Don't let apps slow you down with HPE Nimble Storage

Predictive flash storage is smart enough to make 86% of problems disappear.

When the applications in your business begin to slow you down, they’ve hit the ‘app-data gap’.

 

HPE Nimble Storage surveyed nearly 3,000 IT decision makers and business users worldwide to see how these application performance delays affected company performance and financial results. The results showed that up to $7.5 billion per year is wasted due to application downtime and between 11 and 30 minutes of each working day is wasted due to waiting for software to load.

Do you know how your business is dealing with App-Data Gaps?

Ask yourself these 3 questions:

DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHICH DATA APPLICATIONS CAUSE THE MOST FRUSTRATION FOR YOUR EMPLOYEES ?

 

ARE THERE AREAS OF YOUR BUSINESS THAT REQUIRE DATA-INTENSIVE PROCESSES THAT COULD SLOW THE BUSINESS DOWN ?

 

HAVE YOU CARRIED OUT A RIGOROUS ASSESSMENT OF YOUR COMPANY’S DATA INFRASTRUCTURE TO DETERMINE WHERE POTENTIAL LATENCIES ARE WORST ?

With businesses increasingly dependent on multiple applications to run their organisation effectively, the potential risk of an app-data gap becomes more likely. HPE Nimble Storage leverages flash storage and predictive analytics to eliminate the gap and guarantee 99.9999% availability1, delivering the best all-flash capacity per TB in the industry – and future-proofing design for value today and tomorrow.
