HPE makes supercomputing accessible to more enterprises

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has expanded its supercomputer offerings to make supercomputing accessible to more enterprises.

The new supercomputers are the HPE Cray EX2500, XD2000 and XD6500.

Based on the same architecture as the HPE Cray EX4000, HPE Cray EX2500 is 24 percent smaller to fit inside an enterprise data centre. Its form factor features 100 percent direct-liquid cooling to improve energy efficiency, and enables a cost-effective solution for larger enterprises that want greater performance at scale but in a smaller implementation and lower carbon footprint.

HPE Cray XD2000 and XD6500 supercomputers offer highly dense, purpose-built servers to provide maximum performance for advanced workloads including modeling, simulation and AI. The new HPE Cray XD supercomputers are compatible with traditional enterprise data centres, providing the flexibility and broad range of options to customise technologies across CPUs, accelerators, storage, interconnect, and power and cooling options, depending on workload needs.

“With the expanded portfolio of HPE Cray supercomputers, that leverage our world-leading exascale technologies, we are empowering broader commercial and public sector organisations to seize a growing opportunity by making supercomputing accessible to meet their scale and data centre needs,” said Trish Damkroger, Chief Product Officer and Senior Vice President of HPC, AI and Labs at HPE.

These new supercomputers will help enterprises take advantage of modeling and simulation capabilities to create digital representations that help them understand how something will look and perform in the physical world before productising it. Enterprises can leverage supercomputing to build and train larger, robust AI models on useful applications, such as natural language processing and computer vision, to predict outcomes faster.

Enterprises in energy, such as oil and gas, financial services, health and life sciences, and manufacturing, can benefit from powerful technologies by adopting supercomputing solutions that fit within their data centre size, scale and budget needs.

The new supercomputers support the latest CPUs, GPUs and accelerators to provide advanced compute and accelerated compute capabilities to support demanding workloads.
