    • A Piper Q1 survey of 41 North American and European storage resellers found 44% of Nimble Storage (NYSE:NMBL) resellers were above plan, 22% below plan, and the rest in-line. In addition, Nimble had the highest % of resellers (44%) expecting above-normal Q2 seasonality.
    • The net difference between Nimble resellers that were above and below plan (+22%) was a marked improvement from Q4's -6%, and second only to flash storage array vendor Pure Storage (+50%), which was recently reported to be planning an IPO. Multiple analysts have already reported upstarts such as Nimble and Pure are making larger inroads into the bases of enterprise storage giants.
    • CommVault (NASDAQ:CVLT), on the other hand, had a net difference of -25%, worse than Q4's -13% and the weakest figure in Piper's survey.
    • Nimble rose 4.6% today, while CommVault was nearly flat. CommVault's FQ4 results arrive on May 5.

    • Though it beat FQ3 estimates, CommVault (CVLT -8.9%) noted on its FQ4 CC (transcript) a recent survey "indicates a slower start to 2014."
    • The company also mentioned there are "execution risks" related to its All Things Data strategy, through which the storage backup/recovery software vendor plans to expand into a slew of adjacent storage software markets, including replication, mobile file-sharing, archiving, infrastructure analytics, and health care storage software.
    • CommVault adds it still considers FY14 (ends in March) analyst estimates to be "reasonable," and predicts it will see "solid double-digit revenue and EBIT growth" in FY15. The company's FY15 revenue consensus already calls for 15.7% growth.
    • Software revenue (drives future services revenue) rose 20% Y/Y in FQ3, even with total revenue growth. CommVault's deferred revenue balance rose 19% Y/Y to $192.8M.
