Nimble Storage CS-Series Reviews

“It’s fast and furious, and super easy to manage and monitor! List price is high, but discounts are deep, and put the street price on the lower end of comparable vendors (TinTri, Tegile).

“The new line-up of all-flash options is very cool, but the entry level appliances with SSD caching already give a heck of a lot of bang for the buck to SMB scenarios.”
