Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) said it will be offering its HPC solutions HPC solutions as a service through HPE GreenLake.
The HPC offering removes the cost associated with HPC deployments by delivering managed, pre-bundled services based on purpose-built HPC systems, software, storage and networking solutions that come in small, medium or large options.
Customers can order these through a self-service portal with simple point-and-click functions to choose the right configuration for their workload needs and receive services in little as 14 days.
“These HPC cloud services enable enterprises to access the most powerful HPC and AI capabilities and unlock greater insights that will power their ability to advance critical research and achieve bold customer outcomes,” Peter Ungaro, senior vice president and general manager, HPC and Mission Critical Solutions (MCS), at HPE, said.
HPC provides massive computing power, along with modeling and simulation capabilities, to turn complex data into digital models that help researchers and engineers understand what something will look like and perform in the real world. HPC also provides optimal performance to run AI and analytics to increase predictability.
According to Intersect360 Research, the HPC market will grow by more than 40 percent, reaching almost $55 billion in revenue by 2024.
However, traditional deployment and management of HPC systems is costly, complex, and resource-intensive. Top concerns involve system costs, operational costs related to power and cooling, and lack of skilled HPC technical staff, according to Hyperion Research.
HPE is simplifying this experience by speeding up deployment of HPC projects by up 75 percent and reducing capital expenditures by up to 40 percent by offering its HPC portfolio through HPE GreenLake cloud services.
Enterprises can deploy these services in any data center environment, whether on-premises in their own enterprise or in a colocation facility, and gain fully managed services that allow them to pay for only what they use, empowering them to focus on running their projects to increase time-to-insight and accelerate innovation.
HPE will initially offer an HPC service based on HPE Apollo systems, combined with storage and networking technologies, which are purpose-built for running modeling and simulation workloads. The service also leverages key HPC software for HPC workload management, support for HPC-specific containers and orchestration, and HPC cluster management and monitoring.
HPE plans to expand the rest of its HPC portfolio to as-a-service offerings in the future.
Customers can choose these bundles from small, medium or large configurations, receive in as little as 14 days, and gain a fully managed service from HPE.
