storage architectures the engine powering storage
Storage Architectures–The Engine Powering Storage

Today’s Storage Architectures

  • Architected to use disk only; overlaying flash on top results in partial solution

Purpose-built, Performance Hybrid

  • Designed from the ground up to leverage the best of flash and disk
  • Eliminates compromise between performance, capacity, and data management
engineered for efficiency
Engineered for Efficiency

2-5x More Usable Capacity/$

2-5x More Performance/$

  • High capacity disk
  • Always-on compression
  • High ratio of usable to raw capacity
  • Responsive flash cache accelerates reads with no RAID overhead
  • Serialized writes eliminate need for high RPM spindles







Scaling at the Lowest Incremental Cost

Scaling at the Lowest Incremental Cost

Instant Backups & Restores





  • Thin snapshots with no performance penalty
  • Retention for months, not days
  • WAN-efficient replication
  • Scale just performance, just capacity, or both
  • Scale-out cluster eliminates storage silos
  • Scale with zero downtime
  • Scale just performance, just capacity, or both
  • Scale-out cluster eliminates storage silos
  • Scale with zero downtime

SSD Cache





  • Guaranteed coalescing of random writes to sequential stripes; eliminates dependency on spindle speed
  • Coalesced writes to flash increase lifespan by 500%
  • Variable-size blocks enable fast inline compression
  • Elimination of read-modify-write penalty allows compression of all applications
  • Cache populated intelligently on first write, instantly on cache miss
  • Metadata in cache accelerates all accesses
  • 2-5x better performance / $
  • 2-5x better capacity / $
  • ~ 4x reduction in footprint, power and cooling
nimble cs series storage solution
Nimble CS-Series Storage Solution
  • Consolidate 4x more–high perf and efficiency
    • Compact 3U chassis
  • Instant snapshot and restore
    • 1000’s of efficient snapshots
    • VSS / VMware integration
    • WAN-efficient replication
  • Scale-to-fit architecture
    • Scale-up/scale-capacity/scale-out as needed
  • All-inclusive enterprise features
    • Cloning, thin provisioning, replication, etc.
    • Simple management for storage, backup, DR

Scale To Fit with CASL




  • Scale capacity alone using expansion shelves
  • Scale performance and capacity by adding nodes while managing centrally
  • Scale IOPS and reduce latency by scaling cache and/or compute

Scale flexibly and non-disruptively at the lowest incremental cost.

VM Recovery in minutes from backups that work

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Fast, reliable recovery…LOW RTOs
  • Hyper-V and VMware …1 console
  • Replicate VMs off-premise …Included
  • Deduplication, Compression …Included
  • Exchange & SharePoint recovery…Included
vpower recover vms in minutes
vPower …Recover VMs in Minutes
  • Exclusive patented Veeam technology
  • Runs the VM directly from the backup file
  • Publishes the contents of the backup file as a datastore a host can connect to

“This is why I love Veeam.They take all the virtualization technology pieces on the table andput them together into a functioning business solution.”

– Brett WestoverIT AdministratorTherapeutic Research Center

return on investment
Return on investment
  • Reduce costs for data protection
  • Eliminate downtime
  • Prolonged recoveries (for example, rebuild vs. restore, instant recovery)
  • Failed recoveries
  • Maximize server consolidation and savings:
  • Less Equipment
  • Less Power
  • Less cooling
  • Less floor space
  • Less Management
  • Keep your job (and your sanity): priceless
  • Business challenges
    • Consolidating demanding applications such as Exchange, SQL, and SharePoint increases the need for higher storage performance
    • Infrequent backups or none at all, leaving important business data unprotected
    • Cost-prohibitive Disaster Recovery solutions
  • Technical challenges
    • Long backup windows impacting availability of business-critical applications and services
    • Complex, time-consuming, and costly to manage mixed-environment backups
    • Limited array capacity preventing more frequent RPO’s
