Overall Satisfaction with HPE Nimble Storage

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.
  • Ease of implementation
  • High performance
  • Single pane management for multiple units.
  • CIFS/NFS
  • Positive - Storage for all VM's.
  • Negative - ROI was longer than other storage but performance gains justified the increase of time.
EMC - VNX E3500
The VNX management portal is not as simple to use. The support life-cycle of the VNX is also not as long. The features you get from Nimble are much better without having to pay for extra licenses.
Support was always provided well under the SLA window. The engineers were always knowledgeable and rarely had to escalate the issue to another tier.

Did HPE Nimble Storage live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of HPE Nimble Storage go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy HPE Nimble Storage again?

Yes

Small organizations with enough budget and are in a full refresh project where they can justify the cost. Organizations only going through a partial refresh may not be able to justify the cost or have all of the hardware (network for iSCSI) to support the requirements.
