2018 was a rockin' good year for HPE primary storage

Come to think of it as I look back on 2018, this has been a pretty exciting year for our primary storage platforms. Here are just a few highlights:

In May, we announced the fifth generation HPE Nimble Storage. This brought our customers a future-proofed enterprise platform that delivers up to 220% better price-performance and the HPE Store More Guarantee, a promise that we provide the industry’s best effective capacity.

In July, we advanced intelligent storage capabilities in 3PAR with AI and cloud automation. This included further integration of HPE InfoSight, the industry’s most experienced AI, to predict and prevent problems across the installed base and automate support resolution. It also included native container integration with Kubernetes, Docker, Mesosphere, and Redshift. 

And at HPE Discover Madrid, we announced HPE Memory-Driven Flash, a new class of enterprise storage for HPE 3PAR and Nimble Storage beyond all-flash that delivers the speed of memory for real-time analytics and AI workloads. With availability now, this makes 3PAR the industry’s first enterprise storage platform turbocharged with storage class memory and NVMe00—with up to 2x faster response times over competing NVMe AFAs. 

It’s been a fun year. And it’s because of our customers and partners that we had this fun. We want to thank you for this honor and recognition and ring in the new year together. Let’s do it again in 2019!
