Nimble Storage Hits Milestone With 1,000th Customer Win

Rapid Adoption of Company's Flash-Optimized Storage Arrays Proves Market Demand for Its Hybrid Approach

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- Today Nimble Storage, the leading provider of flash-optimized hybrid storage solutions, announced it has surpassed the 1,000-customer mark. The company has reached this milestone in less than two-and-a-half years of selling its products, due to the tremendous demand for its flash-optimized storage arrays. Nimble Storage products integrate the high performance of flash with the economics of high-capacity hard disk drives -- making them ideal for storing and protecting data for critical applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, server virtualization and VDI. Nimble Storage's scale-to fit technology provides complete flexibility for independently scaling capacity and performance at the lowest possible cost. Customers consistently see performance enhanced by up to a factor of ten, while Nimble Storage's Proactive Wellness support capabilities provide increased storage uptime and keep arrays running at peak performance and efficiency.

Highlights, Key Facts, and Quotes:

Nimble Storage's technology is best known for its performance enhancements, overall efficiency gains and Proactive Wellness management tools. The company's success has been fueled by interest from companies in all industries that have realized the opportunity for significant savings driven by reductions in total cost of ownership from deploying Nimble Storage solutions. Customer growth is consistent across all major vertical industries, including government, education, financial services, legal and healthcare.

"Eighty-plus percent of our competition consists of legacy vendors, and even against their most modern architectures, we are winning deals at an amazing clip," said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO of Nimble Storage. "Our customers are adopting our solution because we can leverage the best of flash performance and the price/capacity of high-capacity hard disk drives, while at the same time provide unmatched data management functionality. This latest customer milestone proves it's a winning combination."

Nimble Storage's expansion into international markets has also contributed to this strong customer momentum. Citipointe Christian College, located in Brisbane, Australia, became Nimble Storage's 1,000th customer as a direct result of this global expansion.

"We believe that Nimble Storage has done for us what no other storage vendor could achieve -- higher performance at a reasonable price coupled with ease-of-use that is second to none," said Ben Davis, director of ICT, Citipointe Christian College Brisbane.

A strong contributor to the company's success in acquiring new customers is its loyalty to the channel. Nimble Storage has driven more than 95 percent of its revenue through the channel and finds that once partners sell their first system they quickly introduce Nimble to their other customers. Due to the attractiveness of the Nimble Storage Partner Program and the ease of selling its solutions, Nimble Storage has increased its partner base to more than 350 partners worldwide.

"Nimble's CS-Series arrays are unique in combining high-performance flash and high-capacity hard disk drives, creating an extremely cost-effective solution that meets the requirements for a customer base with a vast range of workloads and networking environments. The Nimble Partner Program affords customers this solution with industry-leading reliability and a highly competitive storage platform for resellers -- all in all an unbeatable combination," said Dave Kluger, principal technology architect, Storcom.

Nimble Storage has changed the game in the data storage industry by developing an integrated flash-optimized storage architecture designed to expressly leverage the best of flash performance and the price/capacity of high-capacity hard disk drives. Today's storage architectures limit scalability to either performance or capacity; Nimble's scale-to-fit technology, built on the groundbreaking Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) architecture, addresses these limitations by allowing customers to purchase exactly what they need up front and by providing the industry's most flexible scaling options. Customers can protect their existing investments while growing their storage at the lowest incremental cost, without downtime, as their needs evolve.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
