HPE storage keeps getting smarter

We have exciting announcements coming this week from HPE Discover Madrid—but only one truly changes everything. Drum roll, please. . . as HPE delivers the world’s most intelligent storage for your hybrid cloud world. 

Intelligent Storage_HPE Discover annc_blog.jpgHPE storage keeps getting smarter. Yes, it a bold statement—but we can back it up with everything that we are doing in storage today. Intelligence needs to extend across your entire storage solution in order to unlock your data’s potential. Intelligence storage must go beyond predictive analytics and provide you with storage that is AI-driven, built for cloud, and delivered as-a-service. 

Start with how our storage is AI-driven

AI-driven HPE storage is intelligent because it is self-managing, self-healing, and self-optimizing. At HPE, we understand that your business may not want to deal with storage infrastructure on a daily basis. HPE InfoSight frees IT from the day-to-day infrastructure hassle. It predicts and prevents problems automatically by resolving issues before they are even known. HPE InfoSight uses artificial intelligence (AI) to monitor your entire infrastructure stack to enable autonomous and context-aware data management.

Thats why global cloud services provider iland uses HPE InfoSight to ensure it has an ideal storage environment by balancing performance, cost, and resources. iLand even accelerated new customer onboarding down to minutes with HPE InfoSight to support business growth.

How being build for the cloud makes our storage more intelligent

Being built for the cloud helps our customers quickly extract actionable insights by ensuring that their data is available for any workload located anywhere, throughout its entire lifecycle. For example, when Carteret County Schools, a public school sysem on the U.S. North Carolina coast frequently hit by hurricanes, began to plan a hybrid IT strategy, it realized it needed high-performing storage and offsite data protection all in one easy-to-manage solution. It deployed HPE Nimble Storage and HPE Cloud Volumes to provide the peace of mind that comes with knowing that even if hit with a disaster, the school system could recover its most critical data. This case study tells the story in more detail: HPE Nimble Storage delivers performance and data protection for Carteret County Schools

What the as-a-service experience means when it comes to storage

Like natural disasters, data is unpredictable. It is unpredictable in both growth and usage, meaning that it is nearly impossible for businesses to plan one-to-two years out. Many customers over-provision—and risk wasting capital and misaligning costs to the business. To address this challenge, HPE storage now delivers an as-a-service experience. With HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity, our customers receive more flexibility to align their specific consumption and investment needs. They get scalability and simplified IT operations—all in a pay-per-use model.

Much like how Carteret County Schools needs to take hurricane season into account when strategizing storage, YOOX Net-A-Porter (YNAP) needs to plan its storage consumption around the holiday season. The world’s leading online fashion retailer has nearly 30 million shoppers visit its online store every month. During peak shopping season, the company receives an order every 1.4 seconds. HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity makes it much easier to manage the budget, because storage costs are now much more predictable. Check out the complete case study: YNAP powers online retail stores with HPE 3PAR Storage and HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity
