What is most valuable?

The in-line compression is awesome as well as the data loop, because we save somewhere around 80 terabytes capacity, but the actual usage was around 15/20 terabytes. Configurations are simple, even the API configurations. Nimble satisfies my requirements which is great.

What needs improvement?

They should include integration to the cloud like S3 bucket or the archiving part. The vehicle would be the backup solution. It would allow us to move some older, rarely used data to cloud.

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

I previously used Dell EMC VNX 5700. I think Nimble is better because it's a dHCI, hyper-converged box and Dell is not a hyper-converged box. You have your controls and VA is separate.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution. Definitely from a price perspective it's quite expensive, but looking at the performance and the support system that we have with HPE Nimble, it's really good. I would recommend it. I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.

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

We previously used an EMC server for storage, but we found that implementation was easier with Nimble DHCI.

What other advice do I have?

Be sure that your end-users understand and know what they want regarding the ILPS. Sometimes the configuration that they have is not appropriate for their needs and could be more efficient. It all… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated many products that are equivalent to Nimble, but because we are an evaluated retailer, it really depends on the end-user. When we receive a product, it is only a system, but we can take a… more »
