Nimble Unveils Predictive All Flash Arrays

Nimble Storage introduced a series of Predictive All Flash arrays, combining fast flash performance with InfoSight Predictive Analytics.

The company said its new AF-Series All Flash arrays deliver a total cost of ownership (TCO) that is up to 33 to 66 percent lower than competitive arrays. The arrays use 10-30X less memory than competing all flash arrays by providing memory-efficient metadata to deliver unparalleled flash scalability and lower per array cost, while also reducing the total number of controllers required. The products support the cost-effective 3D V-NAND innovations of Samsung PM863 Series SSDs, and use advanced flash endurance management and integrated hot sparing to extend flash lifespan to seven years, while providing 20 percent more usable capacity, all at half the footprint and cost of competing eMLC-based all flash arrays.

The flagship Nimble AF9000 All Flash array delivers performance of up to 350,000 IOPS at sub-millisecond latency and scales effective capacity to over 2PB in just 12U. In scale-out four-node cluster configurations, the AF9000 can non-disruptively and independently scale performance up to 1.2M IOPS and effective capacity to over 8PBs.

“Our All Flash array delivers absolute speed for performance sensitive applications and workloads. It accelerates, scales, and delivers lower TCO than competing All Flash arrays,” said Ajay Singh, vice president of product management, Nimble. “Our engineers are so confident in the readiness of our All Flash arrays that we’ve been powering core Nimble production engineering infrastructure services on an AF7000 array for several weeks and have experienced flawless service.”
