26 Jun Nimble Storage proves popular choice for businesses
Sometimes, the difference between a highly successful organization and an average one is how well it has incorporated emerging technologies into its operations. Increasingly, strong IT planning holds the key for business success, and as such, companies must carefully consider which vendors to work with and which solutions are right for them. The right choices can have a measurable impact.
Nimble Storage recently noted that it is continuing to experience significant growth, with the firm's client base now totaling more than 1,500 enterprises. The leader in flash-optimized hybrid storage solutions explained its success to repeat sales and its innovative approach to storage. The milestone comes less than three years since the company first began shipping its products.
"We were attracted to Nimble Storage because they offered a comprehensive storage platform for our disaster recovery strategy, and a simplified pricing model that fit our budget," said Mark McKinnon, IT coordinator at Grand River Conservation Authority. "The strength behind the product is the efficient snapshot and replication capabilities. As a result of deploying the Nimble Storage solution, our backup window of 30 hours has been eliminated. The increase in performance over our existing storage platform and seamless integration into our existing infrastructure were an extra bonus."
Nimble noted that it has seen health growth across all major verticals, including industries such as government, healthcare and financial services. Suresh Vasudevan, CEO at Nimble Storage, explained that another reason so many sectors have embraced Nimble is its InfoSight offering, which is designed to quickly catch any potential issues and notify users. Vasudevan asserted that in many cases, InfoSight is able to determine problems before the customer is even aware of a situation, allowing them to seek fixes before any vulnerabilities become detrimental.
However, Nimble is not only being recognized by customers for its products and services. The IT leader was also recognized by AlwaysOn as an OnDemand Top 100 winner in the category for cloud infrastructure. Honorees were chosen on the basis of their innovative nature, media buzz, commercialization, market potential and stakeholder value.
Deploying top cloud storage solutions can be a challenge for some businesses, especially if they lack a strong in-house IT support team. However, this doesn't bar them from gaining a competitive edge with the help of top technologies. Using virtualization consulting services can be one way to find the right tools and make the most of any IT investments.
