Nimble Storage Named a 2013 Emerging Technology Vendor by CRN

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2013) - Nimble Storage, a leading provider of flash-optimized hybrid storage solutions, today announced it has been named a 2013 Emerging Technology vendor by UBM Tech Channel's CRN Magazine. The annual list highlights tech companies making an impact on the channel and impression on the tech industry as a whole. These up-and-coming technology vendors have recently introduced a new product or technology that is not only innovative, but generates the high margins solution providers require in today's competitive marketplace.

"Nimble has thrived with a channel-centric business model since its inception and remains committed to helping partners grow their business in a highly competitive storage market," said Carolyn Crandall, vice president of corporate and field marketing, Nimble Storage. "This award validates our value proposition for the channel and the growing interest in our enterprise storage solutions."

Nimble Storage has developed the first hybrid storage architecture engineered to address the industry's most pressing storage issues: delivering better performance and capacity at a reasonable price; providing integrated protection with rapid back up and recovery; and, reining in storage complexity. The company's products are based on its patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL™) hybrid storage architecture that leverages fast read performance of flash and the cost-effective capacity of hard disk drives. Nimble combines this flash-optimized architecture with Nimble InfoSight, a cloud based management service that delivers predictive support and operational simplicity through deep data analytics.

Nimble offers global resources and incentives focused on helping partners increase profitability. In addition, to support solution selling models, Nimble has invested extensively in a series of SmartStack™ pre-validated reference architectures that minimize the challenges associated with deploying application, server, hypervisor, networking and storage components as an integrated solution. At the heart of every SmartStack solution is a validated reference architecture leveraging Nimble Storage CS-Series and strategic partners' solutions such as Cisco UCS, VMware vSphere, vCenter and View, Microsoft Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V, Citrix XenDesktop and CommVault Simpana. These converged infrastructures provide partners a way to sell bundles of products and as a result increase their revenues.

According to Steve Welch, CEO at Nascent Integrated Solutions, a Nimble Storage partner, "The foundation of our business model is based on working with new and emerging manufacturers that are offering only the best of the best technology. The hybrid flash storage solution from Nimble Storage, with its revolutionary CASL architecture and InfoSight support offering, makes them one of the most innovative solutions the storage industry has seen in the last decade or more. As evidence, we are seeing increased adoption of the Nimble Storage solution from initially SMB and commercial clients to now, large enterprise accounts. These organizations see the Nimble product offering as a truly disruptive technology."
