Nimble Storage, Inc. announced NimbleConnect, an online community where its customers, partners, and other IT professionals can access technical information, practical suggestions, and peer insights.

The community empowers members to maximize the value of their Nimble Storage data arrays, especially in conjunction with Nimble's new InfoSight deep data analytics services. InfoSight is built on analytics, systems modeling and intelligent, predictive algorithms, using the power of the cloud and deep data to simplify and streamline activities across the storage lifecycle. For example, virtual desktop users can garner best practices around sizing and configuring their environment to get the best performance and learn how others have resolved similar issues.

NimbleConnect has a search engine, and is packed with content, including technical discussions, Q&As, how-to videos, blogs, and industry news. Contributions are welcome, and the community is actively moderated to help keep the conversation flowing in a useful and thoughtful way.

According to Jerry Yang, CIO for Seattle-based law firm Foster Pepper PLLC, "NimbleConnect is an awesome resource that provides Foster Pepper with a centralized knowledge base platform for learning, sharing and asking questions about Nimble-related technical information."

Dan Leary, Nimble Storage's VP of WW marketing, commented: "NimbleConnect adds another dimension to the customer advocacy and evangelism that have helped us grow as quickly to more than 1,100 customers and 2,000 enterprise deployments in just over two years. The NimbleConnect community - by itself but especially in combination with InfoSight - provides further evidence of Nimble Storage's fundamentally different philosophy around our engagement with and support for our customers."

Jeff Byrne, senior analyst and consultant with Taneja Group, states: "Nimble's vibrant new community provides another proof-point of its commitment to its customers, partners, and IT professionals and validates its dedication to customer support and engagement."
