Nimble’s InfoSight – An #SFD12 Follow-up

Matt Leib reviews what he saw from Nimble Storage at last month’s Storage Field Day. He goes into what he really liked about their InfoSight solution. This allows collect information across environments and send it to a secure collective database. This allows you to quickly cross reference anomalies across environments to better diagnose problems. Overall, Matt came away really impressed.


Storage Field Day 12 – Day 2 Recap

Adam Bergh went to first first Storage Field Day this month. In this post, he gives some of his thoughts from day two of the event. He heard presentations from Nimble Storage, NetApp, and Datera.


Nimble Storage Gets Cloudy

Nimble Storage presented at Storage Field Day last week and talked about their block storage as a service called Nimble Cloud Volumes. Dan Frith wrote up his thoughts. Nimble Storage presented this as a compelling alternative to other block storage options, offering 6-9s of availability, and using a variety of public cloud partners for compute to avoid vendor lock-in. Dan likes what he saw, but wonders if this will be appealing to their existing customer base, or if this will be used to draw in new business.


Nimble, HPE and 20-Year Old Architectures

Chris Evans looks at the recently announced HPE acquisition plans for Nimble Storage. He looks at both companies positions in the storage market, and the challenges and opportunities the acquisition will enable. For Chris, the key to the overall storage market is to increase customer share on relatively thin margins. If nothing else, Chris sees Nimble Storage as a way for HPE to gracefully retire 3PAR and provide a competitive offering in the space.


HPE is buying Nimble Storage

Andrea Mauro wrote up a reaction to the announced plans for HPE to acquire Nimble Storage. Andrea thinks HPE already had a solid storage portfolio, so he found it very surprising. Ultimately he thinks the key to this acquisition might be Nimble’s non-storage products. This includes InfoSight and their Nimble Cloud Volumes. For Andrea, these seem to offer something that HPE currently doesn’t have in their portfolio.


Tech Field Day Extra VMworld 2016 Europe – Nimble Storage

After attending Tech Field Day Extra at VMworld Europe in October, Lino Telera gives an overview of Nimble Storage’s presentation. Nimble Storage’s application specific approach to storage creates profiles for each application, which define the application policy for the hypervisor or OS. All this matches with Lino’s view: Application is the king!
