Info-Tech Research Group Names Nimbus Data "Trend Setter" in Flash Memory Storage Systems

South San Francisco, CA, December 19, 2012 – Nimbus Data Systems, Inc., the leader in Sustainable Storage®, today announced that it has been named the “Trend Setter” in enterprise flash memory storage in Info-Tech Research Group’s Midrange to Entry Enterprise Storage Arrays Vendor Landscape. In addition to the award, Info-Tech Research Group placed Nimbus Data as the only flash vendor within the “Innovator” quadrant for demonstrating consistent innovation and competitive advantage in the market.

Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports recognize outstanding vendors in the technology marketplace.  Assessing vendors by the strength of their offerings and their strategies for the enterprise, Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscapes pay tribute to the contributions of exceptional vendors in a particular category.

“Nimbus Data’s combination of enterprise-grade reliability and flash memory technology deliver high performance to demanding IT environments, earning it the Trend Setter award in Info-Tech Research Group’s Vendor Landscape,” said Chris O’Connor, senior research analyst at Info-Tech Research Group. “Organizations with high performance requirements at a large scale should consider Nimbus Data for its highly scalable and reliable flash memory architecture, along with software features they expect from an enterprise-class storage solution, such as snapshots, deduplication, replication, encryption and thin provisioning.”

Since 2010, Nimbus Data flash memory systems have garnered recognition by awards committees, industry peers, research firms and end-users, highlighting the engineering leadership in both flash architecture and software technology. Nimbus Data solutions own numerous records in performance (only MLC flash system delivering over 1 million IOps), reliability (only available 10 year warranty), efficiency (lowest power consumption per TB), scalability (up to 500 TB) and multi-protocol features (unified FC, iSCSI, Infiniband, NFS, CIFS/SMB). Nimbus Data’s all-flash arrays, including the Gemini, S-Class and E-Class, enable forward-thinking CIOs to prepare for tomorrow’s performance and OpEx challenges for server and desktop virtualization, databases, and cloud infrastructure.

“Flash memory’s role in the data center has quickly transformed from supporting niche applications to driving large-scale replacement of conventional hard drive-based arrays,” stated Thomas Isakovich, CEO of Nimbus Data. “Receiving numerous awards from users to industry analysts further validates Nimbus Data’s unique path: by innovating in both software and hardware, Nimbus Data solutions significantly lower storage operating costs while outperforming and out-scaling off-the-shelf alternatives. We are delighted to receive this special recognition from Info-Tech Research Group.”
