A Nimble Support Solution — In More Than One Way

HP Maintenance

Paul Mercina January 02, 2020

Customers benefiting from Nimble’s CASL and InfoSight features deserve a support solution that’s equally, well, nimble.

HPE Nimble CS-Series Arrays have reached legacy status. We recently discussed third party maintenance options for keeping these systems in service, even when HPE will no longer support them. Park Place introduced OEM-alternative Nimble storage maintenance solutions because we understand that data center managers are eager to extend the lifespan of Nimble CS200, CS300, CS500, and CS700 hardware, for many reasons.

Nimble Scalability & Storage Management

Integrating HDDs and SSDs in hybrid fashion, Nimble CS-Series Arrays are the building blocks for the Adaptive Flash Platform. And the proprietary innovations incorporated in these systems quickly set them apart with a data sciences-based approach to the storage lifecycle.

In the Nimble products, the Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL), a CPU-based storage architecture, enables non-disruptive scaling. Enterprises can add capacity with disk shelves, improve performance with CPU cores, accelerate read with SSDs, and cluster in any combination for maximum flexibility.

In-line compression and triple-parity RAID round out CASL’s features, while the InfoSight tool set brings storage management, predictive analytics, and proactive alerts regarding system health, performance, and protection gaps.
