Flash storage (SSD) has been deemed an essential part of today’s data center for its speed and high-performance. Despite this demand, the reality is that it’s only accessible to a small segment of the business population due to its high price tag. As a result, many companies are resorting to creating infrastructure silos to address storage capacity issues, thereby increasing complexity and sprawl, and sacrificing performance. Nimble Storage eliminates the need for these sacrifices by offering an Adaptive Flash platform solution.
How Adaptive Flash Works
Adaptive Flash is the first hybrid storage solution that uses the intelligent allocation of storage and computing resources to maximize efficiency and eliminate inefficient data silos. The application is based on Cache-Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL™) architecture, which allows the platform to be scaled seamlessly and independently to accommodate performance and capacity growth within a data center. This architectural design is complemented by a cloud-based management system, InfoSight™, to satisfy the fluctuating requirements of enterprise applications, eliminating the wasteful overprovisioning of storage resources. Together, these features help make Adaptive Flash the perfect solution for emerging businesses.
Advantages of Adaptive Flash
According to Nimble Storage, Adaptive Flash customers report a reduction up to 10x in data center footprint and an overall decrease in power and cooling requirements. They also experience up to 500K IOPS performance, and greater than five-nines level of system availability. As if that weren’t enough, Adaptive Flash provides these other benefits:
- Eliminates storage silos needed for varying application demands
- Seamlessly scales to deliver enterprise-class performance and capacity, within a dramatically smaller footprint
- Does away with disruptive forklift upgrades
- Comprehensively protects valuable IT assets
- Keeps storage infrastructure running at peak health with powerful, proactive analytics
