ZeroStack announced a joint solution with Nimble Storage that combines ZeroStack’s Intelligent Cloud Platform with Nimble Storage systems to create a pre-tested, entirely automated, and fully supported converged private cloud solution. Through this joint solution, enterprises can now leverage their current investments in Nimble Storage and ZeroStack installed on servers to build a highly resilient and high performing cloud for application development, running packaged enterprise applications and hosting.
The combined ZeroStack/Nimble Storage solution offers several unique advantages:
ZeroStack’s Cloud Platform solution can now use Nimble Storage systems as back-end storage. Users can plug the Nimble Storage devices into the ZeroStack platform.
Nimble Storage’s cutting-edge features, such as cross-site replication with end-to-end encryption, and application-level policies under which applications like Oracle or SQL Server are specifically tuned to run on Nimble Storage with the highest performance.
ZeroStack users can leverage Nimble’s QoS and Dedupe capabilities for overall storage efficiencies.
According to Gary O’Neal, Vice President Alliances at Nimble Storage, “Nimble Storage customers can now leverage their existing deployment to integrate with ZeroStack and extend the storage efficiencies in a hybrid cloud environment. Our predictive flash storage solutions give our customers the storage agility they need, and ZeroStack’s cloud platform extends storage into the cloud for self-service use on a self-healing infrastructure.”
Nimble Storage and ZeroStack will market the solution to their customers and resellers. With this integrated solution, Nimble Storage and ZeroStack resellers can provide their customers with strategic advice on cloud and storage options while keeping customers who might otherwise have no choice but to shift to a public cloud provider.
Kamesh Pemmaraju, Vice President of Product Management at ZeroStack said, “Nimble Storage is the leader in all-flash storage systems that closes the application performance gap. By integrating our products, we extend our customers' existing investments and deliver a turnkey on-premises cloud solution with predictable performance and simplified operations.”
