How is Hpe for a fresher one

The propagated software defined data center (SDCC) is taking shape at HPE. HPE is going one step further and is already talking about an autonomous data center that could be implemented with the help of artificial intelligence, predictive analytics and an AI-driven recommendation engine. The latter is a type of software system that can make quantified predictions or statements based on the information collected.

Based on these technologies, HPE wants to simplify the management of IT infrastructures and at the same time improve reliability. To put this into practice, the company has integrated a recommendation engine with artificial intelligence and machine learning into InfoSight.

HPE took over the InfoSight analysis and management tool as part of the acquisition of the all-flash storage specialist Nimble Storage and adapted it to its systems. According to HPE, the AI ​​and predictive analytics functions can reduce application interruptions and downtimes to a minimum, thereby guaranteeing availability of more than 99.9999 percent. The analysis software can not only monitor storage and cloud resources, but also keep an eye on virtualized environments such as VMware.

In order to make a valid forecast about the condition of a resource with InfoSight, millions of data sensors are queried on the systems every day and their information is collected and analyzed. In this way, possible problems on the infrastructure components can be identified in good time and solved proactively.

While InfoSight has so far only been able to demonstrate its performance potential mainly on HPE nimble storage systems, HPE InfoSight now also supports 3PAR storage systems, but not yet with the full range of services. For the time being, this is limited to a cross-sack analysis in order to find faults between storage and virtual machines (VMs), as well as global visibility of the systems and predictive support in order to identify and eliminate discrepancies in good time. Both the KI Recommendation Engine and HPE InfoSight for 3PAR have been available since January 2018.

AMD Turbo for the data center

For a long time it was quiet around AMD in the server environment, as the Opteron servers were not very attractive to IT buyers in terms of performance compared to Intel's Xeon server CPUs. But with the fresh and powerful Zen microarchitecture and the Epyc processors based on it, AMD is trying to make up lost ground.

AMD's confidence seems to be well founded, because HPE has two systems with the new CPU at the start with the ProLiant DL385 Gen10 Server and Cloudline CL3150 and companies such as Dell / EMC, Microsoft, Dropbox or Baidu, but also Asus and Gigabyte are expanding their range Portfolio around new AMD-based servers. This is not surprising, because the first server benchmarks on an HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 on spec.org are very promising. In the future, AMD-based servers could also increasingly participate in HPE's efforts to implement autonomous data centers.
