Product and Technical Specifications

Nimble Storage Hybrid ArrayNimble Storage systems provide a highly available, redundant controller design that can non-disruptively scale to fit your storage performance and capacity requirements.

From high-IOPS environments like VDI to high-capacity applications like SharePoint or Exchange, Nimble Storage arrays provide adaptive performance for all mainstream business applications and environments, including Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server, Oracle, virtual server infrastructure (VDI), and server virtualization.

Nimble Storage features two product lines:

  • The CS200 Series is ideal for midsize IT organizations or distributed sites of larger organizations, supporting workloads such as Microsoft applications, VDI, or virtual server consolidation.
  • The CS400 Series delivers higher performance and is ideal for larger-scale deployments or IO-intensive workloads, such as larger-scale VDI or transaction processing supported by Oracle or SQL Server.

Notes
1. The CS420 model is available in CS420-X2, CS420-X4, and CS420-X8 options only.
2. Raw and effective capacities are calculated using Base 10 (i.e., 1 TB = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes) after excluding space for parity, spares, and system overhead; the range represents 0 to 2x compression.
3. Maximum capacity is the capacity of the base array and maximum number of expansion shelves
