HPE Nimble Storage Review

Good support but the scalability needs improvement


What is our primary use case?

We use HPE Nimble Storage for general purposes, not for high performance, just for archiving and backup solutions.

What is most valuable?

It is easy to use. Not too complicated.

What needs improvement?

The scalability could be better.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with HPE Nimble Storage for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have no issues with the stability of this solution, it's stable enough.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

HPE Nimble Storage does not scale well. It needs improvement.

We have 50 users in our organization who are using it.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good. I would rate the support a nine out of ten.

How was the initial setup?

The installation is straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We had the help of HP and other consultants, it took two days to install and deploy this solution.

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

We pay a one-time fee for terabyte licenses, and the support is paid yearly.

There are costs in addition to the licensing fee, but it's included in the hardware.

What other advice do I have?

My recommendation of this solution would depend on who is interested in using it, and what the purpose of using it would be.

I would rate HPE Nimble Storage a six out of ten.
