South San Francisco, CA, September 20, 2012 – Nimbus Data Systems, Inc., the leader in Sustainable Storage®, today announced new customer wins in performance-critical Microsoft SQL Server environments. Aerospace Optics, Inc., a leading manufacturer of precision display equipment for military applications, selected the award-winning Nimbus S-Class as the foundation for its new low-latency SAN infrastructure. Loxogon, Inc., a leading provider of real-time revenue cycle solutions for the healthcare industry, chose the highly-scalable Nimbus E-Class flash memory system to dramatically accelerate their existing SQL Server deployment. These customers, and many more, discovered that implementing Nimbus flash memory technology is simpler and more effective than tiering, caching, spindle short-stroking and endless attempts at performance tuning with legacy disk arrays.
It’s great to see how organizations and vendors are using new flash based technologies to transform their various solutions whether its for high performance computing solutions, data analytics or in this case SQL Server deployments for real time low latency applications. I wonder if it’s going to become more mainstream in some arenas and market places/usage cases than others, we’ll have to see, it’s all about deploying the right technologies for your business from a technology, cost and operational perspective.
