Nimesa data protection for Pure Storage integrates tightly with Pure Storage’s snapshot, replication and clone capabilities. Nimesa enables admins to create fast, space-efficient, point-in-time virtual copies of applications and virtual machines that can be used as part of a backup and recovery strategy or make available production data to various secondary use cases.
