SMART Surveillance 2023 Mining (Industry)

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced new file, block, disaster and backup recovery data services designed to help customers eliminate data silos, reduce cost and complexity, and improve performance. The new file storage data services deliver scale-out, enterprise-grade performance for data-intensive workloads, and the expanded block services provide mission-critical storage with mid-range economics.

The new file and block offerings leverage a flexible architecture through HPE Alletra Storage MP, so customers’ can store, manage, and protect all data types from one unified platform, across the hybrid cloud. Together, the new data services provide an intuitive cloud operating experience that enables customers to transform data lifecycle management and thrive in the age of insight.

“Customers today face unprecedented challenges in managing their data. The rapid increase in the volume and complexity of data has forced organisations to manage it all with a costly combination of siloed storage solutions,” said Tom Black, Executive Vice President and GM, HPE Storage. “The new HPE GreenLake data services and expanded HPE Alletra innovations make it easier and more economical to manage multiple types of data, storage protocols, and workloads; allowing customers to focus on accelerating innovation and driving business results.”

Businesses of all sizes seek to leverage data to achieve better outcomes, while reining in data management costs and complexity. Meanwhile, the global volume of data generated is expected to double by 20261. Organisations are now confronted with a chaotic array of workload types and data protocols, each requiring different support and management systems, and struggle to backup, protect, and recover the data they depend on to run their business.

To help organisations overcome this data lifecycle nightmare, HPE is introducing a new, modular storage solution configurable for block or file stores. The HPE Alletra Storage MP supports a disaggregated infrastructure with multiple storage protocols on the same hardware that can scale independently for performance and capacity.

Customers benefit from a single, unified cloud platform to deploy, manage, and orchestrate data and storage services, regardless of the workload and storage protocol. The flexibility of HPE Alletra Storage MP provides a better price for performance today and the ability to cost-effectively scale out infrastructure on the same hardware in the future, while enhancing investment protection. Also, the intuitive cloud experience powered by AIOps provides the ability to provision and manage storage without the need for specialised skills.

Expands block storage

The new HPE file and block storage offerings are available through HPE GreenLake. The ability to orchestrate and manage file and block data services from one unified platform allows customers to focus on leveraging the power of data to unleash innovation and gain competitive advantage.

HPE GreenLake for File Storage provides a scale-out service to accelerate processing of data-intensive workloads through enterprise performance at scale, with throughput of hundreds of gigabytes per second. The new file storage service brings together the HPE GreenLake cloud experience and VAST Data software to establish a highly resilient file service designed for exabyte scale.

The new HPE GreenLake for Block Storage is the industry’s first disaggregated, scale-out block storage with a 100% data availability guarantee. HPE GreenLake for Block Storage now offers a better price for performance, but with the same always-on, always-fast architecture, designed to help customers meet SLAs for mission-critical applications and mixed workloads.
