HPE Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash Arrays
Flash Performance for Mixed and Mainstream Workloads

HPE Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash Arrays

Struggling to find cost effective flash storage for your primary, secondary, and backup/DR workloads?

The HPE Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash Arrays are like having two flash arrays in one. The array is truly adaptive – designed for both primary and secondary flash workloads. It is a hybrid flash array for mixed, primary workloads where cost-efficient flash performance is important. It can also serve as a secondary flash array for backup and disaster recover (DR) while allowing you to put your backup data to work. The flash-enhanced architecture is combined with HPE InfoSight predictive analytics for fast, reliable access to data and 99.9999% guaranteed availability [1]. Radically simple to deploy and use, the arrays are cloud-ready – providing data mobility to the cloud through HPE Cloud Volumes. Your storage investment made today will support you well into the future, thanks to our technology and business-model innovations.
