HPE Apollo Systems
Breakthrough performance with economies of power and cooling in less space.
The HPE Apollo high-density server family is built for the highest levels of performance and efficiency. They are rack-scale compute, storage, networking, power and cooling – massively scale-up and scale-out – solutions for your big data analytics, object storage and high-performance computing (HPC) workloads. From water-cooling that’s 1,000X more efficient than air, to “right-sized scaling” with 2X the compute density for workgroup and private cloud workloads, the HPE Apollo line is a dense, high-performance, tiered approach for organisations of all sizes.
New Possibilities for the Data-Driven Organisation
Add purpose-built Compute to your infrastructure and accelerate time to value by reducing implementation time from months to days. Apply just the right amount of scalability, performance and efficiency with a selection of hyperscale server systems optimised for specific workloads types and sizes.
Optimise scale, performance and cost-efficiency for each type of data, and manage volume, velocity and variety accordingly. Use HPE Apollo to provide just the capacity and performance you need with scale-up and scale-out, workload-optimised solutions.
Enjoy significant capital and operating expense savings with high-density economic building blocks for efficient implementations at scale. Achieve up to 30 servers and 3.6 petabytes of capacity in a 42U4 rack in the HPE Apollo 4500.
The HPE Apollo 8000 is the world’s first warm-water liquid cooling system. These systems accomplish groundbreaking speed, density, energy-efficiency and even economic and ecological sustainability.
