Businesses need to accelerate everything, but traditional high-end storage can’t keep up. Now is the time for intelligent storage that manages itself for every mission-critical app of today and tomorrow. Introducing, HPE Primera, the world’s most intelligent storage for mission-critical apps that unlocks the agility of the cloud, so you can innovate without compromise. Built upon proven resiliency and powered by the intelligence of HPE InfoSight, HPE Primera delivers instant access to data with storage that sets up in minutes, upgrades transparently, and is delivered as a service. Plus, it’s backed by a 100% availability guarantee.3

HPE Primera Architecture

HPE Primera all-active architecture, system-wide striping, fine-grain virtualization, advanced metadata handling, and system-wide sparing are just some of the pillars of HPE Primera architecture that deliver on the promise of Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) and Storage Class Memory. The ability of HPE Primera storage to maintain high and predictable performance in all environments is made possible through architectural innovations that utilize all available array hardware resources at all times, thereby eliminating resource contention, supporting mixed workloads to accelerate performance and reduce latency.

HPE Primera storage delivers tier-0 resiliency with an architecture designed to eliminate any single point of failure (hardware or software) in the system. The architecture was designed to provide cost-effective single-system scalability through a unified, multinode, clustered implementation. The most important element of the HPE Primera architecture is the controller node. It is a powerful data movement engine that is designed for mixed workloads. This modular approach provides flexibility, cost-effective entry footprint, and affordable upgrade paths for increasing performance, capacity, and connectivity as needs change.Purpose-built for the enterprise as well as virtual and cloud data centers, the HPE Primera all-active architecture design allows each volume to be active on any controller in the system via the high-speed, full-mesh interconnection that joins multiple controller nodes. As a result, the system delivers symmetrical load balancing and utilization of all controllers with seamless performance scalability by adding more controllers and disk drives to the system.
