Nimble Storage Redefines Enterprise Storage Management Experience with InfoSight



New VM-level Monitoring Capabilities Enable Enterprise IT Organizations to Proactively Resolve Resource Contention Issues

SINGAPORE, June 26, 2015 - (ACN Newswire) - Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), the flash storage solutions company, today announced that it is redefining the enterprise storage management experience with InfoSight, the company's cloud-connected management and support engine that leverages actionable intelligence through the power of sophisticated data sciences. Integral to the Nimble Adaptive Flash platform, InfoSight simplifies management and support with intelligent, analytics-driven automation to preempt issues, maintain storage health and manage growth. With the addition of VM-level monitoring capabilities, InfoSight now provides granular visibility into VMware virtual machine environments, enabling enterprise IT organizations to rapidly resolve resource contention issues and optimize performance.

"Our previous legacy storage solution had us caught in a juggling act when managing our VMs," said Steven Jackson, IT manager at QUMU, a business video platform provider. "The only way my team and I could keep pace with our organization's changing needs was to turn certain VMs on and off to free up IOPS because it was so resource-constrained and severely limited in terms of scalability. InfoSight completely changed our storage management practices by providing full visibility into VM resource consumption, and a single performance dashboard that gives me an instant heads-up when upgrades are imminent. The intelligence behind InfoSight provides all the justification executive management needs to sign off on storage upgrades or expansion."

Enterprise IT organizations must contend with a number of challenges when it comes to harnessing data growth, while adhering to service level agreements. Adding to these challenges, various aspects of the storage lifecycle management remain reactive, error-prone processes that can lead to downtime or loss in revenue. In contrast to disparate legacy storage management frameworks and tools that generate an abundance of raw data, but aren't able to synthesize the information into an easily consumable, actionable format, InfoSight integrates, automates, and substantially simplifies storage administrative tasks, ensuring the optimal health of all Nimble Storage arrays.

The InfoSight deep data analytics engine captures and analyzes over 30 million data points collected daily from each one of the thousands of installed-base Adaptive Flash storage arrays to provide comprehensive intelligence into overall storage infrastructure health. InfoSight automatically opens 90 percent of all support cases, and generates resolutions for over 80 percent of them, saving customers the time and effort of having to drive manual support processes. InfoSight provides intelligent, actionable recommendations to IT organizations on how best to scale storage resources in alignment with changing requirements, all of which is easily accessible from any laptop computer via a single cloud-connected interface.

"We initially chose to go with Nimble's Adaptive Flash arrays over an expensive upgrade to our existing SAN because it offered far better scalability and was a better fit for our overall cost model. InfoSight proved to be an equally substantial value to us with the time it saves our IT team," said Alexander Lawrence, Lead System Administrator at Pacific Lutheran University. "At any given time, we're working on a number of different projects in support of our faculty and students. Gaining both automation and granular visibility into our environment allow us meet end user demands. Both InfoSight and the Nimble arrays fit extremely well with our needs."

Going Beyond Storage Management with VM-Level Monitoring

The addition of VM-level monitoring and functionality extends the capabilities of InfoSight to provide a granular view and proactive way to manage the provisioning of storage resources across enterprise VMware environments. With this enhancement, enterprise IT organizations have the ability to optimize workload performance and proactively identify, and allocate resources to address, performance bottlenecks before issues can impact service level agreements. Having the ability to proactively optimize individual virtual machines helps administrators to mitigate common pain points that can play havoc with resources in dense storage environments.

"With added VM-level monitoring and capabilities, we are able to provide customers a breakthrough platform that gives them complete visibility and control over their storage environments and associated resources," said Radhika Krishnan, vice president of Product Marketing and Alliances, Nimble Storage. "Customers who had been utilizing legacy solutions had to navigate disparate management frameworks, tools and interfaces to identify and attempt to resolve potential issues. InfoSight takes the guesswork out of the equation for organizations looking to manage and forecast growth and realize tangible ROI."

Two Nimble Storage customers, Xtium and Pacific Lutheran University, will join Howard Marks, an industry analyst and chief scientist at DeepStorage LLC, for an in-depth discussion examining the ways in which the storage experience needs to be redefined, and how Nimble InfoSight dramatically simplifies the entire storage lifecycle for customers.
