Apollo 10 Systems

Now, even the smallest department can run deep learning and mixed workload HPC on industry-standard accelerated compute servers.

Apollo 10 Systems Apollo 10 Systems

Entry-level HPC on a standard platform

HPE Apollo 10 series makes High Performance Computing (HPC) and deep learning affordable. Low entry costs combine with a flexible industry standard platform, custom solutions, and a choice of components. Apollo 10 series servers readily integrate into standard cluster environments.

Built on HPC expertise

We devised the Apollo 10 series based on our extensive expertise in HPC, data management, visualisation, systems management, and High Performance Data Analysis (HPDA). From this foundation, you can implement optimal HPC and deep learning solutions that take advantage of responsive and flexible support along with committed account and technical resource teams.

GPU with unprecedented floating point operations

The NVIDIA Accelerators rapidly process large data volumes and perform floating point operations at an unprecedented per compute node/rack basis.

CPU with massive parallelism and vectorisation

Intel® Xeon® Phi is a self-hosted many core processor with massive parallelism and vectorisation for workloads like genomics. It delivers more compute per unit of energy versus comparable platforms.

Customise for required workloads

You can customise your HPE Apollo 10 server by choosing from the available CPUs, memory options, network adapters, and hard drives or solid state drives.

Factory integration and testing

Fully integrated and factory tested clusters are delivered with a complete cluster management software stack to simplify deployment and management. They can be custom configured for right-sizing.

Flexible HPC for scientific workloads

Optimised for deep learning, life sciences, and weather simulation, the 2U HPE Apollo kl20 platform offers >12 x86 Tflops and up to 272 cores. Coming soon.
