Apollo 8000 System

Fuel ground breaking research in science and engineering with leading edge technology, while going greener than ever before. The HPE ProLiant XL740f Gen9 Server supports Intel® Xeon Phi™ 7120D coprocessors. Applications that benefit from coprocessors include seismic processing, biochemistry simulations, weather and climate modeling, image, video and signal processing, computational finance, computational physics, CAE, CFD, and data analytics.

The HPE Apollo 8000 System reaches new heights of performance density, with 4x the teraflops per square foot and up to 40% more FLOPs per watt than comparable air cooled servers.1 At the same time, the HPE Apollo 8000 System helps reduce your carbon footprint, saving up to 3,800 tons of CO2 per year.2 That’s about the same amount of CO2 produced per year by 790 cars!


Performance for Advanced Scientific Computing Workloads

The HPE ProLiant XL740f Gen9 Server has a single 2P node with two Intel® Xeon Phi™ 7120D coprocessors per tray.

Using the Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) programming environment, Intel® Xeon Phi™ 7120D coprocessors accelerate computational applications.

Each node delivers performance density with Intel® Xeon® processors combined with Phi™ 7120D coprocessors, provide the processing power needed to handle a variety of demanding workloads. Supports up to 256 GB memory/node, with an optional SSD.

One high performance FDR InfiniBand port per server tray and 1 Gb NIC per server tray to enhance connectivity and data availability.

Efficient Liquid Cooling Without the Risk

Dry disconnect server trays provide liquid cooling via sealed copper tubes, with heat exchange via thermal bus bars in the rack.

Smart sensors automatically track activities, dynamically adjusting system components to enhance system performance and energy efficiency, while reducing operating expenses.

By coupling smart sensors data with iLO4, advanced power management, and or, an HPC center scheduler, you can create new optimization algorithms to get the most out of your HPE Apollo 8000 System.

Energy and Space Efficiency

The ProLiant XL740f Gen9 Server is 1U half-width and has 4x more performance per square foot than competing air cooled systems so you can pack more research capabilities into less space.

The system gets 40% more FLOPs per watt than air cooled systems for energy savings.1

With the HPE Apollo 8000 System, reduce your carbon footprint, saving up to 3,800 tons of CO2 per year. That’s about the same amount of CO2 produced per year by 790 cars!2

Increase System Uptime with Built-in Technologies

The HPE ProLiant XL740f Gen9 Server supports HPE SmartMemory, preventing data loss and downtime with enhanced error handling while also improving workload performance and power efficiency.

Each ProLiant XL740f Gen9 Server tray supports up to 1200W of HVDC to 12V conversion enabling higher performance components.

    Based on rack and power density, assuming the same processors. Data center square footage for standard rack = 12.5’ x the width of the rack. Apollo f8000 Rack width is the same as an air cooled rack width = 2’. The HPE Apollo f8000 Rack fits 72 servers and 144 accelerators per rack. Standard air cooled racks fit 18 x 2U servers and 36 accelerators with 15-18kW power restrictions. 72/18 = 4 for 4x the performance density.

    Based on a comparison of a 3MW of IT capacity, estimated data center energy savings in kilowatts per hour. Kilowatt per hour savings measured by deploying the HPE Apollo 8000 System (65kW/rack) vs. air-cooled system (limited to 15kW/rack). World Energy Outlook 2013 calculation to convert kW-hr savings to annual CO2 emission savings.
