HPE new platform uses AI to solve storage pain points
HPE Primera leverages AI from HPE InfoSight to reduce time spent on managing storage
HPE has announced a new storage platform that leverages artificial intelligence to predict and prevent issues and accelerate application performance.
HPE Primera leverages AI from HPE InfoSight to deliver 93% less time spent on managing storage, according to the company.
“Intelligence changes everything,” said Milan Shetti, SVP and general manager, HPE Storage. “Today’s organisations need a fundamentally new approach to infrastructure operations with an intelligent data strategy. HPE Primera leverages HPE’s Intelligent Data Platform to deliver unmatched simplicity, availability, and performance for mission-critical applications, so businesses can focus on harnessing data to drive their business forward.”
Businesses seek to bring new mission-critical applications to market, and support existing ones in order to accelerate speed of business, agility and innovation. However, it is nearly impossible for IT to keep up with these demands because they remain tied down administering, tuning, and supporting infrastructure. As a result, IT is forced to sacrifice agility for reliability.
HPE Primera wants to eliminate the compromises by blending capabilities from across HPE’s storage portfolio to provide simplicity, availability and performance.
Among HPE Primera’s key features is a services-centric OS that decouples data services so they can be deployed, upgraded, or restarted independently.
Customers also have the choice to deploy HPE Primera as a service with a fully managed experience and pay only for what they use through HPE GreenLake.
Finally, HPE Primera is architected for high availability with multi-node design, business continuity with HPE Peer Persistence and data replication. Application-aware data protection via HPE Recovery Manager Central is included, combining with HPE StoreOnce for 15X faster restore and extending to public cloud via HPE Cloud Bank Storage.
HPE Intelligent Data Platform
HPE Primera extends the HPE Intelligent Data Platform, a portfolio of products and software designed to help customers transition from delivering storage to unlocking business value with intelligent data.
The HPE Intelligent Data Platform leverages HPE InfoSight AI and machine learning platform, to deliver autonomous, self-managing data storage. HPE InfoSight has analysed application patterns across 1,250 trillion data points over the last decade to predict and prevent disruptions across storage, servers, and virtual machines, resulting in savings of over 1.5 million hours of lost productivity due to downtime, the company says. HPE InfoSight provides the intelligent foundation for all of the HPE storage products, including HPE Primera, creating an end-to-end AI pipeline for self-managing storage.
