Nimbus Data is an American computer data storage software and systems company.
Nimbus Data develops flash memory solutions. Customers include eBay, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Digital River, Raytheon, Citrix Systems, Lockheed Martin and DreamWorks. The company is rumored to have major wins at Apple Inc. and Thomson Reuters. The privately held company is led by CEO and founder Thomas Isakovich.
In January 2012, Nimbus Data announced the E-Class system. It offers redundant controllers and up to 500 TB of solid-state storage. Each controller supports the same interfaces: Ethernet, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand. Nimbus Data software detects controller and path failures, providing failover as well as online software updates and online capacity expansion.
In August 2012, Nimbus Data announced the Gemini system, with an available 10-year warranty. Gemini includes dual controllers for no single point of failure and non-disruptive software updates. In a 2U form factor, the Gemini array supports 48 TB of capacity, 1 million IOps, 12 GB/s, and less than 0.1 ms latency. Certified benchmark results of over 4,032 simultaneous virtual desktop (VDI) users has been achieved on a single Gemini system.
In August 2013, Nimbus Data announced the Gemini F400 and F600 systems with increased performance of up to 2 million read IOps at less than 0.05 ms latency (4 KB block I/O rates). Nimbus Data's HALO software, embedded in its flash memory systems, handles both block storage (storage area network) and file systems (network attached storage) by supporting several protocols. Data management features include thin provisioning, automatic capacity reclamation, encryption, replication, snapshots, inline deduplication, compression, and automatic self-healing capabilities.
In August 2016, Nimbus Data unveiled a new all-flash array platform called ExaFlash.
In August 2017, Nimbus Data launched ExaDrive, a software-defined multiprocessor SSD architecture.
In March 2018, Nimbus Data launched the world's highest capacity and most energy-efficient solid state drive, the ExaDrive DC100, at 100 terabytes.
