How have HPE Nimble Storage dHCI Changed How Administrators Work?

HPE Nimble Storage dHCI helps deliver the simplicity of hyper-converged without any limitation. It is also known for including resiliency along with independent scaling of storage and computer and business-critical speed.

Have access to the simplicity and ease-of-use with HPE Nimble Storage with disaggregated HCI which delivers a hyper-converged experience. With HPE Nimble Storage dHCI users will be able to drive more resiliency for all the apps and help scale the performance hence increasing efficiency. HPE Nimble Storage dHCI offers 10 times more low latency for the applications, accelerating all the applications running. It also helps in increasing 4 times more resilience. It is known for having maximum resiliency with zero tuning. It is 5 times more effective when used, and none of the resources are wasted in this case.

HPE Nimble Storage dHCI environment setup

If users are looking to better understand the concept of storage in a dHCI environment, they will have to read the article carefully. Users will have to understand how HPE’s dHCI solutions have simplified and automated processes to set up and manage dHCI. It is then deployed into an environment that already has existing vCenter Servers. Doing this will surely help the users to replicate the experience of the initial dHCI deployment. The initial HPE Nimble Storage dHCI cluster will have about two computer nodes to an array, and everything will be managed using vSphere with the help of the HPE dHCI plugin.

The computer nodes are set up with HPE DL360 Gen10 servers. All the servers are equipped with dual Intel Xeon 6130 procs with 128 GB of RAM and redundant drives for the operating system. With the help of the Nimble toolkit and VMware ESXi 6.7u1 will come already pre-installed in the system. To store a HPE Nimble Storage dHCI is used from the AF line, specifically a AF20Q array with a total of 12 960GB SSD that provides users with 5.8 TiB of storage that can be used.

Along with the HPE Nimble Storage dHCI and VMware vSphere, Deployment Guide users will have first to install and configure the Nimble Storage. After that, the nodes can be created and added one by one.

How to configure the HPE Nimble Storage dHCI

The best part about HPE Nimble Storage dHCI is the self-service experience that comes along with it. All the resources drain the administrators' productivity because of the complicated end-to-end infrastructure management and multi-domain experience. HPE Nimble Storage dHCI will help users stand up full-stack infrastructure at scale in just 15 minutes and perform all the self-service management with VMware vCenter.

Why use the self-service experience of HPE Nimble Storage dHCI

●The infrastructure can be defined by the fluid pools of computers along with the storage.

●It is completely an auto-driven and policy-driven automation which entirely stacks sets in 15 minutes.

●All the data services are integrated with the vVols and vSphere for a great VM experience.

●All the performance and resources of app-aware are self-optimized recommendations.

●The performance with HPE Nimble Storage dHCI is quite easy to scale, and capacity is non-disruptive.

Easily scalable multi-cloud economics

If the HPE Nimble Storage dHCI is rigid and inflexible, it wastes a lot of leads and resources along the way. It is important to be flexible so that it can yield the maximum amount of efficiency. It helps in bringing efficiency at the scale across the hybrid clouds with all the different independent performances. Capacity scaling helps in providing more flexibility to the entire process.

●The performance and capacity can be independently scaled.

●The VM license tax helps in eliminating overprovisioning.

●Data efficiency is guaranteed through the HPE Store More Guarantee.

●With the help of native applications and data mobility, users will easily scale through multi-clouds.

●Flash cost can be reduced by almost 50 percent with the help of all-flash and hybrid-flash.

The most important part about Nimble Storage is that the applications must always be on and in a performing position. The only obstacle is from VM sprawl which unchecks data growth and makes it almost impossible to resolve any issue. Nimble Storage makes the management work much easier, and it helps in increasing efficiency. All the data used are kept safe and predictive analyses are all anticipated by it and prevented. The data protection is already built into it with app consistency, and the technology used is quite advanced. The response time is worth mentioning because it takes up just 200 microseconds to respond to any call. With Nimble Storage, about 99.9999 percent of measured data are available with minimal data loss. Contact us to know more about this product.


The flexibility of converged and the simplicity of HCI. 


HPE Nimble Storage dHCI (disaggregated hyperconverged infrastructure) provides the flexibility to scale storage and compute independently, making it ideal for mission-critical data bases and data warehouses. HPE Nimble Storage dHCI is a Converged System built on HPE Infosight and integrated VM management which makes it simple to manage and can scale rack-to-apps in minutes. Powered by HPE InfoSight, it provides self-optimising performance, predictive support automation and problem prevention.  HPE Nimble Storage dHCI is a fast, resilient platform that delivers sub-millisecond latency and six-nines (99.9999%) measured availability.


Busy VM administrators and architects now have always-fast app performance, always-on data resilience, and resource efficiency at scale. HPE Nimble Storage dHCI is simple for anyone to manage, ready for demanding apps and built for efficient scale.


Intelligently simple

Self-service experience

Resource silos drain productivity for VM administrators with complicated end-to-end infrastructure management and multi-domain expertise. Stand up full-stack infrastructure at scale in less than 15 minutes and perform self-service management within VMware vCenter.

  • Fluid pools of compute and storage with software-defined infrastructure
  • Entire stack sets up in less than 15 minutes with auto-discovery and policy-driven automation
  • Data services integrated with vSphere and vVols for a native VM experience
  • App-aware recommendations self-optimise performance and resources
  • Easy to scale performance and capacity non-disruptively


Efficiently scalable

Multicloud economics

Rigid, inflexible infrastructure leads to waste and anchors applications to on-premises and public clouds, stalling your hybrid cloud strategies. Trade-offs among efficiency and performance and keep you from reaping the benefits of hybrid cloud. HPE Nimble Storage dHCI brings efficiency at scale across hybrid clouds, with independent performance and capacity scaling to provide flexibility for varying workloads and avoid costly overprovisioning.

  • Independently scales performance and capacity
  • Eliminates overprovisioning and VM licence tax
  • Guaranteed best data efficiency through the HPE Store More Guarantee
  • Easily scales across multicloud with native app and data mobility
  • Reduces flash costs by up to 50% with all-flash and hybrid flash*
