HPE adds recommendations to AI tech from Nimble acquisition

HPE adds recommendations to AI tech from Nimble acquisition
From TechCrunch - November 21, 2017

When HPE acquired Nimble Storage in March for a cool billion dollars, it knew it was getting some nifty flash storage technology. But it also got Nimbles InfoSight artificial intelligence capabilities that not only monitored the underlying storage arrays, but all of the adjacent datacenter technology.

Today, the company announced it has enhanced that technology to provide recommendations based on the body of data from Nimbles 10,000 customers.

Bill Philbin, HPE SVP and GM for storage and big data solutions, says when companies are running applications, they need to know when things are going to go wrong before it happens. Its not unlike sensors telling a factory owner that the machine is going to break soon. It allows you to take action proactively on your terms before something breaks down.
