HOUSTON, Texas – April 4, 2023 – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) today announced new file, block, disaster and backup recovery data services designed to help customers eliminate data silos, reduce cost and complexity, and improve performance. The new file storage data services deliver scale-out, enterprise-grade performance for data-intensive workloads, and the expanded block services provide mission-critical storage with mid-range economics.

Together, the new data services provide an intuitive cloud operating experience that enables customers to transform data lifecycle management and thrive in the age of insight.
“Customers today face unprecedented challenges in managing their data. The rapid increase in the volume and complexity of data has forced organizations to manage it all with a costly combination of siloed storage solutions,” said Tom Black, executive vice president and general manager, HPE Storage. “The new HPE GreenLake data services and expanded HPE Alletra innovations make it easier and more economical to manage multiple types of data, storage protocols, and workloads, allowing customers to focus on accelerating innovation and driving business results.”
Businesses of all sizes seek to leverage data to achieve better outcomes, while reining in data management costs and complexity. Meanwhile, the global volume of data generated is expected to double by 20261. Organizations are now confronted with a chaotic array of workload types and data protocols, each requiring different support and management systems, and struggle to backup, protect, and recover the data they depend on to run their business.
To help organizations overcome this data lifecycle nightmare, HPE is introducing a new, modular storage solution configurable for block or file stores. The HPE Alletra Storage MP supports a disaggregated infrastructure with multiple storage protocols on the same hardware that can scale independently for performance and capacity. Customers benefit from a single, unified cloud platform to deploy, manage, and orchestrate data and storage services, regardless of the workload and storage protocol. The flexibility of HPE Alletra Storage MP provides better price for performance today and the ability to cost-effectively scale out infrastructure on the same hardware in the future, while enhancing investment protection. Also, the intuitive cloud experience powered by AIOps provides the ability to provision and manage storage without the need for specialized skills.
