Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced the release of its artificial intelligence (AI) recommendation engine, HPE InfoSight – designed to simplify and reduce the guesswork in managing infrastructure and improve application reliability.
HPE InfoSight is a predictive analytics platform that brings software-defined intelligence to the data center with the ability to predict and prevent infrastructure problems before they happen. Leveraging advanced machine learning, the new capabilities for HPE InfoSight would pave the path toward an autonomous data center.
Every second, HPE InfoSight analyzes millions of sensors across the globally connected installed base and uses this data to predict and prevent problems from storage to applications. HPE InfoSight would ensure reliable performance and application uptime, helping to deliver greater than 99.9999% of guaranteed availability.
“HPE InfoSight marks the first time a major storage vendor has been able to predict issues and proactively resolve them before a customer is even aware of the problem,” said Bill Philbin, Senior Vice President, HPE GM Storage. “As applications increasingly drive today’s businesses, we need to help customers move toward a self-managing IT model. HPE InfoSight enables IT to spend more time on projects that add value to the business rather than on troubleshooting issues.”
Autonomous Data Center
HPE InfoSight lays the groundwork for an autonomous data center with the new AI recommendation engine. Building on its predictive capabilities, HPE InfoSight now preemptively advises IT how to avoid issues, improve performance, and optimize available resources. The recommendations are based on advanced machine learning that leverages almost a decade of data science expertise and rich telemetry collected from more than 10,000 HPE Nimble Storage customers. HPE InfoSight would continuously learn, making customers’ systems smarter and more reliable.
HPE also announced the first release of HPE InfoSight for HPE 3PAR, setting in motion their promise to extend machine learning across the HPE storage and server portfolio.
HPE is working to minimize disruptions or delays to applications and lost time through the AI and predictive analytics capabilities of HPE InfoSight.
This first release of HPE InfoSight for 3PAR makes available the following capabilities:
- Cross-stack analytics – For 3PAR customers running the latest release of the 3PAR operating system2, HPE InfoSight will also provide IT the ability to resolve performance problems and pinpoint the root cause of issues between the storage and host virtual machines (VMs). It also provides visibility to locate “noisy neighbor” VMs.
- Global visibility – Through a new cloud portal that combines HPE Infosight and HPE StoreFront Remote, all current 3PAR customers with systems that are remotely connected will see detailed performance trending, capacity predictions, health checks and best practice information across all of their 3PAR arrays.
HPE InfoSight with the new AI recommendation engine will be available January 2018 to all HPE Nimble Storage customers with an active support contract at no additional charge.
