High-Performance VDI

VDI offers centralized desktop management for global, distributed businesses. Unfortunately, traditional storage solutions simply can't handle VDI's I/O bursts, leaving users disappointed by their inconsistent performance. And, traditional storage is difficult to scale, forcing IT to bring down systems to add new users.

Nimble Storage's Adaptive Flash platform overcomes VDI's biggest challenges — at a price that makes sense for any business.

Deliver a superior VDI user experience.

VDI user experience Boot storms demand faster reads; steady state and maintenance operations call for rapid writes. Nimble's CASL™ architecture delivers both, leveraging flash for quicker reads, and a sequential hard-disk layout for speedier writes.

Take the guesswork out of scaling VDI.

Nimble arrays are designed to scale performance and capacity independently so organizations buy only the resources they need. And InfoSight™ can predict capacity and help eliminate performance bottlenecks — all at the click of a button.

Simplify management.

Simplify management Traditional storage requires separate silos for VDI, user data, and business-critical applications. Nimble consolidates them onto a single array, dramatically reducing management overhead.
