SUPERCOMPUTING FOR THE EXASCALE COMPUTING ERA

Meet the next era of supercomputing. HPE Cray supercomputers are one of our most significant technology advancements in decades. With it, we’re introducing revolutionary capabilities for revolutionary questions. HPE Cray supercomputers are the next era of supercomputing for your next era of science, discovery, and achievement.

Supercomputing Redesigned

Rethought and re-engineered, we’ve created an entirely new solution to address today’s diversifying needs. Hardware and software innovations tackle challenges that emerge when core counts increase, compute node architectures proliferate, and workflows expand to incorporate AI at scale.

Flexibility for Today and Tomorrow

As your workloads rapidly evolve, the ability to choose your architecture becomes critical. With HPE Cray supercomputing, you can incorporate multiple silicon processing choices—or a heterogeneous mix—with a single management and application development infrastructure. Flex from single to multisocket nodes, GPUs, FPGAs, and other processing options that may emerge, such as AI-specialized accelerators.

Exascale computing era networking

HPE Slingshot is our new high-speed, purpose-built supercomputing interconnect. It features Ethernet capability, advanced adaptive routing, unique congestion control, and sophisticated quality-of-service capabilities. Support for both IP-routed and remote memory operations broaden the range of applications beyond traditional modeling and simulation.

Performs like a supercomputer, Runs like a cloud

The HPE Cray software stack is built on literally decades of supercomputing expertise and is now coupled with a container based model to deliver a new standard in manageability, reliability, availability, resiliency, and interoperability.  Seamlessly scale from development on their laptop or in the cloud to production on a supercomputer.

New era of HPC storage - the best of both worlds

High performance computing storage that is as well suited for the unique storage demands of AI as traditional all-flash enterprise file storage and is as scalable and cost effective as traditional parallel storage.

HPE Cray EX supercomputer

For highest density and efficiency, liquid-cooled cabinetry supports direct liquid cooling of all components in a highly dense bladed configuration. These cabinets contain eight chassis, each of which supports up to eight compute and eight switchblades. The orthogonal orientation of compute to switchblades enables a cable less connection.

HPE Cray supercomputer

A standard 19" rack configuration is also available and gives flexibility for smaller and also air-cooled solutions.  The current compute platform is the Apollo 2000 Gen10 Plus with 4 AMD® EPYC® 7002 nodes in a 2U compute server with HPE Cray software and HPE Slingshot networking installed.
