Why the best storage solutions are timeless


When it comes to your storage solution, are you burying your head in the sand?

It’s a key part of your IT strategy and, if you get it wrong, you’ll waste money, suffer from continuous downtime, and lack the scalability you need to adapt to business demands. You can also forget about integrating new technologies and future-proofing your IT infrastructure.

However, with a solution like HPE’s Timeless Storage, you can have a platform to overcome these challenges and support business growth.  Created around our industry-leading Nimble Storage system, you can deliver storage easily and painlessly even as your business needs increase and evolve over time.

Let’s look a little closer at the specific benefits Timeless Storage has to offer.



Cost certainty throughout your storage lifecycle

Nothing flat lines business growth like unforeseen costs, in fact 82 percent of businesses fail because of poor cash flow.

So, it’s critical to choose a storage solution that is cost-effective both now and in the future.

Cost savings with Timeless Storage are continuous because there are no ‘rip and replace’ upgrade cycles. This is thanks to the HPE Nimble Storage arrays which easily scale with your business.

Guaranteed flat support pricing also ensures cost certainty. So, as your needs change and your storage infrastructure grows, you won’t suffer from inflated support costs.


Limitless scalability in any environment

With new technologies such as machine learning and advanced analytics requiring more and more big data, you need to know you can expand your storage capabilities on-demand.

With Timeless Storage, this scalability is a core feature. Because HPE Nimble Storage arrays are cloud-ready, you have the flexibility to create the exact hybrid and multi-cloud environments you need. And, once you’re in the cloud, it’s easy to move data in any direction between flash arrays and the public cloud thanks to HPE’s Cloud Volumes.

When you use HPE’s Nimble Storage, you also get more data per terabyte of flash storage than other all-flash arrays, as well as industry-leading capacity efficiency. This sets Timeless Storage apart from other platforms, where scalability can often be limited when you reach a certain point.


Unparalleled uptime and support

With the average per hour cost of downtime running at £250,000, a storage solution that minimises downtime is a priority.

Timeless Storage ticks this box too by guaranteeing uptime 99.9999% of the time. All new and existing arrays get this as standard and at no extra cost. To further guarantee this high level of uptime, you get credit as compensation if you receive anything less than the ‘six 9s’.

With uptime guaranteed, you’ll save money, and sleep well at night knowing that your critical applications are always running.


A storage solution that ages like fine wine

Every IT department has plates to spin, and it’s often difficult to find a low-cost storage solution that supports your IT strategy, without the need for time-consuming management and maintenance.

But choosing a solution like Timeless Storage means you get the scalability and cost-effectiveness, your IT department needs to anchor innovation and growth.

It’s a solution that’s timeless because it delivers the storage experience your business needs, even as your application demands increase. All the while, it remains as simple and painless to use as the first day you deployed it.
