The Primary use case for HPE Primera is moving and storing high performance databases and core infrastructure, virtual machines, SQL databases, et cetera... This is an on-premises solution because right now it is not popular among customers to use hybrid or cloud solutions in the Georgian Republic. Today, it is not common to move compute and storage sources onto the cloud. I don't know what happens in other regions like Europe, but in the Georgia Republic it is not popular.
The primary use case is for all of the backend, the core storage infrastructure at this point. It's the migration from spinning disk, it has all types of workloads. 80% are virtual machines, file services, and database workloads.
This product is used for all of the backend, core storage infrastructure. We migrated from spinning-disk, so it has the same type of workloads. It is 80% virtual machines, and then file services, and database workloads.
I work with an HPE authorized partner in Malta and we offer storage solutions for customers. HPE Primera is one such product that I have experience with. We have noticed that these days, most of the customers are implementing a solution that is a hybrid between Nimble and Primera All-Flash. There are both spinning disks and flash, where flash is used as the cache, which makes the price more competitive. The customers are primarily using it for disaster recovery. They have their cluster and they are replicating one another to provide business continuity and disaster recovery applications.
We are a solution provider and all-flash storage is one of the products that we sell to our customers. Primera is one of the ones that we recommend for data centers.
