High-Performance Computing Solutions
Unlock your data with high-performance computing
High-performance computing helps you unlock your data…and then define it. HPC aggregates computing power to deliver much higher performance than what you can get out of a typical desktop computer or workstation, creating the computational power needed to solve the world’s most complex problems in science, engineering, and business. Using parallel processing, HPC runs advanced applications efficiently, reliably, and quickly — functioning at rates at or above a teraflop, or 1,012 floating-point operations per second.
HPE and Intel® OPA: better together
What do you get when you combine HPE servers with Intel Omni-Path Architecture? An integrated fabric cluster that delivers better performance, cost-effectiveness, cluster experience, and complete cluster solutions. Building an HPE-Intel foundation gives you better HPC-fabric integration, better performance and quality of service, and an open-source stack with application compatibility.
Break through any supercomputing challenge
For many years, cost implications limited high-performance computing to the most intensive, research-driven government projects. Now, thanks to advancements in HPC technology and reduced system pricing, businesses in a wide range of industries are implementing HPC to unlock their data in order to gather faster business insights, run high-performance data analytics, fuel artificial intelligence, and gain competitive advantage1.
Bringing more HPC power to more industries
Turbocharging engineering productivity
Outdated workstations and space-constrained storage create slow performance that lengthens development cycles for computer-aided engineering (CAE). The right HPC system can improve collaboration, speed product design with accelerated virtual prototyping, and ensure greater fidelity in advanced simulations of your most complex models. Scale out your infrastructure with pre-configured or custom-architected HPC clusters — HPE HPC solutions can help you move from design to market faster.
Adding up the benefits of HPC
The faster money moves, the faster it can grow. From high-frequency trading to risk compliance, HPE HPC solutions are tailored to help you shave milliseconds off trading time, gain more insights from your data, and comply with ever-changing financial industry regulations.
Analyzing more data, mapping better outcomes
Genomic data is revolutionizing healthcare, but sequencing and analysis of these massive data sets requires high-performance computing and connectivity. Discover more disease insights when you deploy more bandwidth for your demanding workloads — pair HPE high-performance computing clusters with high-performance switches from HPE partners.
Accelerating energy research with advanced supercomputing
Discovering new reserves with HPC
With most easy-to-find conventional fields already in production, legacy discovery and extraction processes are no longer enough to keep companies competitive in oil and gas exploration. The industry’s focus has shifted to finding the unconventional and deep-water fields that fields that have now become important, yet remain elusive — rich resource reservoirs located in places that can be predicted only by HPC. This supercomputing endeavor means larger data sets, requires the vision and means to scale, and yields insights that can be leveraged for real-time decisions with billion-dollar implications. Read the article to learn the top three factors to consider when planning your O&G supercomputing build-out.
Powering faster research and development
Running detailed models that simulate complex processes, systems, and phenomena requires massive computing power. The National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) turned to HPE to build its new Eagle supercomputer, an integrated HPC system that’s 3.5 times more powerful and energy-efficient than the current system. Eagle’s accelerated performance will advance early research and development on energy technologies across vehicle, wind power, and data sciences.
Putting theories to the test
Attracting world-class researchers requires world-class HPC capabilities in your higher-education lab. HPE HPC systems help you harness supercomputing performance for computationally intensive tasks with massive data sets across multiple disciplines, including true artificial intelligence and deep learning.
What’s new in HPC
Fill up your racks without heating up your data center
The new HPE adaptive rack-cooling system enables full-rack power density, without adding to the heat load within your data center. Using a closed-loop, room-agnostic design, the system captures heat at the source for power efficiency and increases data center density, without extensive cooling upgrades.
Bringing greater operational intelligence to Apollo systems
HPE InfoSight is now available on select HPE Apollo systems, employing embedded AI and integrating seamlessly with HPE integrated Lights Out (iLO). Infosight- and iLO-enabled Apollo systems deliver lower operating expenses, fewer trouble tickets through auto-generated support cases, enhanced customer-support capabilities, and faster time to problem resolution.
InfoSight is available on the HPE Apollo 2000, 6000, 6500, and 4510 Gen10 systems and provides:
- Predictive data analytics for parts failure
- System wellness dashboard
