Nimble Storage Introduces CS700 Series Arrays, Scales Out to Petabyte Capacity and Up To 500,000 IOPS

Nimble Storage, the flash storage solutions vendor, has launched the CS700 adaptive flash arrays and All-Flash Shelf delivering up to 500,000 IOPS, 64 terabytes (TBs) of flash, and a petabyte of capacity. The new solution would enable enterprises to meet performance and capacity requirements for any workload in virtualized datacenters and cloud hosting environments.

The new CS700 Series array can handle a variety of performance-intensive enterprise workloads, such as large-scale VDI deployments and high transaction-volume databases, as well as other performance intensive server virtualization workloads such as Microsoft Exchange.

The new All-Flash Shelf provides the flexibility to scale flash gradually up to 16 TBs per node, or 64 TBs in a 4-node scale-out cluster, delivering industry leading flash densities. These new products would be able to deliver leading performance by leveraging CASL, a CPU-driven architecture that eliminates the dependence on disk spindles.

Oracle OLTP databases

nimble-cs700Adaptive Flash is based on CASL, Nimble’s patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout architecture, and InfoSight, the company’s automated cloud hosting based management and support system. The platform is engineered to provide organizations with the highest levels of performance efficiently. Along with integrated data protection and predictive support, enterprise customers can deploy and scale their storage infrastructure as their business grows.

“The CS700 reinforces that we can rely on Nimble Storage for all of our critical applications, including several very large-scale Oracle OLTP databases,” said Matt Foroughi, vice president of SaaS Operations, Airclic. The company offers cloud hosting based solutions within the supply chain industry that automate some 15 million business transactions every day, worth more than $165 billion yearly. “Across the bulk of our daily storage operations, we realized a 300% gain in performance over our previous storage system. Furthermore, Nimble snapshot technology has improved our data protection strategy by bringing our worst case RPO down to 7 minutes.”
