Apollo 6000 Systems

Air-cooled, high-performance computing at rack scale delivers optimised density, improved power efficiency and lower cost of ownership.

Get the Most out of Your Infrastructure – and Your Budget

Move up to high-performance computing (HPC) with the scalable, flexible HPE Apollo 6000 System. It gives you a performance-optimised, air-cooled solution that’s within your space limitations and financial requirements. This rack-level solution provides simplified administration efficiencies and flexibility to match the solutions to the workload, to lower your total cost of ownership.

The Right Compute at Rack Scale

The HPE Apollo 6000 fits more cores into a smaller form factor, giving you 20 percent more processing power while taking up 60 percent less space than a computing blade. You gain the efficiency, density and throughput you need for HPC – while using 46 percent less energy.

Gain and Save More Power


  • Supports up to six chassis, and can power up to 120 servers
  • HPE Advanced Power Manager provides real-time power measurements, and enables rack-level dynamic power capping to save energy

Improve Performance Per Square Foot


  • Built on the Intel Xeon E3 V3 family of processors and offers a singular, modular infrastructure that’s simple to scale by chassis or rack
  • Can fit up to 160 servers in one 48U rack, using 60 percent less space than competing blade servers

Greater Flexibility at Rack Level


  • Uses HPE Power Shelf, to drive rack-scale efficiency
  • Features compute and storage in the rack, so you can tailor your infrastructure by workload
  • Supports FlexibleLOM networking options, to fit your workload needs while increasing cost savings

High-Performance Configurations in Less Space

The HPE Apollo 6000 offers outstanding configuration flexibility and can be easily integrated into your existing systems. It can be tailored to your exact workload needs, so you gain the ability to run far more workloads than before

HPE Apollo 6500 System

HPE Apollo 6500 System


Rapidly transform massive data streams and solve your most demanding analysis and prediction problems faster. This system provides up to 15 teraflops of single-precision performance per 2U server, accelerating the performance of data centre workloads with up to eight GPUs or coprocessors.

HPE Apollo 6000 Chassis


Accommodate up to ten (10) hot-swap server trays in a single chassis. You get the flexibility to choose from the HPE ProLiant XL230a Gen9 Server, the HPE ProLiant XL250a Gen9 Server or a combination of server trays to meet your workload needs.

HPE ProLiant XL250a Gen9 Server


Accelerate life sciences workloads within your budget. This server has one 2P server per tray with up to two accelerator cards, for better performance than CPU alone. And you can take advantage of compute, storage and accelerator tray options as they become available in the same modular, flexible chassis.

HPE ProLiant XL230a Gen9 Server


Gain the efficiency for HPC workloads such as seismic processing or virtualised hosting. Each tray has one 2P server with Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 series processors, delivering up to 70 percent more processor performance and up to 36 percent more efficiency.

HPE Apollo in Action

Belgian University Accelerates Research Efforts

HPE Apollo 6000 Servers provides the HPC that enables Ghent University to explore bioinformatics, weather prediction, fluid dynamics, nanotechnology, physics, computational chemistry and linguistics.

Helping Researchers Achieve Breakthroughs

The University of Minnesota, the first American university to acquire a supercomputer decades ago, uses HPE Apollo Servers to accommodate a broad range of fields and drive the future of research.

Earning High Marks for Performance

Moor Insights & Strategy praises the efficiency, density and throughput of the HPE Apollo 6000 for HPC, along with its ability to meet different workload requirements.

Technology That Sets HPE Apollo Apart

We offer complete solutions, starting with Intel processors and purpose-built platforms, then layering innovative software, management tools and fabric.

HPC-Specific Software Solutions

HPE works with leading industry partners to provide software that maximises application performance, optimises resources and improves operational productivity. The first, HPE Core HPC Software Stack, is a complete software set for creating, optimising and running HPC applications. The second, HPE Insight Cluster Management Utility (CMU), is an integrated, easy-to-use point solution for provisioning, management and monitoring clusters of any scale.

A Complete Portfolio of Management Components

HPE rack- and system-level management solutions help you get the most out of your infrastructure – and your budget – and improve efficiency without affecting performance.  They provide extensive monitoring, cluster administration, lifecycle management, power control and measurement, pooled power and system management.

High-Performance Fabric Interconnects

All HPE Apollo Systems support the latest high-bandwidth, low-latency interconnect technologies. They include InfiniBand, which provides the performance and scalability required by high-performance compute (HPC) clusters and data centre applications. HPE Apollo also supports Intel® Omni-Path Fabric, which delivers HPC workloads and scales to tens of thousands of servers.
