A new class of storage has arrived, one that’s predictive and poised for the future. It is future-proofed, standardized on Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) and storage-class memory (SCM) for speed and performance gains. These storage innovations are powering reliability in enterprise workloads that depend on performance and speed. With more than 4.4 zettabytes of data — and 450 billion business transactions per day by 2020 demand for fast, reliable, and predictive storage couldn’t come at a better time.1
Artificial intelligence (AI) can speed and simplify storage management by eliminating the risk of bottlenecks and downtime. For example, HPE InfoSight is AI software designed to predict and prevent 86 percent of storage problems2 — and guarantee 99.9999 percent availability.3 Companies deploying HPE InfoSight report a decline in the need for IT personnel to be dedicated to storage administration. In fact, HPE InfoSight adopters report a 79 percent lower operating expense for storage-dedicated staff and as many as 26 percent say storage trouble tickets elevated for support are resolved within 15 inutes — significantly reducing downtime risk to data or applications.3
Acceleration is the name of today’s storage game, and the much-touted NVMe interconnect protocol — which is supported on HPE Nimble Storage, powered by Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors — supports high-speed storage that reduces latency and increases system and application performance. The non-volatile memory is directly connected to the CPU via high-speed PCIe lanes, offering two times faster transfer speed than a SATA interface.4 Not only does this accelerate applications, it also extends capability for real-time workload processing in the data center and at the Edge.
Performance and scale take center stage as storage volumes rise. Smart companies looking to get ahead of this increase are looking to SCM. SCM delivers performance that scales beyond current generation solutions, leveraging persistent memory that connects to memory slots within the motherboard, achieving performance gains in read and write operations ideal for powering next-generation applications.3 Not only does this serve today’s needs well, but ensures that storage volumes can keep pace with tomorrow’s innovations, as SCM emerges as a next-in-class storage technology. Here again, HPE Nimble Storage has adopted a futureproofed posture with its SCM-ready configuration built for timeless capacity.
