The management software that runs in the cloud is called InfoSight and it is very good. It is similar to machine learning software that monitors your hardware.

Even if one control fails, it automatically turns on the other controller and everything moves from one to the second instantaneously without any issues.

It is easy to use. Not too complicated.

The fact that you can manage the requirements is one the most valuable features of HPE Nimble Storage. The other is the rapid deployment time.

The deduplication and compression capabilities are powerful.

Good architecture and produces a lot of IOPS.

Some of the beneficial features I have found are the Block-level backups, the interface is easy to use, backups work well and the portal is functional.

In the 20 days that we have been using this solution, it has been stable.

The most valuable feature is data mirroring.

The stability is awesome. The product has always been reliable. It has been 100 percent up. We have never had any downtime with it. Even if a controller fails due to our firmware or whatever, it rolls over to the second one and keeps us running.

Not only is it high performing, but it is also more compact and fits better in our storage arrays than equipment from other storage providers.

This solution has given us reliability that is evident by the fact that it has been running for five years with virtually no hiccups.

The solution's uptime is fantastic. It's 100 percent. In addition, Nimble's storage capacity efficiency is very effective.

We use a platform as a service and have multiple application vendors who comprise that platform. There are moments when those application vendors put the blame on us. By working in InfoSight, I am able to say, "No, it is not us." I can actually provide proof, either by using screenshots or through reporting.

We get storage access without the need for more human monitoring of those resources.

I really like the form factor, which is nice and compact and small.

InfoSight has identified controller failures or performance issues.

InfoSight has helped us resolved an issue where the snapshots were growing too big.

We have seen our average latency go from four milliseconds to point four. Therefore, we are getting 10 times better performance down to the end user on everything. We have seen an increase in our IOPS by ten times.

InfoSight has allowed us to centralize our management, understanding how it correlates to the array. It has identified a network issue in the network configuration of ESXi hosts. It enables us to get servers back up faster by 25 percent.

The storage capacity efficiency is phenomenal. It is off the charts in comparison to the compression ratios that we got before. We are able to save a lot more to the device.

The all-flash positions our organization for growth. It is much easier to use, and we do not have to worry about the I/O profile of the workloads that we putting on the array.
