives enterprises the ability to efficiently scale performance and capacity non-disruptively from small to extremely large environments, and dramatically simplify management of the storage infrastructure. Our customers can realize the full potential of server virtualization, reduce costs, and gain greater business agility and responsiveness.

Strategic IT organizations deploy our platform to:

  • Reduce capital costs and TCO by consolidating storage silos onto a single storage architecture. IT uses fewer resources to meet application service levels, maximizing storage utilization
  • Scale performance and capacity without disruption, using our Scale-to-Fit architecture to scale up and scale out, enabling applications and users to be added on the fly
  • Improve IT productivity by reducing operational complexity and enabling IT to establish and meet SLAs for a multitude of workloads, all on a single system
  • Minimize risk and assure business continuity by providing IT with real-time infrastructure monitoring and proactive alerts to preempt failures before they adversely impact SLAs

The Power of One brings customers unprecedented value.



Nimble Storage Brings Customers The Efficiency and Confidence to:

  • Optimize enterprise-wide applications and workloads on a single platform
  • Eliminate storage silos and their associated cost, complexity, and risk
  • Have fully integrated data protection, enterprise-grade reliability, and cloud-connected management
  • Scale performance and capacity, independently within a dramatically smaller footprint
  • Achieve cost savings by not wasting staff time and over provisioning SSDs or HDDs
  • Innovate and proactively respond to changing business requirements




CS-Series Arrays

Nimble Storage CS-Series Arrays: Building Blocks of the Adaptive Flash Platform

Nimble Storage CS-Series arrays are the building blocks of Adaptive Flash, a storage platform that dynamically and intelligently allocates storage resources to satisfy the changing needs of business-critical applications. Adaptive Flash is based on CASL™, Nimble’s patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout architecture, and InfoSight™, its data sciences-based approach to the storage lifecycle. CASL allows performance and capacity to be scaled seamlessly and independently. InfoSight leverages the power of deep-data analytics to deploy storage resources as needed by business-critical applications.

High Performance Storage Products and Technical Specifications :

Nimble Storage CS-Series arrays are the building blocks of the Adaptive Flash platform. Nimble arrays deliver performance and capacity efficiency, seamless scalability and clustering, and feature integrated data protection, data sciences-based management, and support.

CS210*, CS215*, and CS235

Value and performance for small to medium-sized IT organizations or remote offices, for workloads such as Microsoft Exchange and VDI.


Ideal for midsize IT organizations or distributed sites of larger organizations. It offers the best capacity per $ for workloads like Microsoft applications, VDI, or virtual server consolidation. The CS300 delivers 1.6x more IOPS than the CS235.


Advanced performance for larger-scale deployments or IO-intensive workloads, like larger-scale VDI, and Oracle or SQL Server databases, and provides the best performance and IOPS per $. The CS500 achieves 5x the performance of the CS235.


Designed for consolidating multiple large-scale critical applications with aggressive performance demands. It delivers approximately 7x the IOPS of the CS235.

All Nimble Storage arrays support the iSCSI storage protocol. Fibre Channel protocol support is available with the CS235, CS300, CS500, and CS700.

*Support for iSCSI protocol only.
