We performed a comparison between HPE Nimble Storage and SolidFire based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Dell Technologies, Pure Storage, NetApp and others in All-Flash Storage Arrays.
"The most valuable feature is the management of Nimble Storage, InfoSight. This is like a cloud. That's really a very nice feature. I think that's the only reason to buy Nimble Storage."
"The capacity for data storage and compression is good."
"In the 20 days that we have been using this solution, it has been stable."
"I have found the convergence rate and deduplication the most valuable features."
"The most useful features are high availability and the storage snapshot backup functionality."
"This product is very easy to set up."
"Some of the beneficial features I have found are the Block-level backups, the interface is easy to use, backups work well and the portal is functional."
"The solution is quite scalable."
"It's got full API functionality and the performance is pretty steady."
"A feature that would be a nice addition to the next release would be a filer option. A filer option so that you could connect the sim or NFS or chips like NetApp does for NAS functionality."
"The most difficult part about Nimble was the fact that it didn't have a standard length."
"The solution needs to be an active-active controller."
"If they could reduce the cost, that would be ideal."
"The solution could improve by having more granularity. For example, having the ability to go deeper into specific IO channels or specific latency issues that can happen would be a benefit. HPE has this ability on their side but it would be useful to have it on our side."
"We are doing a hybrid and are moving some machines to Microsoft Azure to run in hybrid mode. We are checking the availability of extra software-defined storage so that we can configure it."
"It would be ideal if all these enterprise-class high-performance products would come at a cheaper price."
"I would like to have more administrative rights, for example, root-level administrative rights to the underlying OS of the storage array. We want more access to the kind of underlying infrastructure of the storage array rather than relying on support. However, most companies are looking to have more managed solutions which is the opposite direction of what I want."
"The upgrade process could be better."
