The HPC expertise of two leaders

The strategic HPC Alliance of HPE and Intel® solidifies our long-term commitment to high-performance computing (HPC) and delivers the benefits of HPC to all organizations. The partnership uses our combined resources to help organizations leverage HPC technologies — including multiprocessing and parallel processing — to drive innovation.

 Accelerating AI’s impact on Big Data

 Advances in autonomous computer learning enable greater speed and accessibility of artificial intelligence technologies to act on big data.

Meeting the enterprise challenges of HPC

System developers and users face obstacles deploying complex new HPC technologies, such as: energy efficiency, reliability and resiliency requirements, or developing software to exploit HPC hardware. All can delay HPC adoption.

HPE and Intel® will collaborate with you on workstream integration, solution sizing, and software-to-hardware integration. We can help with ease of use, mixed workloads, or fast-growing, increasingly complex systems.

More ways to deliver more HPC benefits

As a direct result of HPE and Intel® HPC alliance, we are expanding our portfolio of HPE Apollo purpose-built platforms and related storage lines to leverage big data, big compute, and the internet of things (IoT).

We use Intel® Scalable System Framework (SSF) to develop ready to run HPE Solutions Frameworks for key industries, including financial services, energy, life sciences, and manufacturing. And we are creating products that run HPC workloads using HPE Apollo servers and Intel® SSF elements.

Elements of the HPC Alliance

Intel® Scalable System Framework

Develop and deploy high-performance, scalable, balanced systems. Intel® SSF uses a ubiquitous software ecosystem for insight through compute and data-centric workloads and advanced machine learning.

HPC Centers of Excellence

We bring customers and engineers from HPE and Intel® together in Grenoble, Houston, and Bangalore to optimize customer workloads, characterize performance, and test new technologies using customer code and more.

HPE Solutions with Intel® OPA Fabric

Choose solutions specifically designed and built for HPC and AI. HPE Apollo systems integrated with Intel® Omni-Path Architecture (Intel OPA) span entry-level clusters through supercomputers. Take advantage of the ability to deploy these systems on-premise, off-site, or in a Hybrid Cloud model. With Intel OPA 100 Gbps fabric optimized across our portfolio, HPE has the right HPC solution for you.

Overcoming the world’s biggest challenges

Our alliance is working on HPC for government, life sciences, energy, and financial services. We’re addressing oil and gas exploration, personalized cancer treatment, government research, national security, and capital management.
