- Technical engineers
- Units are nice because its only one box, while, for example, ExtremIO was six units
- Setup was very easy because the software was user-friendly
Currently there's no deduplication, and I would like to see that. Also, it's still slower than flash storage.
The VDI is supposed to be smooth, but we still saw a little delay in typing and performing general work even though we didn’t put much load into it.
The controls are built into the unit, and I wouldn’t hesitate to scale it.
The tech support is great. Within a few minutes of pulling drives, someone calls or emails right away to check up.
It was very simple and fast. It only took three hours, including racking, to set everything up.
All the features are included in Nimble, so there's no need to pay for features later on.
We were looking for a VDI solution that gave the same performance as a desktop/laptop. We tested PureStorage and ExtremIO, but chose to do a PoC with Nimble because others who were already using it were so positive about it.
If you're not using it for VDI, it's also good for general storage.
