HPE Primera Valuable Features

The features that I have found most valuable are the artificial intelligence for the storage inside of the software and firmware because customers do not like functionalities that require manual interruption. This feature is very good for the technical work required to move from manual interactive to automatic, because when solutions provide suggestions, improvements, or notifications, and you can click them automatically, this is a good solution.

One of the most valuable features is the ease of deployment. Integration with the compute capacity is good, as this is just the storage component. Orchestration and management are good. The performance and capacity-based costs are also good. Another advantage is that HPE sells everything. This includes all of the capabilities of the hardware, like replication, snapshot, and other specific features. They are all included from the get-go, as opposed to everything being separate and in another budget. When you buy it, you can do whatever you have to be able to do with it out of the box.

The most valuable feature is the ease of deployment. The integration with the compute capacity because this is just the storage side. The orchestrations and management, and the performance and cost per capacity. Another advantage is that HPE sells everything. All of the capabilities of the hardware such as replication, snapshot, and the specific features are all included from the start as opposed to being on another license.

In my opinion, HPE is making good progress and moving ahead with InfoSight, which is predictive analytics and artificial intelligence. I think that this is one of the selling points for their storage products and it comes at no extra cost. InfoSight is built by gathering intelligence from all of the storage solutions, worldwide. If the AI is being used here in Malta, locally, as it would with InfoSight, then it would use baseline data from the whole world to make predictions. It is really robust. Cases are opened automatically and they give you trend analysis as well. Anything that helps administratively for a data center is important, and Primera gives you both efficiency and effectiveness.

Our customers have given very positive feedback about InfoSign, which is the management software for this solution. Primera has good performance and the compression is also good. It integrates well with other software including Docker and Kubernetes. It is easy to expand. View full review »
