Around the Storage Block

What is HPE Nimble Storage dHCI?


In the weeks leading up to Discover, I didn't have a chance to get a deep understanding of our new solution, HPE Nimble What is HPE Nimble Storage dHCI podcast.jpgStorage dHCI. I had a high-level understanding and of course I had my dHCI Chalk Talk I did, but I needed more. 

At Discover, I was hanging around the demo, listening to some of the conversations our product experts were having with customers and partners that were coming by to hear more. It was interesting to get their perspective. The biggest "aha moment" for me was hearing that when a customer has dHCI, support for the ProLiant servers used in the cluster fall into the same legendary support that HPE Nimble Storage does. That HPE Nimble Storage dHCI in rack_smallr.jpgmeans there is no level 1 or 2 (L1 or L2) support and any support call gets immediately routed to an L3 engineer. Well, that just gets me excited!

And hearing what I was in the booth made me realize that my Chalk Talk didn't go deep enough to really understand what we're doing with Nimble Storage dHCI. So I of course did a podcast. Joining me on this ATSB Podcast is Bharath Ram. Bharath works in our Tech Marketing team and also has blogged on our HPE Storage Tech Insiders blog

The podcast with Bharath is about 15 minutes and worth listening to all of it.
