Like all of our HPE Storage products, HPE Alletra 5000 has our secret sauce built in – HPE InfoSight. The industry’s most advanced AIOps for infrastructure, HPE InfoSight, eliminates app disruptions so your applications are always-on and always-fast. Of course, that’s just the beginning. HPE Alletra 5000’s ultra-efficient architecture delivers both flash speed and disk economics while enabling consistent performance and industry-leading data efficiency. And with the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform, you can consume everything as a service – enabling you to shift from owning and maintaining data infrastructure to simply accessing and utilizing it.
Go faster with the cloud experience
Last year we unveiled our cloud-native data infrastructure, HPE Alletra. Powered by the Data Services Cloud Console on the HPE GreenLake platform, HPE Alletra simplifies on-prem storage with the speed and agility of a cloud operational experience. This makes the underlying infrastructure invisible while shifting operations to be app, not infrastructure, centric. With today’s HPE Alletra 5000 announcement, we’re extending the HPE Alletra family with a hybrid array.
The entire HPE Alletra line is all about simplicity, and HPE Alletra 5000 is no different. Get started in minutes with streamlined device deployment. Simply rack the infrastructure, plug in the cords, and connect the network cables. In a few clicks, the new system is configured and available in your fleet, ready to serve data application workloads.
Put your storage on autopilot with an AI-managed service
As I mentioned earlier, HPE InfoSight is our secret sauce. For years, our customers have said goodbye to endless firefighting because they have our industry-leading AIOps for infrastructure to drive autonomous operations and help ensure apps are always-on and always-fast. HPE InfoSight predicts and prevents disruptions before they occur across the stack, pinpoints issues between storage, VMs, and under-utilized virtual resources.
HPE InfoSight’s AI-driven recommendations take the guesswork out of managing your HPE Alletra 5000 while delivering predictive support automation and direct access to experts to avoid time-consuming escalations.
Get optimum price performance for your general-purpose workloads
HPE Alletra 5000 brings the speed, but at the right price point courtesy of an ultra-efficient architecture. In fact, it drives up to 25% faster speeds over previous HPE Nimble Storage Hybrid Flash Arrays — accelerating your apps with sub-millisecond latency while writing to cost-optimized disk at flash speeds through write serialization. And dynamic flash caching accelerates your reads even as workloads change in real-time.
Add to that always-on data reduction, enabling up to 5x space savings without performance penalty, and you have an array that dramatically increases storage efficiency while reducing cost and footprint.
With HPE Alletra 5000, you can easily scale without disruption by growing the capacity and performance of a running system independently and non-disruptively. Scale up to four arrays with transparent volume mobility between arrays to achieve linear performance and capacity scaling.
Depend on a resilient, proven platform
It’s time to forget the anxiety and disruption of unexpected downtime. HPE Alletra 5000 ensures resilient 6x9s data availability for every customer and every array via a cost-nothing, do-nothing guarantee. With HPE InfoSight predicting and preventing problems, your arrays get smarter, better, and more reliable every day.
It’s also time to stop accepting trade-offs between data resilience and performance. HPE Alletra 5000 delivers Triple+ Parity RAID as standard – with zero performance impact. This means that HPE Alletra 5000 can handle three simultaneous drive failures without data loss and provides additional protection through intra-drive parity.
HPE Alletra 5000 is adaptive. It can be leveraged for general-purpose workloads and secondary workloads. Your recovery SLAs are fast, simple, and integrated with app-aware backup and recovery on-premises and in the cloud. You can natively replicate from HPE Alletra 6000 All Flash Arrays to HPE Alletra 5000 Hybrid Arrays. And now you can leverage SaaS-based HPE Backup and Recovery Service to simplify hybrid cloud data protection with instant restores, rapid recovery on-prem, and cost-effective long-term retention in the cloud.
Consume as a service, on demand
HPE Alletra 5000 also gives you consumption options. Choose between CAPEX/subscription or pay-per-use models. A flexible as-a-service consumption model with HPE GreenLake enables you to eliminate over- and under-provisioning concerns, CAPEX budget constraints, and complex procurement cycles.
Easily get the storage resources you need faster with workload-optimized storage tiers delivered in days. You can scale on demand as needed, and take advantage of buffer capacity for unexpected workloads or usage demands.
More broadly, you can shift from heavy upfront costs to a transparent monthly subscription. The cloud consumption experience shortens project deployment times, frees up capital and IT resources, aligns your spend with business needs, and boosts your financial flexibility and operational speed.
Experience a simple, affordable, risk-free transition
Lastly, moving to HPE Alletra 5000 is easy and hassle free. HPE Nimble Storage Hybrid Flash Array customers can take the risk and complexity out of switching to HPE Alletra 5000 with quick, non-disruptive data-in-place upgrades. In-field controller upgrades enable you to continue to use and drive ROI from your existing HPE Nimble Storage chassis, media, and networking.
If you’re an existing HPE Nimble Storage customer, you can easily transition to HPE Alletra 5010 on a budget — and get 2x the capacity at a similar price point to a comparable HPE Nimble Storage Hybrid Array.
