San Jose, California-based technology major Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has upgraded its intelligent data storage platforms HPE Primera and HPE Nimble Storage by adding artificial intelligence (AI)-driven, auto-correcting and auto optimisation systems. 

This move is part of a comprehensive update of its intelligent data platform. The platform is a cloud-based storage solution that offers real-time solutions that detect issues before they occur.

The upgrades will enable HPE Nimble Storage to deliver faster response times and HPE Primera to provide enhanced on-demand storage automation, according to a statement.

The new updates bring more agility to the platforms, 

“Now more than ever, to maintain business continuity, organisations must protect their data in order to operate efficiently and without disruption. HPE Primera and HPE Nimble Storage customers are able to accelerate innovation and adapt to the changing circumstances of their businesses,” Omer Asad, VP of HPE Primera and HPE Nimble Storage said.

HPE provides cloud-based solutions including intelligent edge, data storage, operations-critical systems, advisory and financial services. For the quarter ended April 30, 2020, the company reported a 16% decline in its revenues to $6.0 billion from $7.1 billion a year ago, a separate statement said.

In April, the company launched a new virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), flexible financing terms for products and new pre-configured solutions for remotely working employees. In the same month, it started a new open-source programme, called Open Distributed Infrastructure Management initiative, to help telecom companies simplify the management and roll out of 5G network infrastructures across geographies.

In March, HPE announced the launch of a new set of open 5G network solutions for telecommunication companies with an optimised telco core, along with edge infrastructure blueprints with the backing of Wi-Fi 6.
