NIMBOXX Unveils New Hyperconverged Solution for Data Intensive Workloads
NIMBOXX, a leader in Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions, today announced the availability of the AU-110x, the latest addition to the company's portfolio of web-scale, hyperconverged devices. The new HCI appliance delivers an industry leading 360,000 IOPS, in addition to a 60 percent increase in storage capacity, and increased levels of processing power for data intensive workloads such as business intelligence and big data applications.

Built on the same platform as existing NIMBOXX solutions-which combine compute, storage, networking and security into a single system-the AU-110x delivers extreme ease of use and high performance, while reducing overall data center costs.

NIMBOXX also unveiled high availability across its MeshOS operating environment, ensuring data resiliency and continued operation of critical workloads with as few as two nodes. MeshOS enables NIMBOXX ‘Private Cloud in a Box' functionality with direct control over all hardware in the system, which optimizes compute resource utilization and delivers high levels of I/O performance. 

"I am very excited about the latest version of NIMBOXX MeshOS.  We are a recent customer and the ease of use and performance is what initially sold us on NIMBOXX.  With MeshOS 1.3, we have the additional peace of mind knowing that the new high availability features will protect our data and ensure application uptime. The fact that NIMBOXX delivers this functionality with as few as two nodes means budget constrained businesses of all types can afford the benefits of a hyperconverged infrastructure," Justin Graves, IT Analyst at Area Agency on Aging.

The NIMBOXX AU-110x features:

  • More than 360,000 IOPS-two times the IOPS of the AU-110
  • Storage capacity of 9.6 TB-a 60 percent increase from the AU-110
  • Two 10 GbE ports plus four 1 GbE ports
  • Flexibility to deploy in a mesh in any combination (with the AU-110)
  • Deployment in under 10 minutes

Features of the NIMBOXX MeshOS 1.3 include:

  • High Availability offering fail-over protection against loss of node connectivity
  • Advanced mesh health and utilization reporting.
  • Group select/action support for common workload tasks (pause, migrate, etc.)
  • Support for integrating external third-party VMs

"The NIMBOXX hyperconverged appliance family, with the new MeshOS, provides superior price and performance when running both legacy and newer scale-out business workloads," said Andy Salo, vice president of product management at NIMBOXX. "These additional hardware and software capabilities not only allow our users to more effectively address the demands of mission critical workloads, but continue to deliver the simplicity, value and ease of use that they've come to expect from NIMBOXX."
