HPE Nimble Storage Review

Good performance and processor, with a good support system for assistance

What is our primary use case?

We are resellers. We provide products to our customers.

Unfortunately, we were not able to sell this product because it is too expensive. We use it in our own cloud. We created a VMware VCPP cloud to provide VMware services to our enterprise customers.

What is most valuable?

The performance and the processor are good.

HPE has very good technology in terms of storage, and they have very good support assistance.

What needs improvement?

The problem is the price. It needs to be improved.

I would like to see an added feature to auto-fix, or a dynamic alerting system on storage. This is very important because we would like to prevent a disk failure before it happens.

If we had some sort of AI in place to alert us then we could replace the disk before it occurs.

Also, we would like to receive alerts if space is over the limits. This is necessary for us.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been selling HPE Nimble Storage for a few months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a scalable product. We have one POC user in our organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good. HPE has a good channel system in Taiwan.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we used Dell.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Nimble Storage is too expensive for our enterprise customers.

What other advice do I have?

We are still trying other products. HPE GreenLake has very nice packaging. It's a financial program, and we used Nimble through this financing program. We didn't purchase it, we were testing. 

We are still testing other products, such as Dell Storage.

We have some local storage vendors, so we are not formally using it in production.

We are not able to recommend this product as we are still in the testing phase. We are still doing the POC tests.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
