Nimble Storage is a flash-optimized hybrid storage solution that includes highly-efficient, data replication software for off-site data. Nimble stores all data compressed on disk and replicates only changed data to the remote site. While Nimble is efficient in data replication, customers replicating over longer distances see lower rates of data transfer and find it difficult to meet their recovery point objective (RPO). That’s because as distance increases between the data center and the remote site, round-trip latency also increases. A combination of this increased latency and the amount of packet loss found on shared networks can cause replication to slow down or even stop. That’s where Silver Peak can help.
