What does HPE want with Nimble Storage?

It's to advance our HPE hybrid IT strategy, and in particular, strengthen our relationships in the fast-growing flash storage market. As you know, that market is growing. It's accelerating. Four years from now, it's going to be a $6 billion market. We already have an excellent presence with 3Par. This will complement our portfolio and give us full end-to-end coverage from the entry to the mid [market] to the high-end. This will be a leading-edge storage portfolio.

[The acquisition] accelerates the growth that they already have stand-alone. It's going to make it much easier for them to access new customers ... And now, moving up-market into the enterprise with us will make it much easier for them [with] access to our go-to-market, connecting to new technologies like HPE Synergy, and our compute portfolio: There are a lot of synergies here that we're going to drive for them, and for us, as a complete portfolio.
