SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 11 — Nimbus Data Systems, Inc., the leader in Sustainable Storage, today announced that it has been recognized with multiple industry awards for Nimbus' ground-breaking line of intelligent flash memory storage systems. The Flash Memory Summit selected the Nimbus S-Class as the Best of Show award winner for 2012 in the category of Most Innovative Flash Memory Customer Implementation. Nimbus also won the 2012 Market Leader title in multiple categories in IT Brand Pulse's August 2012 Brand Leader Surveys. Nimbus emerged as Market Leader for both Flash NAS SSDs and All Flash Unified SSDs. Nimbus further swept the six remaining brand leader categories: price, performance, reliability, service, support and innovation.

"At the 7th year of the Flash Memory Summit, the Awards Committee was impressed with the increasing level of innovation with using flash memory for customer applications that deliver solid state performance at price points equivalent to traditional 15K hard drive arrays," said Jay Kramer, Chairman of the Awards Program and President of Network Storage Advisors, Inc. "We are proud to select Nimbus Flash Memory arrays for the Best of Show Innovation Award based on achieving impressive performance and reduced CapEx and OpEx costs at enterprise customer implementations."

"All flash SSDs are following the evolution of disk arrays to unified SAN/NAS systems with a rich suite of storage management software surrounding a high-performance hardware core," said Frank Berry, CEO of IT Brand Pulse. "The results of the 2012 SSD brand leader surveys indicate that IT professionals recognize Nimbus Data as the incumbent leader in the All Flash Unified SAN/NAS SSD category."

"We are delighted to earn further industry and customer recognition as the pioneer of intelligent flash memory systems," stated Thomas Isakovich, CEO of Nimbus Data. "Nimbus flash memory solutions are redefining industry standards in solid state performance, resiliency and efficiency, advancing efficient datacenters for companies like eBay, Lockheed Martin and many more. With the market for flash memory systems expanding rapidly, and newcomers and industry incumbents now following the trend, our technology maturity and future-proof architecture stand out prominently, enabling our customers to realize the full potential of this disruptive technology."
