Designed for Small to Midsize Organizations or Distributed Sites
Designed for mid-sized organizations or branch offices, the Nimble Storage CS200 series is a great fit for applications such as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), virtual server consolidation and Microsoft applications. These applications demand the non-disruptive scalability, high IOPS, and high capacity offered by the Nimble CS200 series, which is due to its unique CASL architecture. CASL stands for Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout, a patented architecture that is designed as a hybrid solution combining the exceptionally quick random read performance of flash and the cost-effective capacity offered by hard disk drives.

- The CS420 model is available in CS420-X2, CS420-X4, and CS420-X8 options only.
- 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.
- Maximum capacity is the capacity of the base array and maximum number of expansion shelves.
- Minimum usable capacity denotes the base capacity available to users once parity, spares and system overhead are deducted from overall raw capacity. Compression dramatically increases overall effective capacity.
