Nimble Storage has revealed Nimble Cloud Volumes, an enterprise-grade multi-cloud storage service for running applications in Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
According to the company, the first wave of applications moving to the cloud saw organizations implement native cloud applications, mostly web and mobile.
And now, a new wave is taking place in which organizations are starting to migrate test and development instances and even some production instances of traditional workloads to the cloud.
Nimble Cloud Volumes is designed to combine the simplicity of a cloud service with the features and functionality enterprise applications need.
It is also managed with the same simplicity as native cloud storage, but provides the reliability and data durability enterprises expect.
