HPE Expands HPC Lineup; Targets Deep Learning, Lustre, and FS

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) for the second straight week introduced new server products with today’s launches aimed at high performance computing. The centerpiece is a GPU-accelerated deep learning platform (Apollo 6500) whose announcement coincides with start of NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) being held this week in San Jose. HPE also announced a Lustre storage solution (Apollo 4520) and three ‘purpose-built’ servers for financial services (FS) based on Apollo and Moonshot products. There’s little question that deep learning and its various siblings (cognitive computing, machine learning, et al.) are increasingly important in HPC and the enterprise. The Apollo 6500 is a dense CPU/GPU machine in a relatively small footprint that can accommodate up to eight GPU cards in a single chassis. “We had a product a few years back, the…
