- Easy-to-implement snapshot technology
- Replication included with no need for additional licensing
In addition to exceptional performance and reliability, it covers, "for free", all the needs our primary backup system cannot provide due to costly licensing.
The product is near perfect, but there is always room for further development; maybe, more automation in snapshot management.
I have used Nimble Storage for about three years.
We have not had any stability issues.
We have not had any scalability issues.
Technical support is excellent.
We had multiple storage solutions that simply got to their EOL.
Setup was relatively simple, even with the very first Bonjour installer.
Our last purchase took place three years ago. I cannot advise on today's market.
I joined the company after the decision has been made. An external IT provider assisted with making this decision.
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.
