Toshiba unveils Nimble Storage solutions in the Middle East
Adaptive Flash technology delivers true business value with rapid backup and recovery at a reasonable price
Toshiba recently teamed up with Nimble Storage, a provider of flash-optimised data storage solutions based in California, as the exclusive distributor of Nimble storage solutions in the Middle East.
Toshiba is showcasing the Adaptive Flash platform, the latest in hybrid storage innovation, in the current Gartner Symposium/ITXpo 2015 in Dubai.
Using hybrid storage architecture, Nimble Storage's Adaptive Flash platform is engineered to address the industry's most pressing storage issues by delivering better performance and capacity at a reasonable price; providing integrated protection with rapid backup and recovery; and reining in storage complexity.
The platform combines flash-optimised architecture with InfoSight, a cloud-based management service that delivers predictive support and operational simplicity through deep data analytics. InfoSight ensures the peak health of storage infrastructure by identifying problems and offering solutions in real time.
Through Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL), a CPU-driven storage solution that is non-dependent on spindle count, the platform combines the unique properties of flash and disk to provide high performance and capacity.
Together, Infosight and CASL make Nimble Storage's Adaptive Flash platform the first storage solution in the market that eliminates the need for businesses to choose between performance and capacity.
Santosh Varghese, General Manager of Digital Products and Services, Toshiba Gulf FZE, said, "In today's world, IT departments have transformed into service-oriented organisations, with the need to satisfy different interests. Understanding this concern, Toshiba sees the Adaptive Flash platform as a necessary innovative B2B solution for enterprises, big or small, especially here in the Middle East."
"We are delighted to add Toshiba as a distributor in the MEA. As a leading value added distributor, Toshiba is ideally qualified to join Nimble's rapidly-expanding partner program," said Clare Loveridge, VP EMEA, Nimble Storage.
"Toshiba has the expertise, local market knowledge and dedication required to support Nimble's rapid growth."
