Nimble Storage solutions are built on the patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) architecture. CASL differs from the traditional bolt-on approach of using flash as a tier. Instead, CASL was designed from the ground up to leverage the lightning-fast random read performance of flash and the cost-effective capacity of hard disk drives. CASL also incorporates innovative efficiency features, such as inline variable-block compression, cloning, and integrated snapshots, to store and serve more data in less space.

"[Nimble Storage's] compression has been remarkable—and especially on VDIs, where today we are seeing compression of between 60 and 80 percent. Now, we have literally four times the space and our expansion options are seemingly limitless."Tony Banken, Network Administrator at Central Minnesota Jobs & Training Services
