HPE Apollo Servers

Density Optimized for High-Performance Computing and Advanced Data Analytics Workloads


Hewlett Packard launched the Apollo Family of High Performance Computing systems in June 2014. They are density optimized for HPC, AI, Big Data, and more. HPE designed the Apollo Server Systems to address the needs of lightly threaded HPC applications, it offers high per-thread performance, robust network bandwidth, and rack-level shared infrastructure. 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, deep learning and AI training, and other high performance computing workloads. Recent innovations in HPC technology are allowing research typically being done in government and academia accessible to enterprise customers, who are using Apollo solutions to enhance research and development efforts and gain a competitive edge.
