When we had issues due to a bad Postgres database, Nimble was very helpful and even replaced the array with a brand new one for our troubles.

What is our primary use case?

Nimble storage is our primary Production storage vendor. We use this with VMware on a daily basis including a new AFA5000 all flash array for our DMS system.

Pros and Cons

  • "InfoSight - analytics sight that collects data for all Nimble arrays deployed"
  • "We have had some stability issues with one array which has happened twice during subsequent software updates but is due to a bad Postgres database."

What other advice do I have?

Given the chance to evaluate Nimble it is highly recommended. Their CASL architecture is very fast and being able to get the performance from spinning disk that you see on some flash arrays is great. They are always improving the product and software including the recent changes to the InfoSight web page that allows Per-VM monitoring now. Excellent support and customer service when you need it.

Flexible with good restore functionality and excellent technical support

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for recovery and backup purposes.

Pros and Cons

  • "The flexibility is the most advantageous aspect of the solution. Our system has a very big environment. Due to this, the replication and backup operation is not an easy task. We prefer HPE SimpliVity modules in our environment, even when we have some different cases in operations."
  • "The solution needs to add NFS features."

What other advice do I have?

Most of our landscape is HPE products at the moment. We also have an EMC Backup Appliance in our environment. Currently, we have HPE Blade in our environment. We are thinking of changing all of these products. At the end of this year, we'll probably target HPE Synergy Systems hardware in our environment. Some of the projects require unified storage on our environment due to this. We prefer a storage model, like EMC. Currently, we also use the HPE Converged Systems. We have SimpliVity nodes in our environment. We use these nodes for most systems, but we are currently having some difficulties in…

One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is Nimble Storage vs Pure Storage.


One user says about Nimble Storage, "InfoSight, Nimble snapshotting and replications, as well as the zero-byte cloning, are invaluable to us as a company and has greatly improved our offerings to clients over our previous storage vendor." 


Another user says about Pure Storage, "The most valuable features are extremely low latency, high IOPS with VMware, inline deduplication and compression. We liked the non-disruptive downgrade from FA-420 (POC) to FA-405 in production and the non-disruptive upgrade from FA-405 to M20."

I have heard from our HPE Storage representatives that this product is going end of life. I have heard that in the past and it turned out that the version was EOL and they released a new version. I think the reps just want us quoting and selling more Nimble storage. I asked for them to send me documentation stating that it is EOL and have received nothing. 


We love this software, it works really well. The adaptive optimization is a really great feature to get more IOPS.
