"Nimble Storage Scales Down High Performance, Full-Featured SAN Storage
 for Smaller IT Environments"
 Converged Primary and Backup Storage Array Fits Modest Budgets While
 Delivering the Full Feature Set and Functionality Associated with
 Enterprise-Class Storage Systems
 July 14, 2011

  "... announced the availability of a new entry-level converged
   primary and backup storage array designed and priced to meet the
   requirements of smaller IT environments and remote offices while
   delivering the functionality and performance associated with
   enterprise-class storage area networks (SANs).

   The Nimble CS210 combines primary and backup storage in a single
   array, and is built around a new architecture designed for flash
   memory in combination with high-capacity drives - a solution that
   delivers extremely high performance at a low cost. While the system's
   capabilities and usable capacity of 8 terabytes (8TB) make it
   an ideal primary storage and backup system for smaller IT environments,
   its high performance also makes it the ideal platform for
   I/O-intensive applications such as virtual desktop infrastructure
   (VDI) deployments. Furthermore, built-in capacity optimization and
   WAN-efficient replication enable it to serve as a cost-effective
   offsite storage array for disaster recovery for small to midsize
   IT environments."
