The Power of Predictive Infrastructure comes to HPE Converged Architecture 700
By: Matt Miller, Product Marketing

Is your infrastructure predictive? HPE Converged Architecture 700 with Nimble Storage radically simplifies your environment with modular, repeatable building blocks, powered by predictive analytics.

When Nimble Storage was acquired by HPE, we got right to work on combining the benefits of our respective architectures: Nimble with its Predictive Cloud platform and HPE with its industry-leading HPE BladeSystem, HPE ProLiant rack server and networking platforms.

Together, we wanted to chart a course in developing converged solutions that would go beyond anything that had been done before by bringing in the Power of Predictive. And now we’re introducing the HPE Converged Architecture 700 with Nimble Storage—the industry’s only “predictive” converged infrastructure solution.

Meet Converged Architecture 700

The HPE Converged Architecture 700 is designed to offer modular, repeatable building blocks for application infrastructure deployments, requiring less time, less cost and less risk—with the flexibility of deploying “your way.” By adding Nimble Storage into the mix, HPE is delivering a radically simple and cloud-ready solution, leveraging Nimble all-flash and adaptive (hybrid) flash arrays for the Converged Architecture 700 series.

However, bringing a reliably fast flash storage platform to the table is not enough to ensure applications are getting the data they need, when they need it. You need predictive analytics to see, predict and learn across your entire infrastructure in order to simplify life for your IT staff and ensure your applications have the required performance and availability. Nimble has been a pioneer in leveraging the power of analytics through our InfoSight engine, as evidenced by the greater than six-nines of storage uptime enjoyed by the entire Nimble installed base.

What do we mean by ‘Predictive Infrastructure’?

We hear our customers talking about wanting to spend less time managing infrastructure. That means not only less time spent managing, but also less time consumed by diagnosing issues, fixing things and constantly tuning to accommodate changing requirements. And that leaves more time to spend doing things that to move your business forward or trigger creative ideas that drive new business growth.

To solve this problem, Nimble introduced the InfoSight predictive analytics platform as a new approach to making infrastructure predictive. Predictive Infrastructure allows you to move beyond traditional solutions and gives you an infrastructure that:

  • Leverages analytics to slash that wasted time spent on managing mundane issues
  • Sends the fire truck before you smell smoke
  • Predicts and prevents 86% of your issues with no intervention needed by your staff
  • Virtually eliminates dealing with Level 1 and Level 2 support issues
  • Proactively troubleshoots your entire stack, up to the VM level
  • Lowers your business risk (at the end of the day, this’s really what we’re all after, right?)

You can’t accomplish this by going the traditional route. You need a new approach.

HPE Converged Architecture 700 with Nimble Storage allows you to spend less time managing routine issues, but also ensures that your applications get optimal performance and availability. We’re excited to begin delivering on a roadmap of solutions that join one of the world’s top server platforms with the most innovative storage arrays and InfoSight predictive analytics. Think of the possibilities!

Stay tuned to this space to realize the Power of Predictive
