InfoSights works by analysing millions of sensors globally, using data to predict problems and find solutions across its entire infrastructure network. The firm claims that this can offer a 99.9999% guaranteed reliability, in addition to it fixing infrastructure problems 85% faster.
“HPE InfoSight marks the first time a major storage vendor has been able to predict issues and proactively resolve them before a customer is even aware of the problem,” said Bill Philbin, Senior Vice President, HPE GM Storage.
“As applications increasingly drive today’s businesses, we need to help customers move toward a self-managing IT model. HPE InfoSight enables IT to spend more time on projects that add value to the business rather than on troubleshooting issues.”
The new technology highlights a milestone in the company’s attempt to create a fully autonomous data centre through the use of machine learning.
“InfoSight's predictive analytics have saved us from potentially impactful issues,” said Justin Giardina, CTO, iland Secure Cloud. “And the new recommendation engine is phenomenal as it’s making proactive decisions, showing us how we can improve our environment.”
HPE InfoSight with the new AI recommendation engine will become available in January 2018.
