San Jose, California-based information technology company Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced a complete storage solution, HPE Primera.

HPE Primera leverages an artificial intelligence (AI) platform HPE InfoSight for operations to deliver significant breakthroughs – including 93% less time spent on managing storage, and the ability to predict and prevent issues, and accelerate application performance, the company added.

The company revealed that the new platform is built for high availability with multi-node design, transparent business continuity with HPE peer persistence and data replication. Application-aware data protection via HPE recovery manager central is included, combining with HPE StoreOnce for 15 times faster restore and extending to public cloud for cost-effective, long-term retention by means of HPE cloud bank storage.

“Today’s organizations need a fundamentally new approach to infrastructure operations with an intelligent data strategy. HPE Primera leverages HPE’s unique Intelligent Data Platform to deliver unmatched simplicity, availability, and performance for mission-critical applications, so businesses can focus on harnessing data to drive their business forward,” said Rajesh Dhar, senior director, hybrid IT at HPE India.

HPE said that the businesses seek to bring new mission-critical applications to market, and support existing ones in order to accelerate speed of business, agility and innovation.

HPE InfoSight is now deeply integrated on HPE Primera with AI models trained in the cloud that are now embedded in the array for real-time analytics to ensure consistent performance for application workloads, the company said.

The company also said that the new platform is simple to own, install, manage, and upgrade. HPE Primera comes standard with HPE proactive care and a 100% data availability guarantee without requiring special contracts or onerous terms.

The new platform advances the HPE Intelligent Data Platform, a portfolio of products and solutions designed to accelerate application performance, transform data management, harness the agility of all clouds, and empower businesses by unlocking hidden insights within data in real time. The Intelligent Data Platform helps customers transition from delivering storage to unlocking business value with intelligent data, it added.

Last month, telecom operator Vodafone Idea Ltd. had partnered with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to use the latter’s next-generation operation support systems (OSS) platform for its service and network operations centre (SNOC).

In April, the company had partnered with cloud computing software firm Nutanix to provide hybrid cloud as a service.

In a statement, the companies said that the offering was aimed at giving customers freedom of choice to adopt a hybrid cloud strategy.
