Eliminate the App-Data Gap with Nimble Storage


‘Radically simplify operations through machine learning.’

Nimble Storage is a predictive flash storage technology company based in San Jose, California founded in early 2008. It produces hardware and software products for data storage, specifically data storage arrays that use the iSCSI and Fibre Channel protocols and includes data backup and data protection features.

Nimble Storage is the leader in predictive cloud infrastructure. Any slow-down that occurs across the infrastructure stack (storage, networks, servers and software infrastructure) causes an “app-data” gap that disrupts data delivery and slows down business. Nimble offers a predictive cloud platform that closes the “app data gap,” giving you the fastest, most reliable access to data. Predictive analytics combined with flash storage radically simplify IT operations in your data center and in the cloud. More than 10,000 customers across 50 countries rely on Nimble to power their businesses.

The company’s mission is to accelerate digital transformation by giving users the fastest, most reliable access to data – on-premise and in the cloud.
