Scale to Fit

Scale-to-Fit: Scalable Performance and Capacity

With Nimble Storage’s Adaptive Flash platform, it is easy to accommodate application growth by scaling performance, capacity, or both—efficiently and non-disruptively. While the CASL architecture enables seamless, independent scaling, InfoSight’s powerful deep-data analytics deliver precise guidance on the optimal scaling approach to fit the requirements of critical applications.

With the Adaptive Flash platform, organizations can:

  • Flexibly scale flash to accommodate a wide variety of application working sets
  • Scale up performance by upgrading compute for greater throughput and IOPS
  • Scale capacity by adding additional HDDs or expansion shelves
  • Scale capacity and performance together by clustering any combination of Nimble Storage arrays


Nimble kept proving that it could exceed any performance targets we had ever achieved. Today, it is our one-stop storage shop. We have moved our entire storage operations to Nimble Storage.
