How to Improve Your Storage Infrastructure with HPE Primera

As organizations rely more and more heavily on real-time data to drive their businesses forward, it’s become essential for them to begin modernizing their storage infrastructure. Further, the mass migration to cloud and hybrid IT models has increased exponentially the demand for large-capacity data storage. But while data-storage formats and capacities have kept pace with modern application needs, the speed at which hard disk drives can access information has barely improved.

This has led many businesses to seek out NVMe-ready tier-zero storage solutions that are able to support the performance requirements of today’s enterprise applications.

This is where HPE Primera from Hewlett Packard Enterprise can help.

What is HPE Primera?

HPE Primera is an innovative data-storage solution designed for simplicity, resiliency, and performance when running mission-critical applications and workloads. Optimized for NVMe, HPE Primera is a parallel, multi-node, all-active platform that achieves predictably high performance at extremely low latency.

How Does HPE Primera Improve Your Storage Infrastructure?

HPE Primera is the next evolution of 3PAR. Designed for agile environments and backed with a 100%-availability guarantee, HPE Primera optimizes infrastructure operations through advanced artificial intelligence.

HPE Primera reduces downtime and eliminates disruption due to storage system upgrades by allowing feature-modification without requiring significant changes to the operating system. This enables faster updates than traditional storage systems, and supports the rapid availability of data-driven applications. HPE Primera’s architecture uses inline data compression and relies on automated algorithms that optimize cache and improve the overall throughput of storage media.

HPE Primera also leverages predictive acceleration techniques via an AI/ML-driven engine that holds workloads accountable for meeting SLA terms. This intelligent, streamlined design helps identify inconsistencies in low-latency solid-state storage solutions and improves utilization and consistency of subroutines without impacting the end-user experience.
