HPE Nimble Storage, we are using it for high relational database storage server devices. We have our own video calls & conference product, which we are using for the storage of Video conference product data. It can easily store a huge amount of data with high reliability and costing is quite better than other products in the market.

We added Nimble Storage part to replace Hitachi Storage solution which actually was the end of support life. The reason to buy Nimble storage was to expand our SAN and NAS requirement growing in our environment.

we use the HPE Nimble Hybrid storage to offload some of the non production Data from the ALL FLASH storage to Nimble. Since expanding the all flash storage is not a cost effective solution, we decided to migrate all the non production Data/VM's to a Hybrid storage this maintaining a same level of IOPS, Latency and Bandwidth. Making this decision not only helped us in reducing the cost, but also helped in a good ROI without compromising on the performance of the infrastructure

We are currently using HPE Nimble Storage for our primary and disaster recovery VMware datastores. These are setup as replication partners between our production site and our disaster recovery site to allow for quick and easy failover in the event of our production site becoming unavailable. Before using HPE Nimble Storage, we were relying on storing our backups in the cloud which would then require a long process to recover from in the event of a disaster.

We used two Nimble CS210 as storage across the whole organization. We were able to migrate 98% of our physical hardware to 2 Hyper-V clusters that were cross replicated between the Nimble units in two locations. By doing this, we had a snapshot solution for backups and cross replication for disaster recovery.

It is used as the primary and secondary Sans. I put it in 5 years ago and then last year we upgraded to an all-flash array with 2x the storage we had. It stored all the server virtual machines, and with the second one, it provided replication for all production high-level virtual machines.

Nimble is used as the core storage for our virtual infrastructure at two of our sites. The high availability and reliability of the hardware have meant that in the entire time we have been using it, we have never had any company downtime due to the Nimble storage. Due to the failover ability between the controllers, it also means that it can be kept up to date without needing to schedule in downtime each time, allowing us to be more secure.

We use Nimble Storage to host our CSV and shared volumes among our Microsoft Hyper-V Cluster Hosts. Each user at our company relies on it to serve data to them each day. When we first started considering a clustered approach virtual computer we needed to find something to host the VM's on such that they could be accessed by any clustered host and Nimble was the perfect solution for us.

We are using the HPE Nimble Storage array as our secondary (backup) storage array for the corporation. Alongside our backup software, we use the array and software to transfer nightly primary array data to the backup array in a fully hydrated system while utilizing their deduplication to improve storage retention.

We use it as our primary T1 storage to host our VM. We have 2 arrays in 2 different locations that replicate to one another for disaster recovery purposes. It's used by the whole organization. Snapshot and replication features along with integration to a lot of 3rd party apps have been very beneficial to our day to day operations.

The Nimble storage device is our primary source of network based storage. We house all of our virtual servers on this device which includes our test environment as well as our production environment. We noticed an enormous leap in ease of management as well as performance when comparing this device to our previous NetApp storage device.

We use our Nimble Storage as our primary production storage solution. We run our ERP and all other domain servers off of it and have excellent performance. We originally purchased it with 1 gig networking on the controllers to enable us to buy in at a cheaper price. We have now upgraded to 10 gig and also upgraded our ISCSI, switching back end to 10 gig as well and have seen a huge boost to throughput and a dive in latency seen by the VMs in Infosight's VM-Vision Logging. Sometimes a 75-80% drop in latency caused predominantly by our networking. It mostly addressed the issues we were having with our old EqualLogic Array with huge latency in the 45-150ms range.The inline de-duplication and compression technologies allowed us to buy small. The fact that the storage came with an A-shelf fully populated and B-shelf empty, we were able to populate that later on and grow the device without growing the footprint.

We are using Nimble for our high end applications run on VMware. It is used for all virtual machines running all company applications, citrix farms, sql servers, web applications, and file servers. The entire organization uses it. We consider it our mission critical array to deliver availability and performance.

We are using HPE Nimble Storage for all of our production VMs. The VM infrastructures touch the whole organization and we are very happy with the decision we made to go down this road. We were looking for improved performance for our VMs and with the Flash storage Nimble offered we are enjoying quick and responsive experiences.

Our entire storage infrastructure is on Nimble arrays. We have multiple at our HQ as well as remote arrays that we replicate to at our branch offices. If the data is not on the cloud (40% of our data) then it resides on Nimble.

Our HPE Nimble SAN is the core storage backend for our virtualization infrastructure. This allows us to leverage VMware cluster capabilities for high availability. We have utilized Nimble for the last 4 years and it is our only storage solution for the entire organization. It provides a self tuning "set it and forget it" storage for our growing enterprise.

We are using HPE Nimble Storage arrays in our VMware environment hosting all our VM Servers. The entire organization has access to the server farm as end users and I manage Nimble and the associated devices. We have 2 HPE Nimble Storage with replication configured.

We are currently servicing our entire VMware workload using Nimble Storage, including production systems as well as development and testing. The Nimble solution replaced a scale computing storage cluster we had for 5 years, and the difference is night and day. Everything in our environment is now instant, automatic, and reliable.

We use Nimble Storage to support our main data center VMWare environment. This main data center contains Exchange, Sharepoint and our ERP systems, as well some various other tier 2 applications and test environments. The majority of our user base uses these applications on a daily basis. We bought this Nimble unit to replace a EMC unit mostly due to differences in cost.

Nimble Storage is our primary SAN device for hosting Windows servers and a few management Linux machines. We use VMWare hosts with Nimble. We use Nimble to host internal AD servers, websites and storage servers. The entire organization has access to the server farm as end users. I manage Nimble and the associated devices.

We use Nimble Storage for all of our data storage needs. We have 155 virtual servers running off of our array. We have Cisco UCS blades running our hosts that connect to Nimble Storage. Our Nimble has 2 10GB network ports that we have aggregated on each controller. We are getting 20GBs network throughput. On average we are using about 3,000 IOPS, but our system can handle around 21,000 IOPS according to our tests. Our SQL servers all run on Nimble Storage. They are fast.
