Going above and beyond with theses extra inclusions

In every SmartStack you get the following powerful inclusions:



Enjoy faster and simpler deployment. SmartSetup is a tool designed to make initial setup of the Smartstack UCS and Nimble components very simple and to the standards of the Nimble Setup guide.

SmartSetup creates pools, policies, volumes, volume mapping and boot policies.

SmartSnap & SmartReplicate

Improve Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) & Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) without additonal cost.

SmartSnap & SmartReplicate are Nimble’s integrated Data Protection tools. Allow for compressed, thin snapshots to be taken more often and kept for longer.

Zero copy clones can be created using the snapshots for fast, space efficient test/dev environments, supports one-to-one, plus many-to-one replication.


Increase the security and compliance of your data. SmartSecure is an encryption-at rest-feature, which allows for the enablement of per volume or per array encryption of data.

SmartSecure can be combined with SmartReplicate to provide secure replication of compressed and encrypted data.
