Nimble Storage Predictive Flash Now App-Centric | @DevOpsSummit @NimbleStorage #Storage #Containers

App-centric functionality including quality of service, secure multi-tenancy, Docker support and app-based storage pricing

"Infrastructure exists only to meet the demands of applications," said Ajay Singh, vice president of product management, Nimble Storage. "We recognize the need to bridge the gap between the application and storage owner. By taking an app-centric approach, IT teams are better positioned to meet the service level demands of the business."

Nimble Storage has announced a comprehensive suite of features that are optimized around fast and predictable application delivery. The Nimble Predictive Flash platform allows IT to deliver applications confidently with Quality of Service (QoS) and secure multi-tenancy across VMware, OpenStack, KVM and now Docker Containers. With app-centric management within InfoSight Predictive Analytics businesses now have more visibility and control of application performance. App-based Storage on Demand provides a cloud-like pricing model where enterprises only pay for the storage consumed by each application. This app-centric approach provides greater predictability and ease of management for applications across the enterprise.

Quality of Service and Secure Multi-Tenancy Deliver Predictable Application Performance
To meet application service level agreements (SLAs), Nimble Storage enables customers to consolidate infrastructure and easily manage applications with predictable performance through secure multi-tenancy and QoS. Multi-tenant storage allows secure application management and isolation while QoS prevents rogue workloads from impacting critical applications.

Application Delivery Model Options Now Include Docker Containers
Businesses want the flexibility to deliver applications using the framework of their choice without increased complexity. Nimble now supports native persistent storage for Docker Containers. Nimble already delivers app-level granularity through VMware VVols and native support for OpenStack Clouds. The depth of the app-centric integration across these platforms - policy-based application provisioning, clones, snapshots, replication and encryption - is the core of modern application delivery support.

App-Centric Management through Predictive Analytics
Nimble Storage InfoSight VMvision gives customers clear visibility across the storage-to-VM infrastructure stack. VMvision allows organizations to automatically identify noisy VM neighbors by narrowing down the exact application that is draining resources from other workloads. Where traditional storage based insights do not provide granular data for capacity planning and forecasting, VMvision provides IT with app-level capacity data for accurate storage planning.

App-based Pricing for Storage on Demand Provides Cloud-like Agility
Nimble Storage on Demand ensures users only pay for the application storage that they use, whether usage goes up or down. Now customers can consume storage based on application usage exactly as they do in a cloud environment. Based on a pre-set app-specific SLA customers can pay for what they consume starting from 6.8 ¢ per GB per month for All Flash storage*.
