The storage you choose for Openstack deployments matters. The temptation is to use commodity storage with open source software, but the wrong choice will lead to waste, complexity and unplanned costs.
Nimble Storage Predictive Flash platform provides an Openstack Cinder driver and also enables flash storage for Swift and Glance.
Open source storage projects like Ceph and Swift recommend a three copy policy for storage. The cost of storing three copies adds up quickly and not only effects disk/SSD costs, but also data center and operating costs.
Nimble Predictive Flash platform is the most efficient in the market, providing the highest level of usable and effective capacity for all-flash arrays – storing over 2PB of data in just 12U of rack space. Space saving features like inline deduplication and compression reduce your storage usage and footprint by up to 5X or more. Space efficient snapshots, data replication, and clones ensure data is protected without performance overhead.
Fast and reliable – pick both. Nimble Predictive Flash platform delivers over 99.9999% measured uptime and scales to over 1.2 million IOPS in a single cluster enabling you to improve both your uptime and performance SLAs.
Further optimize by providing premium and cost-optimized SLAs and adjust them the fly using the Unified Flash Fabric that combines all-flash and hybrid flash into a single pool of storage with common data services.
Build an Openstack cloud that consolidates all your tenants. Everyone happily living together under one roof (cloud).
Nimble InfoSight Predictive Analytics correlates trillions of sensor data points to predict and prevent issues across the infrastructure stack. Native driver integration automates storage provisioning through Openstack. InfoSight allows you to focus on cloud orchestration and new services, and spend less time managing your storage and infrastructure.
Nimble works closely with the Openstack community and distribution partners to ensure you have a stable and smooth deployment.
