Nimbus to Demonstrate S-Class Intelligent Flash Storage Systems at 2010 Flash Memory Summit

Company CEO to participate on 'Green Flash' panel at leading technology conference

San Francisco, CA, August 13, 2010 – Nimbus Data Systems today announced that it will showcase its next-generation enterprise flash storage systems at the 2010 Flash Memory Summit in Booth 318 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California, August 17-19, 2010.

Nimbus’ S-Class flash storage systems leverage the incredible speed, efficiency, and comprehensive software of NAND flash technology and Nimbus’ HALO operating system to deliver up to 24x greater storage performance and 90% lower energy usage than traditional disk-based arrays. Featuring up to 600 redundant NAND flash blades and on-demand expansion to 250 TB of solid state storage in a single file system, the S-Class is the first flash-based storage system with the software and economics needed for mainstream enterprise storage deployment.

In addition to demonstrating its line of Sustainable Storage™ solutions, company CEO Thomas Isakovich will address attendees as a panelist on a special plenary session on ‘Green Flash’ August 17 at 1:30 p.m. The session will explore how flash memory can potentially transform the energy equation when it comes to data centers and how the technology can impact energy consumption and cooling as flash migrates into computers, servers and storage systems.

“Today’s enterprises and datacenters are struggling with nonstop data growth while storage capacity, complexity and operating costs continue to grow relentlessly,” said Isakovich. “Nimbus’ pure flash enterprise storage systems leverage the incredible I/O performance of NAND technology to deliver superior application performance while drastically reducing datacenter operating costs. I look forward to sharing with attendees how they can leverage Sustainable Storage solutions in their organizations at both our booth and on the ‘Green Flash’ panel.”

Nimbus’ market reach extends beyond virtualization and databases to HPC applications, including data mining and data warehousing, seismic data processing for the energy market, astrophysical, biotech, and genomics analysis, and medical imaging. Service providers building public and private cloud computing services, such as VMs and storage on-demand, can now do so with a flash-based platform that offers both high capacity and 90 percent lower energy, cooling, and rackspace costs than traditional 15K rpm disk arrays. The powerful Nimbus HALO storage operating system, standard on all S-Class systems, provides snapshots, replication, deduplication, and multi-protocol SAN and NAS functionality out of the box for complete enterprise storage management.

The Flash Memory Summit program is designed to provide attendees with practical information on the current state of flash memory and its applications.  The Summit Program consists of an all-day tutorial followed by three days of panel discussions, keynotes, paper sessions, workshops and special sessions.
