Nimble Storage InfoSight: Transforming the Storage Lifecycle Experience with Deep-Data Analytics

The job of a storage administrator can sometimes be a difficult and lonely one. Administrators must handle a broad set of responsibilities, encompassing all aspects of managing their arrays and keeping up with user demands. And yet, flat IT budgets mean administrators are spread thin, with limited time to manage storage through its lifecycle, let alone improve and optimize storage practices and services.

In most organizations, the storage lifecycle is managed manually, as a complex and disjointed set of activities. Maintenance and support tend to be highly reactive, forcing administrators to play “catch up” each time a storage problem occurs. Monitoring and reporting rely on complex tools and large amounts of data that are difficult to interpret and act upon. Forecasting and planning are more art than science, leading administrators to overprovision to be on the safe side. These various lifecycle activities are seldom connected and inherently inefficient, and fail to provide administrators with the insight they need to anticipate issues and develop best practices. This, in turn, can put system availability and performance at risk, while reducing IT productivity.

Fortunately, one innovative vendor—Nimble Storage—has developed a powerful, data sciences-driven approach that promises to transform the storage lifecycle experience. Based on deep data collection, intelligent and predictive analytics, and automation built on storage and application expertise, Nimble InfoSight streamlines the storage lifecycle, providing administrators with the insights needed to optimize their arrays while also increasing their productivity. InfoSight collects and analyzes over 30 million data points each day from every installed Nimble Storage array worldwide, and then makes the resulting intelligence available both to Nimble engineers and customers. InfoSight automated analysis helps to proactively anticipate and prevent technical problems, significantly reducing the support burden on administrators. InfoSight also provides administrators with an intuitive, dashboard-driven portal into the performance, capacity utilization and data protection of their arrays, enabling them to monitor array operations across multiple sites and to better plan for future needs. By streamlining and informing key activities across the storage lifecycle, InfoSight simplifies and enhances day-to-day administrative tasks such as support, monitoring and forecasting, while enabling administrators to focus on more important initiatives.

To put a human face on InfoSight intelligence, Nimble Storage has also unveiled a new user community. The community allows users to connect and share ideas and resources via discussion forums, knowledge bases, and social media channels. The Nimble community will enable the company’s large and loyal customer base to write about and share their experiences and insights with each other, as well as with prospective users. Together, InfoSight and the Nimble community will give storage administrators unprecedented access to anonymized installed based data and peers’ expertise, enabling them to stay on top of their game and get more out of their arrays.

In this profile, we’ll examine the challenges administrators typically face on a day-to-day basis, and then take a closer look at InfoSight capabilities, and how they address these issues. We’ll then learn how two Nimble customers have benefited from InfoSight in several important ways. Finally, we’ll briefly examine the Nimble community, and discuss how these two initiatives together are empowering administrators through a combination of shared user data and insights.
