Flexibility of converged. Simplicity of HCI.

Accelerate time to market, end firefighting, and optimize everything with an intelligent platform designed for the unpredictable.


Extending hyperconverged

Virtual machine (VM) administrators today are challenged by system complexity requiring multidomain experience, the pressure to support both traditional and modern applications, fighting VM sprawl, while being asked to reduce cost.

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) addresses these challenges—enabling compute, storage, and networking functions to be decoupled from the underlying infrastructure. It is an ideal architecture for workloads with predictable growth scaling compute and storage together.

The new architecture extends the hyperconverged experience for workloads with unpredictable growth, where future apps and consolidation require different amounts of compute or storage. HPE Nimble Storage dHCI lets VM administrators accelerate time to market on a platform that flexibly scales.


HPE Nimble Storage dHCI is an intelligent platform that disaggregates compute and storage, as well as integrates hyperconverged control for simple management on a flexible architecture. Powered with HPE InfoSight, the industry’s most advanced artificial intelligence for infrastructure,2 HPE Nimble Storage dHCI gives enterprises ultimate simplicity for their virtualized environments with fast app performance, always-on data resilience, and resource efficiency.

VM administrators face resource silos and information overload that drain productivity. Complicated end-to-end infrastructure management takes precious time and puts them in unfamiliar territory. HPE Nimble Storage dHCI enables VM administrators to stand up full stack infrastructure including compute, storage, and network, in minutes, through the dHCI automation software. Ongoing management is easy and self-serviceable, from within VMware vCenter®. Planning is simple, as resources are forecasted prescriptively across multiple tenants, powered by HPE InfoSight.


Features providing a fast, self-service experience include unified management with simple setup and auto-discovery via VMware vCenter. The offering includes software-defined data services integrated with VMware vSphere® and VMware® Virtual Volumes for a native VM experience. It also includes what-if simulations that help eliminate guesswork when consolidating new applications, as well as app-aware recommendations for self-optimizing performance and resources.



Application growth and ever-expanding data lead to firefighting. Applications must be always-on and always-performing. Still, VM sprawl and unchecked data growth make it hard to see and resolve issues.

HPE Nimble Storage dHCI keeps applications running nonstop and fast with HPE InfoSight. Data-centric visibility extends across the infrastructure and across every VM. This unique predictive analytics capability quickly diagnoses performance problems and identifies the root cause, driving an 85% auto-resolution across its installed base.6 Sprawling VM farms are easily kept under control and app resources are optimized.

Specific ways that HPE Nimble Storage dHCI helps ensure a fast application platform include all-flash storage with the IOPS and sub-millisecond latency for latency-intensive applications. Resilience is delivered in a number of ways, by being designed for 99.9999% availability, automated quality of service, advanced data integrity that tolerates three simultaneous drive failures, and native snapshot backup and replication that provides data protection on-premises and on the cloud.



Rigid, inflexible infrastructure leads to waste and anchors applications to either on-premises or public cloud, stalling hybrid cloud strategies.

HPE Nimble Storage dHCI brings efficiency for any scale environment, across hybrid clouds. Independent scaling of performance and capacity provides flexibility for varying workloads, from transactional databases needing more performance to data warehouses needing more capacity, avoiding costly overprovisioning. Non-disruptive scaling is enabled through flexible storage options including all-flash, hybrid flash, and HPE Cloud Volumes.

Enterprises can extend efficient scaling out to the cloud with native data mobility across on-premises and cloud storage with support for Google™ Anthos and HPE Cloud Volumes. In addition, the HPE Store More Guarantee provides more data per raw terabyte compared to competitive arrays, with average customers achieving flash storage data reduction savings up to 21X.

Timeless Storage with HPE Nimble Storage is also part of the solution. This program encompasses an uptime guarantee, data-in-place upgrades, all-inclusive software, and flat support pricing.


HPE delivers an intelligent data platform for your hybrid cloud, whether built on the HPE Nimble Storage dHCI offering or other portfolio products. Designed for 99.9999% availability, achieve up to an 85% increase in IT efficiency with AI powered by HPE InfoSight.
