I am particularly proud to share the news that HPE has been recognized as a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice.1 Gartner Peer Insights recognition is extremely valuable because the ratings are based on actual customer reviews. Real world customers have rated HPE 4.7 out of 5 stars for ease of deployment, product capabilities, and service and support. For the HPE Storage engineering team, there’s more to these reviews than stars. Customer comments often include suggestions for future features, configurations, and use cases.

Customers influence HPE product development

Through the Gartner Peer Insights website, customers compare leading storage solutions and provide HPE product development teams with valuable feedback, helping us to rethink the nature of storage and reshape product roadmaps in new, powerful directions. Recent advancements that deliver an even better customer experience include:

  • HPE Primera, the intelligent platform for mission-critical applications, delivers resiliency and 100% availability in enterprise datacenters. Just last week HPE announced support for replication over Fibre Channel or IP. This latest capability provides the flexibility of choosing the storage protocol that best fits your disaster recovery and business continuity requirements.
  • HPE InfoSight artificial intelligence is built into HPE Nimble dHCI, helping to elevate it to a “near-perfect enterprise storage solution,” according to customers. Now HPE offers InfoSight predictive analytics with HPE SimpliVity as well. The self-managing, self-optimizing, and self-healing AI service is available across every HPE HCI system, from the datacenter to the edge, redefining the hyperconverged experience.
  • HPE StoreServ Management Console (SSMC) 3.6 now offers an enhanced AI-driven approach to storage management for both HPE 3PAR and HPE Primera. By continually learning and monitoring daily storage operations, SSMC eliminates the guesswork and time spent diagnosing bottlenecks and optimizing performance.
