HPE Nimble Storage Review

InfoSight gives us visibility for our capacity planning.

What is most valuable?

The single feature that is valuable is InfoSight and the visibility it gives us for our capacity planning.

How has it helped my organization?

It has allowed us to enhance the recovery and deployment of our infrastructure.

What needs improvement?

It would be beneficial for Nimble to have an NVVM and/or an all-flash solution.

Currently Nimble’s All Flash solution is SSD disk based. Nimble should investigate in having their All Flash Solution with NVM Ram (similar to HP) or memory storage similar to Violin Storage.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used Nimble Storage for four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not had issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The issue with scalability is that I can’t expand to more than six arrays with one controller.

How are customer service and technical support?

I give technical support 4.5/5.

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

The previous solution was very complex.

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

I would like to suggest a price reduction seeing that there are similar products in the market. The licensing should not be touched.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at HPE 3PAR and Dell EMC.

What other advice do I have?

If you don’t have a storage team, this product is right for you.
