Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) recently announced that it’s putting its AI-based software, InfoSight, for the first time on HPE servers, giving channel partners an opportunity to change the server sales conversation with customers, according to Justin Hotard.

“Our customers face the challenge of how to drive and unlock the value of digital transformation faster than ever before. This requires evolving their data centers to deliver a hybrid cloud environment that is automated, self healing and addresses issues in real-time, so IT staff can focus on driving transformation, rather than managing navigating around hardware downtime and policy exceptions,” said HPE’s general manager of hybrid IT volume global business unit. “InfoSight complements the core infrastructure management tool, HPE OneView…helping customers improve the productivity and performance of their operations and freeing resources their staff to drive innovation from edge to cloud.”

HPE is extending InfoSight to ProLiant servers, Synergy compute modules and Apollo systems starting in January 2019.

InfoSight uses cloud-based machine learning to solve issues and provide global insights into the health of infrastructure, all in one location. Its capabilities were rolled out across HPE’s storage portfolio last year, and the company has touted an 86 per cent proactive reduction in storage issues and a 79 per cent decrease in storage IT operating expenditures for customers using the AI-based software in their storage environments.
