HPE Primera 600 Storage


Are you bringing new mission-critical applications to market while supporting existing ones in order to accelerate speed of business, agility and innovation?

Is your traditional high-end storage holding you back because you are tied down administering, tuning, and supporting infrastructure?

HPE Primera redefines what's possible in mission-critical storage by combining autonomous operations with extreme resiliency and performance. Built with the agility of cloud and powered by 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 [1].

What's New

  • Self-optimize system operations in realtime by intelligently and dynamically optimizing resource utilization to ensure fast and predictable performance.

  • Deliver transparent business continuity now with the flexibility to replicate to a third site to recover from a metropolitan area disaster with enhanced HPE Peer Persistence.

  • Near-instant asynchronous replication over extended distances with a one minute recovery point objective.

  • Accelerate applications and improve storage density with all-NVMe configurations. For SAP HANA, HPE Primera with all-NVMe now supports 2X the number of SAP HANA nodes at half the price [2].


1. Achieve an On-demand Storage Experience

Deploy, manage, and scale your storage in 93% less time [3] with a platform that sets up in minutes, tunes itself, and upgrades transparently without hassle. Rely on automated, self-optimizing system operations that take action on your behalf in real-time to help ensure fast and predictable performance.

Deliver a dynamic, fluid set of resources that you can automate and dynamically allocate in real-time, using a common API with integration with HPE Synergy and HPE Composable Rack.

2. Prevent Disruptions with App-aware Resiliency

Raise the bar on mission-critical reliability. HPE Primera comes standard with a 100% data availability guarantee [1], without requiring special contracts or onerous terms.

See beyond the walls of storage. More than 90% of issues arise from above the storage layer [4] – in the network, server and virtualization layer. HPE Primera sees beyond storage with HPE InfoSight to predict and prevent any disruptions in the networking, application and server layers.

Meet any RPO/RTO strategy with transparent business continuity and extend app-aware data protection to the cloud.

3. Consolidate Without the Risk

Ensure your traditional and modern mission critical apps are always fast, even at scale thru an all-active architecture built for all-NVMe.

Get visibility for optimizing application workload placement while accounting for application performance characteristics and interactions with other shared applications on an HPE Primera system.

Eliminate the guesswork with real-time analytics to maintain predictable performance. AI models trained in the cloud are embedded in the array for realtime analytics to ensure consistent performance for application workloads.

4. Enterprise Storage Ownership Transformed

Forget costly and disruptive platform rip-and-replace cycles with data-in-place upgrades.

Experience a simple, flat support pricing model to ensure you receive the same great support year after year at the same price as Day 1.

Access all OS features, including a full suite of replication capabilities and HPE InfoSight, at no additional cost.

Enjoy guaranteed availability and data reduction for the ultimate peace of mind.

Try HPE Primera for 30 days at no risk. If you aren’t completely satisfied with the benefits and capabilities of HPE Primera as outlined in our product specs, we will work with you to make things right. [5]
