Pop that in the container, would you? HPE performs 3PAR array brain transplant


Re: What's new with InfoSight?

One other note about how we were able to do this so quickly:

Yes, the Nimble Storage InfoSight team were pretty surprised to see how many sensors were already coded in the 3PAR OS. There's something like 7TB of data that is created per day per 3PAR array. That data has been sent "home" for years across an installed base of 75,000 3PAR units - so lots of opportunity for learning. What we didn't have before InfoSight was a predictive analytics platform to really dive into the data and learn from it.

So have all that data is what has made integrating 3PAR with InfoSight easier than most would have thought. However, getting to that next step of case automation does take engineering resources to develop them. That said, the PEAK team is pushing out updates for 3PAR every two weeks so I expect the case automation to increase exponentially over the next few months.


What's new with InfoSight?

The 3PAR InfoSight team has no one in India. The team focused on the integration is called the PEAK team. I talked a bit about them in a blog post I did yesterday. https://community.hpe.com/t5/Around-the-Storage-Block/3PAR-advances-intelligent-storage-with-AI-and-cloud-automation/ba-p/7012859

My blog post also talks about what is new with HPE InfoSight and 3PAR - it's the predictive case automation. The PEAK team is adding new digital signatures that allows the team to automatically open, resolve, and close cases. The other big thing that I didn't really mention is that the case automation is also able to resolve cases that are just "noise" - that would normally go to a support engineer but we can determine they don't need to and resolve them without involving a Response Center Support Engineer.

HPE StoreVirtual gets low-cost ARM-powered variant


That's a lot for $10K

Don't know the price of the two SSDs in the MSA 2040 but their included in the base product. So for the $10,000 US Street price customer gets enclosure, dual controllers, a pair of SSDs, and the Advanced Data Services software that costs about $7000.

(I work for HPE Storage and am in fact the guy who created the ChalkTalks Chris pointed to in the article).
