webHOSTING.net to Use Nimble Storage Arrays in Hosted-Services Platform for Infrastructure, Virtual Desktops, and Disaster RecoveryServices Enable Customers to Accelerate and Cost-Contain Their IT Initiatives; Service Level Agreements Guarantee High Performance (March 27, 2012)
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/12 -- 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) 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 Sharepoint.
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."
