Nimble Storage InfoSight: Transforming the Storage Lifecycle Experience with Deep-Data Analytics

The job of a storage administrator can sometimes be a difficult and lonely one. Administrators must handle a broad set of responsibilities, encompassing all aspects of managing their arrays and keeping up with user demands. And yet, flat IT budgets mean administrators are spread thin, with limited time to manage storage through its lifecycle, let alone improve and optimize storage practices and services.

In most organizations, the storage lifecycle is managed manually, as a complex and disjointed set of activities. Maintenance and support tend to be highly reactive, forcing administrators to play “catch up” each time a storage problem occurs. Monitoring and reporting rely on complex tools and large amounts of data that are difficult to interpret and act upon. Forecasting and planning are more art than science, leading administrators to overprovision to be on the safe side. These various lifecycle activities are seldom connected and inherently inefficient, and fail to provide administrators with the insight they need to anticipate issues and develop best practices. This, in turn, can put system availability and performance at risk, while reducing IT productivity.

Fortunately, one innovative vendor—Nimble Storage—has developed a powerful, data sciences-driven approach that promises to transform the storage lifecycle experience. Based on deep data collection, intelligent and predictive analytics, and automation built on storage and application expertise, Nimble InfoSight streamlines the storage lifecycle, providing administrators with the insights needed to optimize their arrays while also increasing their productivity. InfoSight collects and analyzes over 30 million data points each day from every installed Nimble Storage array worldwide, and then makes the resulting intelligence available both to Nimble engineers and customers. InfoSight automated analysis helps to proactively anticipate and prevent technical problems, significantly reducing the support burden on administrators. InfoSight also provides administrators with an intuitive, dashboard-driven portal into the performance, capacity utilization and data protection of their arrays, enabling them to monitor array operations across multiple sites and to better plan for future needs. By streamlining and informing key activities across the storage lifecycle, InfoSight simplifies and enhances day-to-day administrative tasks such as support, monitoring and forecasting, while enabling administrators to focus on more important initiatives.

To put a human face on InfoSight intelligence, Nimble Storage has also unveiled a new user community. The community allows users to connect and share ideas and resources via discussion forums, knowledge bases, and social media channels. The Nimble community will enable the company’s large and loyal customer base to write about and share their experiences and insights with each other, as well as with prospective users. Together, InfoSight and the Nimble community will give storage administrators unprecedented access to anonymized installed based data and peers’ expertise, enabling them to stay on top of their game and get more out of their arrays.

In this profile, we’ll examine the challenges administrators typically face on a day-to-day basis, and then take a closer look at InfoSight capabilities, and how they address these issues. We’ll then learn how two Nimble customers have benefited from InfoSight in several important ways. Finally, we’ll briefly examine the Nimble community, and discuss how these two initiatives together are empowering administrators through a combination of shared user data and insights.

HPE Brings Multi-Cloud Storage to the Enterprise

Companies in every industry and from every corner of the world are increasingly adopting cloud storage, addressing use cases such as backup, archiving and disaster recovery. More than 96% of organizations we recently surveyed are housing at least some of their data in the cloud, up from just 65% five years before. Firms deploying storage in the cloud are looking to increase IT agility and workload scalability, while taking advantage of a more flexible, pay-as-you-go consumption model.

But for enterprises and mid-sized organizations alike, the cloud journey nearly always starts on premises. A large majority of organizations still run the core of their business-critical workloads in the data center, supported by significant and proven investments in on-premises hardware, workflows and business processes that support key business apps and ensure maximum value to users and other stakeholders. Not surprisingly, IT decision makers tread carefully when it comes to considering public cloud deployments for their critical apps or data.

To get the best of the cloud without compromising current IT investments, a growing majority of decision makers are now focusing on solutions with hybrid and multicloud capabilities. Hybrid cloud enables them to gain value from the cloud from day 1, while fully leveraging their on-prem infrastructure. Under a hybrid model, companies can deploy selected apps that make sense to run in the public cloud, but still run a majority of their core business workloads on-premises. They can also employ a dev-ops approach to begin to develop and run cloud-native apps.

Multicloud takes those benefits one step further, enabling portability of workloads between two or more clouds. Organizations we surveyed are now working with at least two major public cloud providers, on average, enabling them to avoid lock-in to a single provider and to choose the provider that best meets the needs of each app and use case. Together, hybrid and multicloud offer an attractive and measured approach for companies looking to deploy some of their workloads in the cloud.

In this piece we’ll examine the customer journey to cloud storage, including some important considerations companies should keep in mind as they decide what approach will work best for them. We’ll then describe HPE’s storage platforms, which are built for cloud and provide a powerful and unique approach to multicloud storage. Finally, we’ll look at the advantages that HPE storage delivers over other cloud storage deployment models, and show how these HPE platforms are helping enterprises to maximize the potential of their cloud storage initiatives.
