Nimble Array CS1000 compression ratio

Last Updated: 8/1/17

I am happy I switched to Nimble Adaptive Storage Arrays for my organization, but I was disappointed that I did not get the amount of storage savings in compression that we guessed. During the pre-sale / marketing portion of our nimble purchase we were told to expect 1.3x to 2.0x compression savings. We are only getting 1.22x. I thought I would share for others who are doing capactiy planning with a migration to Nimble.

This is about 75 VMs. Some large, some small.

Our data is very mixed (SQL, Exchange, documents, photos, videos, etc...). A few volumes are VMs running Windows 2012 Dedup, so they do not compress at all.
