AFA Vendor Nimbus Data Offers Industry-Leading Value for the Right Types of Enterprise Storage Customers
This IDC Perspective quickly reviews the state of the AFA market and takes a look at Nimbus Data's business model and the implications this has for its customers. Nimbus Data, a longtime vendor of AFAs, has carved out a unique niche for itself selling systems for dense but very cost-effective mixed enterprise workload consolidation.
"With its versatility, flash-optimized federated architecture, and multitenant management capabilities, the Nimbus Data ExaFlash is a well-conceived and very cost-effective storage platform for dense enterprise workload consolidation," said Eric Burgener, research vice president in the Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group at IDC. "Its ability to support different access methods, storage protocols, persistent media types, and granularly configurable data services lets customers configure systems to meet a wide variety of different application requirements in the same, centrally managed system."
