Data Centre Services Manager at a tech company with 201-500 employees
Feb 08 2017

What is most valuable?

* Nimble InfoSight is an extremely powerful and useful tool. We log in daily to look at any new alerts, mostly ones that have been cleared without us needing to do anything, as well as using it as a capacity management tool and executive... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We supply hourly (or more frequent) snapshots on our private hosted clients. Under the previous vendor’s arrays, there was large management overhead to keep these working. Since switching to Nimble arrays, we have not only been able to keep... more»

What needs improvement?

There is not a lot of room for improvement. All the items that we wanted to have implemented when we first started using Nimble arrays were either already on their road map, or added after listening to us, and all bar one have now been fully... more»

Senior Network and Infrastructure Manager at a legal firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
Jun 21 2017

What is most valuable?

InfoSight, for sure, has been the best feature so far.

What needs improvement?

I really would like to see synchronous replication. This is something that when we have multiple arrays in our environment and being able to do something like a zero RPO. Being a law firm, we really want our data to be protected all the time. Although, we are really rocking the Nimble snapshots and you'll hear them talk about the maximum snapshots that you can... more»

What is most valuable?

The built-in performance profiles have made tweaking settings for different uses (SQL log files, SQL data files, VMware datastores, etc.) extremely simple. The built-in profiles are more than enough for most implementations, and if you need... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The Nimble SANs, as part of an overall move from standalone servers to a combined virtual infrastructure, have allowed my client to be much more responsive to their clients. The client is a SaaS provider that does large analysis/predictive... more»

What needs improvement?

While I was not present for the sizing discussions, I believe there was some lack of discovery in selecting the model and features for my client. Even though the flash size on the array was doubled from Nimble's initial recommendation, the... more»

Vice President Tech Operations at Ten-X
Jun 21 2018

What is most valuable?

Our upgrades are seamless. Whether we're adding storage, or upgrading the software, we don't take an outage for those upgrades. Also, InfoSight does exactly what it needs to do. It tells us when we have problems and if we need to move things around. Mostly we use it for capacity planning so we can get the forecast of when we're going to be out of space and order... more»

What needs improvement?

The only thing that I can really compare Nimble to is all-flash because, right now, Nimble is a hybrid solution. I would like to see them come out with an all-flash alternative. I'd also like to see them incorporate tools that let me get granular with the VMs. I want to see an individual VM, I want to Snapshot and recover an individual VM. Those are the kind of... more»

Business Systems Manager at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
Dec 15 2016

What is most valuable?

* Support, it is superb! * InfoSight, especially VM Vision. * Easy of setup and management, no need for storage experts. * Performance, just delivers on all that it promises. * Maintenance price is fixed for 5 years.

How has it helped my organization?

We do not need to employ storage specialists to set up and manage our storage. InfoSight gives us in-depth knowledge to ensure our storage and associated systems are performing well, which is more than we could even get from previous storage... more»

What needs improvement?

Support for near synchronous replication. Currently the smallest snapshot window is 15 minutes, that means if we replicate data from one array to another array we will be up to 15 minutes out of date, this is the RPO. We have a small number... more»

What is most valuable?

Basically, InfoSight has been tremendous, together with the support process; the way it proactively sends communication back to the support center, the proactive dispatch of parts, I think has been impressive. InfoSight and the support model... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have changed quite a bit in multiple areas. One area is simplicity in technology, in the following ways: * The administrative overhead costs are less. * It has reduced our cost per unit dramatically and that is very important. * We are... more»

What needs improvement?

We are fairly happy with the product. I think most of it is definitely satisfying the requirements. But one area, for which we presented our feedback to Nimble, was how we can centralize, i.e., monitor the multiple arrays in a centralized... more»

What is most valuable?

Ease of installation, it's very easy to set up, to get up and running. It works well, I don't have any issues with it. Also, they have unparalleled customer support. You call in and you talk to a technician who knows what he's doing and can... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved our ability to deliver care to patients quickly. Our previous arrays, they were having a lot of slowness issues and that was impacting the way that our providers were giving patient care. It has really helped us keep up and... more»

What needs improvement?

The only thing I'm really looking for in my next array is some hyperconverged, so if they had something in that space... But I know they have SimpliVity so that is probably not going to happen.

What is most valuable?

InfoSight provides real-time reporting, it gives you information about your different volumes, how the arrays are being used, I/O, performance in general. That's where we find value in it as well.

How has it helped my organization?

Our organization functions very similarly to how it had operated prior to Nimble, but our applications are more responsive. The time it takes to produce some reports - specifically our year-end accounting reports which, sometimes, could take... more»

What needs improvement?

What I have seen so far has been sufficient for our needs.
