Storage vendors can make things very confusing. Raw capacity. Usable capacity. Effective capacity. And then there’s deduplication, compression, Zero copy clones and more. But at the end of the day…
… all you should care about is how much capacity is available for your applications. This is what’s called “effective capacity”.
That’s why we challenge you to find ANY All Flash array that gives you more effective capacity for a given amount of raw capacity.
Go ahead, we dare you to check us out.
Right off the bat, Nimble achieves 20% more usable space than other competitors through an innovative filesystem that includes Triple+ Parity RAID integrated data protection and advanced flash endurance management – all with less overhead.
That’s the efficiency of our CASL file system.
Inline variable block deduplication
Inline variable block data compression
Zero copy clones
All working together to save you space and money
Our data reduction continues to perform when it’s most needed. So unlike other All Flash arrays, we don’t turn it off to keep up with the heaviest write workloads.
