Nimble Storage announced upgrades to its CS-Series arrays with the introduction of two new families: CS300 and CS500. The new families, like Nimble’s high-end CS700 array, leverage the company’s unique Adaptive Flash CPU-driven architecture and the newest version of Intel’s high-performance CPU architecture. The new arrays deliver 50 percent more performance than the CS200 and CS400 families that they are replacing.
Nimble’s Adaptive Flash platform provides enterprises with the ability to scale performance and capacity independently. The Adaptive Flash platform is based on Nimble’s patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) architecture, and the company’s automated cloud-based management – InfoSight.
The CS300 and CS500 arrays can be combined with Nimble’s All-Flash Shelf to support tens of terabytes of flash in a scale-out cluster.
The new arrays offer 10Gbase-T, GbE, and GbE SFP+ networking connectivity with the promise of interchange connectivity in the future.
“Nimble’s Adaptive Flash platform is a highly flexible architecture that is designed to provide industry-leading price/performance benefits to its customers. The approach meshes well with growing end-user demands for a single, scalable storage platform that is future-proofed to meet changing IT needs. By incorporating its innovative technologies across its entire – and now expanded - product line, Nimble’s impressive business growth looks set to continue,” said Mark Peters, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group.
