More Customers Turn to Nimbus Data Flash Memory Systems to Accelerate Oracle Databases

Power market analytics provider Yes Energy and software developer Lasso CRM solve database performance problems by replacing hybrid solutions with Nimbus Data all-flash arrays

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nimbus Data Systems, Inc., the leader in Sustainable Storage®, today announced two significant customer wins in business-critical Oracle database environments. Yes Energy, a top provider of analytics support solutions for power markets, and Lasso Data Systems, a leading developer of CRM software for the real estate market, selected the award-winning S-Class flash memory arrays to eliminate tuning and performance challenges presented by their previous infrastructures.  After replacing their existing hybrid solutions and high-end disk arrays with Nimbus Data's S-Class all-flash storage system, Yes Energy and Lasso CRM achieved up to a 7x improvement in database performance while decreasing data center power, space and cooling costs.

With PCIe flash cards and conventional hard drive-based storage arrays, Yes Energy faced an unwelcome compromise: while performance from PCIe flash was fast, capacity and high availability was lacking. Meanwhile, the disk array offered capacity and high availability, but unacceptably slow performance. Yes Energy found the ideal solution with Nimbus Data: an all-flash storage platform with even better performance than the hybrid arrangement of local PCIe flash and a disk-based SAN, plus large capacity and complete high availability to meet their growing needs. After implementing the Nimbus all-flash solution and comparing the results of identical full production loads against the existing PCIe flash and disk array solution, Yes Energy experienced up to 7x faster response times with the Nimbus, debunking the commonly-held belief that PCIe flash cards are faster than external all-flash storage systems.

"As a provider of split-second access to real-time data streams and efficient historical analysis, Yes Energy requires systems that can provide low-latency IO that enable us to write and read data as fast as possible," said Santhan Shanmugaratnam, Systems Architect of Yes Energy. "PCIe flash presented some problems and risks for us including limited scalability, single point-of-failure, CPU utilization, and slow IO, leading to higher load on our servers. Nimbus Data provides the critical reliability we need – one that enables fast response times, ease of management, and scaling options we will need down the road."

Lasso Data Systems experienced lethargic database reporting as well as escalating power and cooling costs while using a combination of traditional hard drive-based arrays and newer hybrid (SSD+HDD) solutions. Lasso opted to implement Nimbus Data's S-Class all-flash system and immediately saw tremendous improvements. Not only did Lasso utilize the S-Class to accelerate all MySQL database instances, Lasso also took advantage of Nimbus' multiprotocol features and ample horsepower to also serve NFS shares to Lasso's data warehouse application from the same array. In addition to dramatic performance advantages over hybrid solutions, the storage consolidation reduced operational costs by 43% through power, cooling and rack space savings. 

"These customer wins continue to demonstrate that Nimbus Data's networked all-flash systems provide superior performance and reliability than SSD/HDD hybrid solutions and even local PCIe flash cards," stated Thomas Isakovich, CEO and founder of Nimbus Data. "By supporting clustering, online capacity expansion, non-disruptive maintenance, and exceptional IO latency, Nimbus Data all-flash arrays are ideal for accelerating Oracle, a success story repeated over and over at our enterprise customers."

In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
