Deep predictive capabilities allow Nimble to provide a superior customer support experience to the more than 10,000 customers.
"The future of infrastructure is predictive and autonomous. Since our inception, this has been at the forefront of our mission," said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO at Nimble Storage.

The machine learning capabilities built into the Nimble Predictive Flash platform have enabled the measured availability to reach over six-nines (99.9999%) uptime.
Customers Around the Globe are Recognizing the Value of Predictive Infrastructure
Gamma Scales IT Infrastructure with Predictive Flash Platform
Gamma is one of the largest suppliers of voice, data and mobile products and services in the U.K. The telecommunications company was experiencing growing pains with its legacy storage provider. The company wanted to scale capacity of its corporate IT infrastructure and improve reliability and performance of critical workloads. Gamma also wanted to lower soaring operational costs and simplify storage management for its IT staff, enabling them to focus on more strategic IT initiatives. Gamma has been steadily scaling out its Nimble Predictive Flash platform over the past few years, most recently adding an AF9000 All Flash array. The increased performance and capacity on the AF9000 is focused on mission-critical workloads that underpin Gamma's corporate IT infrastructure.
Werum IT Solutions Improves IT Infrastructure Availability

The Lüneburg, Germany-based software company has deployed 20 CS-Series Adaptive Flash arrays supporting their global offices in the US, Europe and Asia.

By implementing the Adaptive Flash arrays, the company achieved significantly better performance compared to other storage vendor products. A leading factor in Werum IT Solutions' continued patronage of Nimble is due to InfoSight Predictive Analytics, which has allowed the company to operate critical software development and supports 3,000 virtual machines.
National Rugby League Adds Performance and Capacity for Future Growth
The National Rugby League (NRL) administration represents a sporting club that involves 1.3 million participants across the nation. It runs the Telstra Premiership which spans Australia and New Zealand. It also manages the operations of Country Rugby League, NSW Rugby League and is responsible for game development. Rapid growth of the NRL's in-house IT services resulted in application performance issues and increased demand for storage. The NRL was also experiencing virtual server growth from four to 65 servers and a near doubling of staff, placing pressure on the organization's existing IT infrastructure. With its vendors no longer providing support for the legacy storage arrays, the NRL turned to Nimble. Implementing the Predictive Flash platform reduced storage rack space requirements by 50 percent, and the NRL had no need to specify storage tiers or RAID levels, aggregates or volumes. Nimble now supports the continued development of the organization's IT infrastructure and the business of the NRL.
