HPE Nimble Storage HF40 Adaptive Dual Controller
The HPE Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash Arrays are like having two flash arrays in one. The array is truly adaptive – designed for both primary and secondary flash workloads. It is a hybrid flash array for mixed, primary workloads where cost-efficient flash performance is important. It can also serve as a secondary flash array for backup and disaster recover (DR) while allowing you to put your backup data to work.
The flash-enhanced architecture is combined with HPE InfoSight predictive analytics for fast, reliable access to data and 99.9999% guaranteed availability. Radically simple to deploy and use, the arrays are cloud-ready – providing data mobility to the cloud through HPE Cloud Volumes. Your storage investment made today will support you well into the future, thanks to our technology and business-model innovations.
- Inline variable block deduplication and compression for increased data reduction.

Adaptive Dual Controller Features
- The HPE Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash Arrays automatically predicts and resolves 86% of problems before you even know there is an issue.
- Transforms the support experience through predictive automation and Level 3- only support.
- Holistic view across the infrastructure stack and resolves problems beyond just storage.
- Simplifies planning with prescriptive forecasts into capacity, performance, and bandwidth requirements.
- Makes infrastructure smarter and more reliable by learning from the installed base.
- HPE Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash Arrays are simple to deploy configure and manage.
- Deploy flash on-premise, or in the public cloud through common data services across the HPE Nimble Storage family.
- Seamlessly migrate data between all-flash, hybrid-flash, and multi-cloud storage.
- Our timeless storage is your assurance of business value, no worries today, no worries tomorrow.
- Radically easy to integrate with many ecosystems and has deep integration with VMware®, Microsoft® applications, Oracle®, Veeam, and others.
Flash Performance for Mixed and Mainstream Workloads
- HPE Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash Arrays have speed and efficiency for mixed workloads with sub-millisecond response and greater efficiency than other hybrid arrays.
- Write to cost-optimized disk at flash speeds through write serialization. Dynamic flash caching accelerates reads even as workloads change in real time.
- Digital data sheet Page 3 Assigns and changes the service level of any volume at the click of a button ("Auto Flash", "All Flash", or "Minimal Flash").
- Always-on data reduction delivers up to 5X space savings without performance penalty.
Put your Backup Data to Work
- HPE Nimble Storage Adaptive Flash Arrays have secondary storage that does real work: flash performance lets you use your backup data for development/test, QA, analytics, and more.
- Reduces the need for full backups since native application-consistent snapshots and replication plus integration with leading backup software. Speeds synthetic full backups from hours to minutes.
- 99.9999% (six-nines) guaranteed availability. Triple+ Parity RAID tolerates 3 simultaneous drive failures plus additional protection through intra-drive parity.
- Application-granular, FIPS-certified encryption provides secure over-the-wire protection. Enhanced data shredding is built-in.
- Built-in application-consistent snapshots and replication. Integration with leading backup software. Deep integration with Veeam availability software
