Nimble Storage CS400 Series

Designed for Larger-Scale Deployments or IO-Intensive Workloads

Designed to meet the business needs of large organizations, the Nimble Storage CS400 series takes the performance offered by the Nimble CS200 series and turns it up a notch. Nimble CS240As a result, the Nimble CS400 series is ideal for IO-intensive workloads including transaction processing and large scale virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments. Built on Nimble Storage’s unique Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) architecture, the Nimble CS400 series takes advantage of flash performance and SSD storage capacity, as well as technologies such as thin provisioning, instant snapshots, dynamic caching and non-disruptive scaling.

Notes:
1. Raw and effective capacities are calculated using Base 10 (i.e., 1 TB = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes) after excluding space for parity, spares, and system overhead; the range represents 0 to 2x compression.
2. Maximum capacity is the capacity of the base array and maximum number of expansion shelves
