SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 13, 2013) - Today Nimble Storage, the leading provider of flash-optimized hybrid storage solutions, announced the opening of its first East Coast office in North Carolina's Raleigh Technology Park. As part of the company's strategic global expansion plans, this new office will provide additional access to hi-tech and university talent; it will also enable Nimble Storage to further service customers across the region. The North Carolina office will house up to 100 employees focused on engineering, customer support and sales. Raleigh is known for being one of the country's largest and most successful research parks, a major center in the U.S. for high-tech and biotech research, and for being home to a number of colleges and universities including Duke University, North Carolina State, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Wake Forest University.
"This key investment in the East Coast region enables Nimble Storage to further its leadership in the global storage industry," said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO of Nimble Storage. "We are pleased to be contributing to the local economy and look forward to benefiting from the excellent technology talent-pool of the Raleigh community."
The move to the East Coast follows the recent expansion of Nimble Storage into the Asia Pacific region, where in the last six months the company has added presence in Singapore and Australia. Through its geographic expansion initiative, Nimble is targeting regions where there is significant opportunity for growth and access to hi-tech talent, and where businesses are turning to IT to transform their operations and increase competitiveness.
Nimble Storage has changed the game in the data storage industry by developing the industry's most innovative flash-optimized storage architecture designed to expressly leverage the best of flash performance and the price/capacity of high-capacity hard disk drives. Simultaneously delivering higher performance and larger capacities at a lower price than traditional storage systems, Nimble's award-winning products continue to benefit customers worldwide.
"It's exciting to see a Silicon Valley-based company expanding into Raleigh," said Chip Tanner, senior systems architect at the Charlotte, N.C., office of Schaefer Systems International.
