HPE Apollo Server Systems

Breakthrough performance with economies of power and cooling in less space.

Apollo high-density servers for HPC, Big Data and more

Density-optimised water-cooled servers for HPC, Big Data and More

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.

The HPE Apollo high-density server family is built for the highest levels of performance, and efficiency. They are rack-scale compute, storage, and networking solutions designed for massive scale-out. With a tiered approach for organisations of all sizes, they are suitable for your big data analytics, object storage, and high-performance computing (HPC) workloads. HPE Apollo features water-cooling that’s far more efficient than air as well as “right-sized scaling” with 2X the compute density for workgroup and private cloud workloads.

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 servers optimised for specific workloads types and sizes.

Scale-up and Scale-out Workload Optimised Solutions

Scale

Optimise scale, performance and cost-efficiency for each type of data, and manage volume, velocity and variety accordingly. Use HPE Apollo servers to provide just the capacity and performance you need with scale-up and scale-out, workload-optimised solutions.

High-density Economic Building Blocks

Economics

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 42U1 rack in the HPE Apollo 4500.

Coming later in 2017: Extreme Performance in High Density

Extreme performance in high density

Apollo 6000 Gen10 System offers HPC with extreme performance in high density. We’ve taken the lead on a new Approach– thinking beyond the server and designing a rack-level solution that gives the right compute at the right economics.

Water-cooled Supercomputing

The HPE Apollo 8000 is the world’s first water-cooled server. Our systems accomplish groundbreaking speed, density, energy-efficiency and even economic and ecological sustainability.

Institution aims to create the world’s most efficient data centre with the HPE Apollo 8000 System.

  1. Based on 10 HPE Apollo 4530 Systems with 8TB HDDs
  2. Top500.org’s Green500, June 2017.
  3. Based on typical operating conditions: Data centre water at least 5°C cooler than data centre air ambient temperatures; the HPE SGI 8600 is data centre “room neutral” and exudes no heat into the data centre and does not add any load to data centre air cooling equipment.
  4. Claim: Scaling to >10,000 nodes without additional switches4 using integrated switches and hypercube technology. Substantiation: 4 HPE Internal testing on SGI ICE XA hierarchical cluster auto-provisioning up to 10K+ nodes, June 2015. Calculation: go to https://www.nas.nasa.gov/hecc/resources/pleiades.html and add up nodes stated by NASA on their public page under “Pleaides Node Detail” Pleiades is the name of the ICE system installed there.  Stated is 2016+2088+5400+1936 which equals 11440 nodes. NASA Pleiades, May 2017.
  5. Substantial savings in cooling costs with Closed-Loop Airflow, which ensures no air within the cell is mixed with data centre air Substantiation: HPE Internal Engineering study “Liquid Cooling Value Proposition”, WWAS February 2017
