Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) offers a new generation of high performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) systems, software and services to accelerate scientific, engineering and business innovation. The new HPE Apollo 6000 Gen10, HPE SGI 8600 and HPE Apollo 10 Series systems are workload-optimized with a goal to reduce vulnerability to cyber-attacks and improve economic control, the company reports.
HPE is now offering the following:
HPE SGI 8600 System
The HPE SGI 8600 is a liquid cooled petascale system, based on the legacy SGI ICE XA architecture, built to solve complex scientific, engineering and national security challenges. It scales to more than 10,000 nodes without additional switches using integrated switches and hypercube technology.
HPE Apollo 6000 Gen10 System
The next generation of HPE’s large commercial, air-cooled, HPC platform was redesigned to deliver over 300 teraflops per rack and higher rack-scale efficiency. Key new capabilities of this system include greater application licensing efficiency; reduced latency and higher IOPs performance and reduced power consumption and cooling requirements, HPE reports.
HPE Apollo 10 Series
These are new platforms optimized for entry-level deep learning and AI applications that are easy to manage and deploy, HPE reports. The HPE Apollo sx40 System is a 1U dual socket Intel Xeon Gen10 server with support for up to four NVIDIA Tesla SXM2 GPUs with NVLink. The HPE Apollo pc40 System is a 1U dual socket Intel Xeon Gen10 server with support for up to four PCIe GPU cards.
HPE and Biovista Collaboration
This collaboration will leverage HPE’s Compute capabilities and Biovista’s Big Data AI engine, Project Prodigy, to identify and validate new therapeutic options for personalized medicine, and apply this approach at the community hospital setting, including in Biovista’s existing collaborations with community hospitals.
HPE’s HPC systems are enhanced by a new compute experience designed to address the data intense needs of HPC and AI customers, the company reports. The key elements of the HPC experience include enhanced firmware security via servers with firmware anchored into the silicon with high-level security; increased agility with software-defined HPC capabilities including HPE Performance Software Core Stack 2.2 pre-built HPC solution that brings together open source, third party and HPE built components into a single integrated distribution, HPE Insight Cluster Management Utility 8.2 and New HPE SGI Management Suite 3.5 comprehensive system management solutions and HPE Performance Software Message Passing Interface of libraries and optimization tools to enhance HPC application performance; and enhanced services for HPC and AI: HPE Pointnext is introducing advisory, professional and operational services that accelerate time to value for HPC and AI.
HPE Apollo 6000 Gen10 System, HPE Apollo sx40, HPE Apollo pc40, HPE SGI 8600 System will be globally available via HPE and HPE channel partners in July 2017. HPE Pointnext services for these new HPC and AI solutions will be available later this year.
