Safeguard Your Mission-critical Workloads

The HPE Superdome Flex Server delivers the highest service levels on industry standards with extreme and proven RAS capabilities not available on other x86 platforms2

Contain errors at the firmware level, including memory errors, before any interruption can occur at the Operating System layer with HPE's “Firmware First” approach.

Reduce human error with best-in-class predictive fault handling Error Analysis Engine, which predicts hardware faults and initiates self-repair without operator assistance.

Isolate workloads and/or consolidate multiple workloads onto a single managed complex with HPE´s unique x86 hard partitioning (HPE nPars). Service individual partitions and/or reconfigure while other partitions continue to run undisturbed.

Deliver business continuity for Linux® workloads with HPE Serviceguard for Linux (SGLX) high availability and disaster recovery clustering solution. It protects from a multitude of infrastructure and application faults across physical or virtual environments over any distance.
