It should be ready for partners within 90 days and give bring the cloud-based predictive analytics platform to 3Par. HPE is hoping that the move, which comes just months after closing the Nimble acquisition will shake up the storage market.
It will be the first time a major storage vendor will be able to predict storage failures and “proactively resolve them” across an end-to-end portfolio that spans the market from small/medium businesses to the enterprise.
InfoSight was the “crown jewels” of HPE’s $1 billion acquisition of Nimble, Neri said. The AI power of the platform provides HPE and its partners with a big competitive advantage against any and all competitors.
He added that it was proof HPE was delivering its strategy to make hybrid IT simple.
“The first thing partners are going to see is a consistent experience across Nimble and 3Par with AI, predictive analytics, and predictive maintenance across the entire storage footprint – all attached to our HPE Pointnext”, Neri said.
