HPE Nimble Storage Review

Replication is included with no need for additional licensing.

What is most valuable?

  • Easy-to-implement snapshot technology
  • Replication included with no need for additional licensing

How has it helped my organization?

In addition to exceptional performance and reliability, it covers, "for free", all the needs our primary backup system cannot provide due to costly licensing.

What needs improvement?

The product is near perfect, but there is always room for further development; maybe, more automation in snapshot management.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used Nimble Storage for about three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not had any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not had any scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is excellent.

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

We had multiple storage solutions that simply got to their EOL.

How was the initial setup?

Setup was relatively simple, even with the very first Bonjour installer.

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

Our last purchase took place three years ago. I cannot advise on today's market.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I joined the company after the decision has been made. An external IT provider assisted with making this decision.

What other advice do I have?

Nimble was pretty unique at the time with their new CASL architecture. There are many more products built on the same principles today on the market. So, as usual, shop around before making this strategic decision.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

CS460G-X2, CS240G
