Nimble Adaptive Flash CS-Series Arrays Tested and Ready to Run on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM

SAN JOSE, CA – Nov 10, 2014 — / — Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), the flash storage solutions company, today announced that its Adaptive Flash CS-Series arrays have achieved Oracle VM Ready and Oracle Linux Ready status through Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), demonstrating that Nimble Storage has tested and supports Adaptive Flash CS-Series arrays on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM.

Nimble addresses the requirement for mixed workload Oracle environments, in which enterprises running both transactional (OLTP) and analytical (OLAP) workloads can experience improvements in application performance and storage capacity. In addition, organizations can help accelerate Oracle application deployments by leveraging Oracle VM templates with Nimble Storage. Nimble is a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

Oracle Linux Ready and Oracle VM Ready are part of the Oracle Exastack Ready program which allows partners, such as Nimble Storage to be recognized by Oracle for developing, testing and tuning their applications on the latest component products of the Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, Oracle SuperCluster, Oracle Database Appliance or Oracle Big Data Appliance engineered systems.

Enterprises are under intense pressure to scale performance and capacity in line with the requirements of business-critical applications — while containing cost and complexity. Nimble has engineered a single flash storage architecture designed to leverage the fast read performance of flash and the cost-effective capacity of hard disk drives, a combination suited to demanding Oracle environments. Nimble’s Adaptive Flash platform can help deliver a high level of performance and capacity for both OLAP and OLTP workloads. Nimble Storage can enable database administrators and application developers to create full functioning clones of Oracle application data in real time, simplifying the management and deployment of a test and development environment.
