Frequently Asked Questions
HPE will not “end of life” EOL the Nimble Storage product line. HPE is viewing this deal as an expansion and intends to continue investing in the Nimble product line. Together we will enable customers like you to simplify IT operations and optimise your data needs with the right balance of price, performance, and agility.
Though we plan to make specific announcements about Nimble and HPE products by the end of the year, our expectation is that existing HPE and Nimble Storage Products will be unaffected by the acquisition for the foreseeable future.
• HPE MSA – HPE MSA is unaffected by the announcement to acquire Nimble. MSA is a leader in the entry category with more than 500,000 units deployed worldwide to date. It provides simple affordable storage to meet the performance needs of small sites.
• HPE StoreVirtual – The Nimble acquisition does not affect HPE StoreVirtual. StoreVirtual 3200 is our most affordable storage for the agile needs of small sites. The standalone StoreVirtual VSA is a software-defined storage controller that complements both StoreVirtual 3200 and 3PAR StoreServ.
• HPE XP – HPE XP is not affected by the acquisition of Nimble Storage. HPE XP provides extreme availability enterprise storage for mission-critical application consolidation.
• 3PAR StoreServ – 3PAR StoreServ is and will continue to be the HPE lead for the enterprise-class needs of the all-flash enterprise datacentre.
• Nimble Storage products are not impacted by the aquisition. The full portfolio of Nimble Storage products is available directly from Nimble Storage resellers. Select SKUs are available from HPE starting on 5 June.
Nimble flash arrays will extend the reach and coverage of the HPE storage portfolio. The portfolio provides predictive, cloud-ready storage with management simplicity for on-premises and the public cloud deployments. Nimble InfoSight will accelerate the transformation of the HPE storage portfolio into an analytics-based customer experience – including for 3PAR StoreServ.
No. HPE plans to integrate Nimble in a way that will retain the unique Nimble customer experience. There are three aspects to maintaining and improving the customer experience over time:
1. The plan is to integrate the existing Nimble support and management team into the HPE organisation. They will continue to be dedicated to supporting the Nimble Storage product line.
2. Beyond the support experience, Nimble customers frequently reference that they love Nimble because it ‘just works.’ HPE is planning to integrate Nimble engineers and management into HPE and maintain them as a product group. Design for simplicity, quality and resiliency will continue to be guiding principles for the development and QA teams.
3. The predictive analytics and machine learning capabilities of InfoSight are strengthened as the volume of data points available for analysis grows. By integrating information across the HPE server, 3PAR and SimpliVity installed base, InfoSight will become more powerful and be able to predict and prevent more issues.
Will I still be able to work with my partner to buy more Nimble Storage products? They are a Nimble Storage partner, but not a HPE partner. Will my sales team change?
Partners will continue to operate within the terms of the Nimble Storage Partner Programme and maintain existing agreements until the deal closes. There will be a transition period with no change to the agreements between Nimble Storage and the channel partners to ensure business continuity.
