HPE Introduces AI-Driven Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced predictive analytics and various other ease of management features to its HPE SimpliVity hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) platform.

The company announced that its InfoSight software is now available on the SimpliVity platform. InfoSight is HPE cloud-based service. It leverages the Analytics and Machine Learning to help customers manage resources and prevent and predict issues.

The two other ease of management features is one-click software upgrades and support for the long term data storage.

The company has built tight integration between the HPE’s StoreOnce backup and equipment appliance. The integration makes it simpler for customers to store archival data, says the announcement.

In the growing hyper-converged infrastructure market, HPE competitors include the market leaders Nutanix, Cisco, and Dell EMC. Hyper-Converged Infrastructure combines the networking, server storage into one appliance.

Executive Opinion

McLeod Glass, VP & General Manager, SimpliVity and Composable Software, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, said, "The future of HCI is AI-driven, and HPE has the most advanced intelligence. HCI makes life easy for enterprises, but unresolved complexities still occur. HPE has rethought HCI with HPE InfoSight at the heart. This global intelligence is truly a game changer for customers as they shift from first-generation HCI to intelligent HCI with HPE."

Warwick Brown, Infrastructure Architecture & Security Lead, Carlisle Homes, said, "The extra efficiency that HPE InfoSight brings to HPE SimpliVity is awesome. InfoSight predicts and reports on metrics that my team cares about – where capacity is being used in clusters, hosts, even at the VM level, and when we might run out of space. That saves us lots of time."

HPE SimpliVity integration with InfoSight

HCl has enabled software-defined automation, which makes it simple to deploy and scale infrastructure, but everyone in the industry offers that capability. HPE InfoSight, coupled with the SimpliVity, could differentiate HPE from its competitors.

HPE acquired the InfoSight when the company purchased Nimble Storage in the year 2017. It collects the data from HPE’s global install base and uses the Machine Learning to train predictive analytics models for customers, notes the announcement.

InfoSight, which is available free for SimpliVity customers with active support contracts, offers the three categories of capabilities today.

As for the other HPE announcement, the one-click HCI cluster upgrades allow enterprises to easily keep the entire SimpliVity software stack – hypervisor, firmware, and SimpliVity software, up to date with one click of the mouse.

HPE GreenLake also introduces an option to consume SimpliVity as-a-Service. HPE SimpliVity is optimized for edge computing and provides single-click edge-to-core VM mobility and recover along with zero-administration, notes the announcement.
