HPE Nimble Storage HF20 42TB (21x2Tb)

Hi,

1) I would like to know how many disk size are usable for vmware datastore with this  configuration ?

I need min 24 Tb ( 12 Tb per vmware farm)

2) There are plugins or tools for monitoring nimble with Nagios and cacti ?

Hi!

This system will yield you ~30TiB usable capacity.

Depending on your dataset that you're storing within VMware datastores, you may see upwards of 2-4x data reduction, and we will happily guarantee this figure if you consider Nimble's All Flash configurations under the StoreMore Guarantee..

I'd also highly recommend taking a look at Timeless Storage for Nimble, where every 3 years we will replace your technology for free under the subscription, as well as underwrite at least 10 years of cross-generational support of your purchase.

You can integrate Nimble using REST APIs as well as SNMP MIBs. There are also community created plugins for both of these tools (see example here: https://community.hpe.com/t5/Array-Setup-and-Networking/Monitoring-with-Nagios/td-p/6983890#.XTYEK0d7nmF)

I plan to connect to 2 vmware farm on 2 HPE Nimble with sync replication.

Each farm will use 1 or 2 datastores.

I will have windows and linux server, MysQL, MSSQL server and oracle database.

The largest VM will be a linux server with 5 ou 6 To of data for replace a old NAS server.

I'm not dedup fan, so I don't count on this functionnality, so I hope that the offer and usable disk size will meet my requirement.

regards

Whilst you may not be a fan of dedupe, it runs globally on Nimble systems anyway, has no performance overhead and will yield you returns. We also run compression on this data, too.

If you engage with your local HPE Storage Specialist, they will be able to tell you accurately what data reduction you can expect on our AFAs based on what we see the rest of our customers getting in real world usecases (they power of Infosight) and we will underwrite this for you as part of the StoreMore Guarantee. If we get it wrong - we will give you more flash for free - no messy T&Cs to sign.
