HPE introduces innovative HPC solutions

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) on Monday announced new high-performance computing (HPC) solutions.

Software-defined platform, enhancements to its Apollo servers, as well as, a new ANSYS computer-aided engineering (CAE) software based solution for manufacturing organizations are part of today’s announcement from HPE.

HPE is the global HPC market leader with 35.9 percent market share.

Steve Conway, research vice president in IDC’s High Performance Computing group, said: “These innovative solutions aim to accelerate HPC adoption by organizations of all sizes and segments by enabling faster time to value and increased competitive differentiation through better parallel processing performance, along with reduced complexity and deployment time.”

HPE is launching a flexible, simple and comprehensive software-defined platform for HPC using the new HPE Core HPC Software Stack with HPE Insight Cluster Management Utility v8.0.

HPE Core HPC Software Stack is a single software suite that combines open source-based application development tools, libraries, and compilers with HPE cluster management capabilities including HPE iLO and simple cluster set up tools.

ELIXIR Denmark, a research institution focused on applied research in the life sciences industry, uses HPE Insight CMU to manage large cluster environment with rapid bare metal provisioning, simple monitoring with remote management and integration with a variety of cluster components.

HPE is enhancing the software defined Apollo HPC platform by adding systems design innovations for the Apollo 6000 system with new HPE ProLiant XL260a server trays-based on the next generation of the Intel Xeon Phi processor and the Intel Omni-Path Architecture (Intel OPA) to reduce latency, and increase bandwidth and performance.

HPE is enhancing the Apollo 2000 system and ProLiant DL server platforms with Intel OPA fabric options.

“The expansion of data sets, precision analytics, and machine learning, are driving our customers to take a fresh look at their infrastructure requirements,” said Charles Wuischpard, vice president Data Center Group, general manager High Performance Computing Platform Group, Intel.

HPE is also enhancing HPE Apollo 6000 and HPE Apollo 2000 systems with next-generation EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand solutions from Mellanox Technologies. Mellanox EDR fabric technology provides customers the network performance needed to improve response times and alleviate bottlenecks that impact application performance.
