Nimble Storage Executives to Present on the Future of Flash at the 2016 Flash Memory Summit
Nimble Storage Experts to Examine How Predictive Analytics Makes the All Flash Data Center a Reality for Enterprises
SAN JOSE – Aug. 2, 2016 – Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), the leader in predictive flash storage, today announced that its executives will lead industry discussions at the annual Flash Memory Summit, held Aug. 9–11, 2016 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif. The presentations will address a range of topics surrounding the future of the all flash data center, including capabilities of the new generation of all flash arrays, and the need for predictive analytics to eliminate barriers to fast application performance.
The Flash Memory Summit brings together the people and companies creating the next generation of flash memory hardware and software solutions for demanding enterprise storage applications. Attendees can visit the following sessions and forums at the Flash Memory Summit to hear from Nimble executives during the following sessions:
Making All Flash Data Centers a Reality
Nick Triantos, storage architect at Nimble Storage, will examine expectations versus the harsh realities facing IT teams when deploying all flash arrays. This session will cover the considerations businesses must take into account, such as managing silos, scaling up and scaling out, and data reduction. By overcoming deficiencies with new generation all flash arrays that offer predictive analytics, IT teams can identify even non-storage infrastructure barriers preventing applications from reaching their potential.
Selecting the Right Flash Memory for Your Application
As flash becomes more widespread, vendors are offering a greater variety of solutions that differ widely in capabilities, ease of use, cost, software and hardware support and suitability for particular applications. Dan Leary, vice president of corporate development, solutions and alliances at Nimble Storage, will participate in this panel discussing how organizations can select the right flash storage solution for their unique business applications and requirements. George Crump, lead analyst at Storage Switzerland, will serve as moderator.
Predictive Analysis Drives Future of Enterprise Flash
Rod Bagg, vice president of analytics and customer support at Nimble Storage, will reveal how fast flash is no longer enough on its own to address performance issues. Today’s environments need predictive analytics to collect, analyze and remove infrastructure obstacles that slow down data access and create complexity. With a combination of machine learning and data mining, deep data analytics creates visibility across the entire infrastructure stack and enhances overall flash system availability, performance and scalability.
Earlier this year, Nimble introduced the AF-Series All Flash arrays, as part of its Predictive Flash platform, to address the demands businesses face when transitioning to a modern data center. The Nimble Predictive All Flash arrays are designed to deliver unprecedented performance, scalability and non-stop availability, all at a lower total cost of ownership than competitive solutions. The Nimble Predictive Flash platform combines the fast flash performance of its All Flash and Adaptive Flash arrays with the power of predictive analytics through InfoSight. InfoSight is the Nimble Storage management and support tool that analyzes millions of data points to identify, predict and prevent any issues across the infrastructure stack.
