HPE high-performance computing drafted to help fight COVID-19

March 23: Hewlett Packard Enterprises has been enlisted by the Federal Government to use its high-performance computing technology to significantly advance the pace of scientific discovery in the fight to end the threat from COVID-19. HPE will work with all resources at its disposal to help the world resolve this serious and deadly virus.

A message from Antonio

March 19:  In the face of COVID-19, HPE is prioritizing the things that are within our control – protecting our team members and their families, focusing on innovation and efforts to support our customers, and rising to the challenge of supporting the communities where we work and live.  Our CEO Antonio Neri shares an update on what we’re doing.

March 13: We know COVID-19 is concerning, so we wanted to share a quick update from our CEO Antonio Neri about how we at HPE are addressing this rapidly evolving situation.  We care about our team members, customers and partners, and we want to keep them safe.

For HPE Customers and Partners

While we love the opportunity to talk to our customers, we care more about your safety as well as our employees. Therefore, HPE will not host or participate in any event if we deem it unsafe to do so through April 2020.

Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to cancel or postpone most HPE hosted, co-hosted or sponsored events through April 2020 worldwide, except for a few local events in areas deemed safe to host. 

COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to spread and has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. The safety and well-being of our customers, partners and team members is our top priority. Accordingly, HPE has made the difficult decision to cancel the Discover More event series for the rest of 2020. At this time, HPE Discover 2020 is taking place as planned in Las Vegas, June 23 – 25, 2020.

At HPE, we have a commitment to strengthening the communities where we live and work, and it is our responsibility to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and follow the counsel of public health authorities, including the WHO, and Centers for Disease Control in the U.S.

While we are cancelling the currently planned 2020 Discover More event series, HPE remains optimistic that we will be able to reschedule some Discover More events later in the year. We are also investigating conversion to virtual formats that will deliver the most engaging and informative experiences for all attendees.

Please continue to check back at this site and via social and email communications channels in the coming months for updates from HPE.
