At a high level, you really can't go wrong with either array as both Nimble and Pure deliver phenomenal performance. As one user has correctly indicated, the Infosight that Nimble offers is probably the single biggest reason for a lot of its success. It leverages machine…

HPE 3PAR All Flash: Is a traditional AFA that runs the same 3PAROS, the benefits of which are that, data is broken down into chunklets and striped across for performance and redundancy. If you have disparate 3PAR models across sites, you can still replicate etc. 3PAR has…

When we compare EMC XtremIO with HDS VSP F, there are quite a few things to be kept in the back of the mind: 1. The EMC XtremIO is an AFA that provides only block storage. It is a scale out system and works in terms of X-Bricks. The system can scale from 1-8 X-Bricks. 2.…
