Who are Nimble Storage
A lot of the problems that we solve are to do with improving application responsiveness. SSD was becoming more cost effective, cloud based analytics was becoming more feasible so created a product that combined fast performance with built in telemetry.
Benefits of Telemetry
Through integration with VMware, the cloud based telemetry platform (Infosight)
allows users to get to the root cause of issues, seeing VMware level information such as within guest resource usage through to storage metrics.
Veeam with Nimble Highlights
Integration with Veeam allows for reduced time to take backups, greatly reduce VMware snapshot consolidation OS stun times, and to increase the speed of restores.
It is very feature rich, on a par with other Storage systems that Veeam integrates with.
