HPE adds AI to data centre management

HPE InfoSight will suggest how businesses can improve performance and reduce risk in the data centre

HPE has announced details of its artificial intelligence (AI) recommendation engine that it claims will help businesses manage their IT infrastructure, including apps, better.

HPE InfoSight uses software-defined intelligence to identify whether there's likely to be any infrastructure problems in the future, flagging them so staff can eradicate them before they cause problems in the data centre. It will also analyse performance and suggest how resources can be used more efficiently.

The company said the technology will significantly reduce downtime and the time it takes to fix infrastructure problems, in some cases up to 85%.

"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 of HPE GM storage, said.

"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."

HPE InfoSight works by analysing millions of sensors across the world from multiple sources, using the data to predict and prevent problems across the entire infrastructure, including storage and applications. HPE claimed it will offer greater than 99.9999% of guaranteed reliability.

"InfoSight's predictive analytics have saved us from potentially impactful issues," Justin Giardina, CTO of iland Secure Cloud, said. 

"And the new recommendation engine is phenomenal as it's making proactive decisions, showing us how we can improve our environment. iland provides 100% availability to our customers, and InfoSight is a huge part in making that happen."
