webHOSTING.net to Use Nimble Storage Arrays in Hosted-Services Platform for Infrastructure, Virtual Desktops, and Disaster Recovery
SAN JOSE, CA, Mar 27, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Nimble Storage, the provider of flash-enabled, no-compromise
storage solutions, today announced that webHOSTING.net, a Nimble
partner, will use Nimble CS-Series arrays to deliver hosted,
performance-guaranteed services for networking infrastructure,
virtual desktops, and disaster recovery. webHOSTING.net offers
unmatched price-performance for customers of its services, thanks to
the Nimble arrays, which use a patented technology called Cache
Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL(TM)) to achieve superior
performance at low cost through the innovative use of solid-state
(flash) and high-capacity drives. webHOSTING.net offers services
through a carrier-class collocation facility that ensures efficient
delivery of low-cost hosted services. The new offerings will augment
webHOSTING.net's current managed-bandwidth services, as well as
application-specific services such as Hosted Exchange and Hosted
The new service offerings include:
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). webHOSTING.net offers server and
storage resources to host customers' virtualized infrastructure, as
well as applications such as Exchange and SQL, on Nimble arrays.
Desktop as a Service (DaaS). webHOSTING.net provides hosted VDI, with
multiple virtual desktops consolidated on a Nimble array. Thus,
customers who do not want to make dedicated infrastructure
investments in VDI can still reap its benefits.
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). webHOSTING.net replicates
data from customers' current primary storage devices or on-premise
Nimble arrays to Nimble arrays hosted offsite for disaster recovery.
This architecture dramatically reduces customers' cost of
implementing disaster recovery.
webHOSTING.net selected Nimble arrays because they deliver
SSD-accelerated performance without the accompanying high costs.
Nimble's always-on compression helps the service provider derive
maximum utilization from the array.
Data protection is built into each Nimble-based system configuration,
enhancing the delivery of disaster recovery and backup-and-restore
services for customers. In addition, the Nimble array's easy-to-use
command console simplifies webHOSTING.net's day-to-day management in
delivering these services.
"Its price-performance ratio gave Nimble a clear edge in our
selection of a storage, backup and DR platform for our hosted
services," said Jose Uribe, chief operating officer for
webHOSTING.net. "Storage administrators continually face the need to
balance I/O performance with capacity, but, unlike other vendors,
Nimble does not force any compromises. Our Nimble array runs
processes such as Exchange, SharePoint, and virtual servers, and
nothing we throw at it degrades performance. And, with all that,
we're using just over one-quarter of capacity. That's great news,
both for us and our customers."
"Continuous uptime and uncompromising performance are key to a
service provider's customer retention and satisfaction," said Dan
Leary, VP of Marketing for Nimble Storage. "webHOSTING.net continues
to score extremely high in both categories. We're delighted to play a
part in helping the company execute on its vision and mission."
