Overall Satisfaction with HPE Nimble Storage

We currently use Nimble Storage as our primary storage for our local data center. We have a VMWare environment connected to it and run all types of servers on the storage.
  • Easy administration - - no special training needed.
  • Fast I/O for intense applications such as SQL Servers
  • Great snapshot technology, quick and integrates with VMWare and other software such as VMWare easily
  • Compression and deduplications saves lots of space.
  • It does what we need it to do.
  • Support cost dramatically reduced
  • SQL Server performance more than doubled compared to old storage
Nimble beat Dell and EMC in our bench test in every category including 5 year ROI.
HPE Nimble has worked great for our Windows and SQL Servers. For low usage SQL servers, you may have to pin items into cache so you don't experience slowdowns. If the box is sized correctly, it can handle most loads. It does not do great on data warehouse scenarios where large datasets get recreated daily.
