Nimble Storage on Demand: The Storage Industry's First Utility-Based Storage-on-Demand Pricing Model
Thursday December 4, 11:00 am, PST
Join this brief 30-minute live webinar to learn about Nimble Storage On Demand, the industry's first true pay-per-use pricing model for on-site storage — the only on-demand pricing model that bills you for your actual storage usage and doesn’t lock you into a long-term contract.
- Pay for what you use. Don’t pay for what you don’t use. Billings accurately reflect usage — even when it shrinks — eliminating wasted resources and saving money.
- Never run out. A 10 percent capacity buffer is built into — and automatically maintained — for every configuration, even as your usage grows. Nimble automatically ships additional capacity before it is needed; you don’t pay for it until it’s used.
- No excessive lock-ins. After a one-year commitment, you can select a flexible month-to-month subscription.
