Considering Nimble SANs

Hi,

 

I am considering Nimble as a storage solution for SQL Server 2016 (when it comes out) as well as Hyper-V VMs and file shares.  The largest database I have is about 2 TB.

 

I was wondering what you guys think about Nimble SANs.  How is performance?  I've read that you need to get the cache size right or performance can take a big hit since it's hitting the disks.  How are the features such as snapshots, replication, etc?  Is there any downtime in upgrading firmware?

 

Any insight is greatly appreciated!
