Nimbus Unveils “Hybrid” IP Storage Systems Designed for Server Virtualization

With the Nimbus Breeze Hybrid series, midsize enterprises can:

* Reduce costs of scaling out storage by 50% as compared to clustered iSCSI arrays
* Reduce storage hardware and software licensing costs by 40% as compared to iSCSI-only arrays
* Increase bandwidth by over 24 times as compared to clustered iSCSI arrays
* Capitalize on a 50 fold improvement in access times for I/O-intensive applications
* Reduce power and cooling costs by 75% as compared to separate SAN and NAS devices
* Utilize 10 Gigabit Ethernet, with 2.5 times the throughput and 75% lower cost than 4 Gigabit Fibre Channel
* Meet the challenges of both rising datacenter costs and ambitious storage and server consolidation projects with a single versatile, affordable, and familiar IP-based infrastructure

“At Loro Piana, our nationwide network of luxury clothing stores depends on nonstop access to critical application servers and storage. Using the Nimbus Breeze unified IP storage systems as the SAN and NAS foundation for our VMware ESX v3.5 environment, our IT operations run smoothly, efficiently, and virtually administration-free,” said Aaron Martin, IT Manager, Loro Piana. “Given the success to date utilizing the 10 Gigabit bandwidth of the system, we further plan to scale out our Nimbus to run a Virtual Desktop environment, as well.”
