Backup Solution", July 15, 2010
"Data Domain and NetApp Veterans Introduce Breakthrough Architecture
That Addresses the Cost and Complexity of Storage, Backup, and
Revolutionary Flash-Based Architecture
"The CS-Series is based on the company's patent-pending architecture,
Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL), which enables fast
inline data compression, intelligent data optimization leveraging
flash memory and high-capacity disk, instant deduped backups, and
WAN efficient replication - all in a single device. CASL allows
organizations to reduce their capital expenditures for storage and
backup by at least 60 percent, while eliminating the need for
separate, disk-based backup."
Nimble CS-Series Features and Benefits
A Fresh Approach to Storage
"Nimble Storage CS-Series iSCSI arrays combine flash memory with
low-cost, high-capacity drives, eliminating the need for expensive,
high-RPM drives for primary storage and separate disk-based backup
By converging storage, backup, and disaster recovery into a single
solution, enterprises can significantly cut costs, reduce complexity,
and implement a complete and cost-effective disaster recovery

"Nimble does nifty combined storage backup box", 16th July 2010
"NetApp says there will be a 2-tier storage array in future, with hot
data in flash and bulk data held on SATA Drives. Startup Nimble
Storage says it's here now with its CS-Series, which combines the
attributes of separate EqualLogic and Data Domain arrays in one box.
The company has been started up by people who used to work at
Data Domain and EqualLogic. They say the hottest storage products
now are iSCSI arrays like those from Dell EqualLogic and HP Left Hand,
the P4000 range, on the one hand, and deduplicating disk backup
products from EMC Data Domain. Their concept is to combine the two,
do away with separate iSCSI SAN storage and disk backup arrays, by
having deduplicated snapshot data held on SATA drives in the iSCSI
"The CS220 has 9TB of primary SATA storage and 108TB of secondary SATA
storage and costs around $50,000. The CS240 has 18TB of primary SATA
disk, 216TB of secondary SATA capacity, and costs around $100,000.
They will be generally available in August and Nimble Storage is
setting up a reseller channel. A peer-to-peer clustering capability
will come out in a v1.1 software release."
"Dell EquaLogic launches automated tiering", 9th June 2010
"Dell has announced XVS versions of its P6000 arrays that provide faster
and more efficient VMware storage, plus new firmware that automatically
moves hot data into a solid state drive (SSD) tier from SAS disks in
the same enclosure."
