IT NEEDS INTELLIGENCE TO KEEP UP WITH MODERN DEMANDS
We know every organization, regardless of industry, size, or age has workloads essential to their business. These mission-critical workloads represent the keys for you to unlock innovation, get ahead, and ultimately disrupt the status quo.But it’s near impossible for IT to keep up with the demands of both new and existing mission-critical applications because they’re consumed with provisioning, troubleshooting, and supporting infrastructure.Sacrificing resiliency for agility is no longer acceptable. Now is the time for intelligent storage that manages itself for every mission-critical app of today and tomorrow.

HPE Primera delivers an on-demand experience that gives you the agility of cloud with autonomous operations. Deploy, manage, and scale your storage in 93% less time2 with a platform that sets up in minutes, tunes itself, and upgrades transparently without any hassle.The HPE Primera OS brings advanced data services with radical simplicity to your mission-critical apps. Unlike traditional storage platforms that are weighed down by a monolithic OS and force forklift upgrades for new features, this services-centric OS is developed to help minimize risk and be transparent to applications. Installs and upgrades are so easy they may be done by only you in minutes for faster access to new innovation.Additionally, HPE Primera with HPE GreenLake grow with your business needs. Fulfill your IT needs with elastic consumption and scale delivered as a service and pay as you go.
APP-AWARE RESILIENCY FOR 100% AVAILABILITY GUARANTEED
HPE Primera delivers app-aware resiliency that sees ahead to prevent disruptions to help ensure zero downtime of mission-critical applications.The first layer of protection starts with an all-active resilient design center developed to maintain availability while delivering predictable performance at all times. In addition, the intelligent and advanced software protects against silent data corruption providing end-to-end data integrity. HPE Primera facilitates business continuity with automatic site failover, as well as modernizes and extends data protection to the cloud.Unlike traditional storage that stops here, HPE Primera also uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), powered by HPE InfoSight, to predict and prevent disruptions across storage, servers, and virtual machines. Over the past decade, HPE InfoSight has analyzed application patterns across 1,2503 trillion data points, transforming how storage is managed and supported. Thousands of disruptions have been prevented saving our customers over 1.5 million work hours.4 This end-to-end app-aware approach for resiliency is why every HPE Primera is backed by a 100% Availability Guarantee.
AC C E L E R AT E A P P L I C AT I O N S WITH ALL-NVME
HPE Primera features a unique, massively parallel, multinode, and all-active platform with all volumes active on all media, controllers, and host ports atall times. You achieve unconstrained scalability for consolidating traditional and next-generation mission-critical applications with support for all-NVMe and flexible all flash expansion. Avoid tuning your storage again with balanced I/O across all physical components for predictable performance and ultra-low latency.HPE Primera also offers an embedded AI engine to self-optimize storage operations in real-time. With real-time context into the resources available to support application workloads and storage system operations, HPE Primera intelligently and dynamically optimizes resource utilization to ensure fast and predictable performance.With intelligence and an architectural advantage, HPE Primera helps ensure your traditional and modern applications are fast, even at scale.
