Design, deliver, and run enterprise blockchain workloads quickly and easily.
Storage for HPC
A comprehensive portfolio of dedicated storage products that enable the full power of HPC by supporting clustered computing and distributed parallel computing.
HPC requires high performance storage
High performance computing (HPC) compute differs dramatically from enterprise compute. Enterprise involves small file sizes and the movement of a few files. HPC has large data sets run in parallel across multiple servers within a cluster and distributed across multiple storage servers, with all data accessible to all servers. HPC requires a parallel distributed file system to provide the necessary high speed concurrent access to the data. Without it, expensive CPUs starve for data and processing is delayed
Enterprise storage can't handle HPC
Imagine an 800 horsepower engine running on bicycle tires. The tires couldn’t handle the power and it would be wasted. HPC is like that engine. Enterprise storage can’t handle its power. To achieve the full value of HPC, you need storage designed for HPC.
HPE storage for HPC delivers
We offer a comprehensive set of easily deployed turnkey HPC storage solutions that can optimize your resources and scale with you.
Leverage turnkey deployment with factory integration and configuration to get up and running quickly and easily.
Automatically move data to the lowest cost storage based on administrator-defined policies. Data demanding fast response can use SSDs, while slower response data can be placed on hard drives.
Do less repetitive, time consuming work and speed processing by leveraging automatic staging of data as needed for an application.
