Nimble Storage Predictive Flash Platform Underpins Hutchinson Clinic Patient Care System

Healthcare Facility Adds Predictive All Flash Array to Provide Faster Access to Electronic Health Records for Staff and Patients

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 6, 2016) - Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), the leader in predictive flash storage, today announced that Hutchinson Clinic has selected the Nimble Storage Predictive Flash Platform, comprising of Adaptive Flash and All Flash arrays, to support a new disaster recovery (DR) strategy, and accelerate the performance of electronic health records, billing, and practice management systems. By improving the Clinic's IT operations, the staff will be able to access patient-related data faster, allowing them to better provide patients with comprehensive medical and surgical care. The Hutchinson Clinic, based in Hutchinson, Kansas, is comprised of more than 90 physicians and providers and nearly 650 employees. To meet the requirements of evolving healthcare laws, the Clinic modified the structure of its records system which now enables high levels of analytics and data mining. The Clinic's poorly designed IT infrastructure lacked the ability to scale, forcing the IT organization to constantly hit limits on its database servers. To address the challenge, the Clinic deployed Nimble Adaptive Flash CS400 and CS700 arrays, achieving greater performance and non-disruptive scalability. Moving forward, the IT organization intends to take full advantage of the Nimble Unified Flash Fabric which enables flash performance for all enterprise applications by unifying All Flash and Adaptive Flash arrays into a single consolidation architecture with common data services. Working closely with ISG Technology, the Clinic has purchased and deployed the All Flash AF7000 array to support massive databases for electronic health records, patient check-in and billing systems. The Adaptive Flash CS700 supports more than 200 virtual machines running file, exchange and web servers. To support its new DR strategy, the Clinic will also deploy the Adaptive Flash CS400 as a replication target and the CS235 as a Veeam back up repository. The entire infrastructure will be deployed as a SmartStack reference architecture-based solution, comprising of Cisco UCS integrated infrastructure and the Nimble arrays. "As a Nimble Storage partner for the last five years, we experienced great success with the Adaptive Flash CS-Series arrays. We expect the same, if not more, interest in the Nimble All-Flash arrays based on the unique benefits of the platform," said Miles Franz, director, strategic solutions, ISG Technology. "Hutchinson Clinic was ready for a highly scalable storage solution that was able to support a cost-effective data protection strategy. Nimble was able to meet these requirements, while providing simplified management and the added features of InfoSight. I believe the depth and granularity of Nimble's predictive analytics will fuel rapid adoption of the Unified Flash Fabric by our customers." "There are four things that really stand out about our Nimble deployment -- ease of deployment, the interface is easy to configure and manage, and the proactive support," said Christopher Swartz, senior network and server analyst at Hutchinson Clinic. "Most importantly, the performance is unmatchable. Our staff is working with patients in real-time and need to retrieve patient records quickly. In migrating to Nimble arrays we saw all data-related delays go away -- no more patients waiting to be checked in, delay in doctors pulling up records -- all data is flowing faster. This deployment gave me the confidence to expand my operations without having to worry about any system performance impact." InfoSight predictive analytics provides Hutchinson Clinic's IT team with greater transparency, including the ability to see the performance of specific virtual machines (VMs).  "The VMVision feature allows my team to see if there are specific VMs that have poor performance, and the team uses those analytics to see if things look too busy," said Swartz. "With InfoSight I have a lot of power at my fingertips, a lot more than I had before, which allows me to do my job more efficiently. Previously I couldn't tell how busy the arrays were, but now with the analytics I get from Nimble it's a much more powerful appliance."

Nimble Storage Research Study Reveals U.S. Companies May Be Losing as Much as $7.5B of Worker Time Annually

New Survey and Customer Data Detail How Data Sciences and Machine Learning Can Predict and Prevent Application Downtime and Close the App-Data Gap

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 27, 2016) - Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), the leader in predictive flash storage, today released global survey results revealing the impact application performance delays have on company performance. The 'Mind the Gap' report, which Nimble Storage produced in collaboration with Oxford Economics, found that delays in propagating and refreshing application data -- the app-data gap -- can cause significant productivity drains and economic losses. Based on a calculation derived from the survey results, U.S. companies may be losing as much as $7.5 billion of worker time annually due to delays and downtime. Tweet this: Companies may be losing $7.5 billion of worker time annually due to delays and downtime: http://spr.ly/6019BmPCx The report surveyed nearly 3,000 IT professionals and business application users based in the U.S., Germany, U.K., Australia, Singapore and Southeast Asia. Nearly two-thirds of all respondents and 76 percent of U.S. respondents reported that the speed of applications they use significantly impacts their ability to perform their best in the workplace. IT professionals, however, don't appear to be aware of the magnitude of the problems residing within their own companies, allowing the small delays from the app-data gap to add up to big headaches. While more than 40 percent of business users say they avoid using some software applications at work because they run too slowly, only 18 percent of IT professionals think their users are either unsatisfied or very unsatisfied with the way software systems work at their companies. A corresponding report, "Can Machine Learning Prevent Application Downtime?" analyzes data collected by Nimble Storage and points to the most pertinent hurdles impacting the speed at which companies access the data that powers applications. Mind the Gap: How Application Delays Affect Company Performance 

Key survey findings:

U.S. companies may be losing as much as $7.5 billion of worker time annually due to delays and downtime.
More than 40 percent of business users avoid using certain applications at work because they run too slowly.
Nearly three-fourths (71 percent) of all business users experience some level of delays while accessing software at work, with 28 percent saying they experience delays "all the time."
Over 50 percent of all respondents say they are less tolerant of delays than they were five years ago.





Millennials Experience the Effects of the App-Data Gap Most

Over three-fourths (77 percent) of millennials say that sub-optimal application performance affects their ability to achieve their personal best, compared with just half of baby boomers and 72 percent of Gen Xers.
Half of millennials surveyed say they've stopped using an application because it runs too slowly -- significantly more than users in other age groups.
Over three-fourths (78 percent) of millennials say they occasionally or constantly experience delays when accessing or inputting information with business software, compared with 60 percent of baby boomers.





Key Regional Findings

Respondents from the U.S. and Southeast Asia are the most demanding of their technology infrastructures. In the U.S. (76 percent) and Southeast Asia (73 percent), the majority of respondents agree that the speed of applications they use significantly affects their ability to perform their best.
Over half (56 percent) of U.S. respondents say they lose more than 10 percent of their workday waiting on technology to deliver the information they need, compared with 42 percent in the U.K., 39 percent in Australia, and 30 percent in Germany.





"It's no mystery why business users expect access to data to be immediate and continuous. The conundrum facing IT decision makers is how to predict and prevent performance bottlenecks before users perceive a slowdown in responsiveness," said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO, Nimble Storage. "The performance bottleneck between the data and the application, which we call the 'app-data gap', negatively impacts employee work time and ultimately impairs business performance. We believe that by bypassing reactive approaches for root cause analysis that typically take days or weeks, IT departments can harness data sciences and machine learning to predict and prevent barriers to data velocity while fully empowering employees to achieve their best."  Can Machine Learning Prevent Application Downtime?

Today's IT infrastructure is full of complexity. A major app-data gap can disrupt data delivery, degrade worker productivity, create customer dissatisfaction and damage a company's overall speed of business and reputation. While it's easy and commonplace to point to data storage as the primary culprit for the app-data gap, the factors leading to application slowdowns come from a range of issues across the infrastructure stack. According to a Nimble Labs Research Report -- which analyzed more than 12,000 cases documenting examples of app-data gap related issues across the Nimble install base of more than 7,500 customers -- 54 percent of all issues have nothing to do with storage. The majority of issues arise from challenges with configuration (28 percent), interoperability (11 percent), non-storage best practices impacting performance (8 percent) and host, compute or VM-related issues (7 percent). Of the 46 percent of storage issues detected, hardware and software problems, software update assistance and performance setbacks are most common. These findings debunk the IT professionals' first instinct that storage infrastructure is the primary cause of application performance issues. This presumption leads IT professionals to implement fast flash-based storage technologies to accelerate performance, but flash alone does not address the 54 percent of unrelated storage issues. To close the app-data gap, Nimble believes IT organizations need to leverage predictive analytics that incorporate both data science and machine learning to optimize the performance and availability of applications. These technologies are designed to help identify poor performance early, minimize or eliminate the effects of an issue, prevent businesses from encountering the same problem as their competitors and continually improve performance and availability for users. The Nimble Storage Predictive Flash platform combines flash performance with InfoSight predictive analytics to deliver data velocity. InfoSight predicts and prevents issues across the IT application-to-storage stack that can significantly slow data delivery. The Predictive Flash platform enables IT organizations to accelerate all applications running across the IT environment and deliver immediate access to information that is essential for enterprises to maintain a competitive edge.
