HPE Apollo Systems

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

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

Density-optimized 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, and networking solutions designed for massive scale-out. With a tiered approach for organizations 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 Organization

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 optimized for specific workloads types and sizes.

Scale-up and Scale-out Workload Optimized Solutions


Optimize 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-optimized solutions.

High-density Economic Building Blocks


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 SGI 8600 System is a liquid cooled, tray-based, scalable, high-density clustered computer system designed from the ground up to run complex high performance computing (HPC) workloads at petaflop speeds, scale seamlessly to thousands of nodes, and deliver leading energy efficiency.

  2. Top500.org’s Green500, June 2017.
  3. Based on typical operating conditions: Data center water at least 5°C cooler than data center air ambient temperatures; the HPE SGI 8600 is data center “room neutral” and exudes no heat into the data center and does not add any load to data center 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.
