Servers – HPE Apollo Systems

High Density Optimized, Hyperscale Servers


Hewlett Packard launched the Apollo Family of High Performance Computing systems in June 2014. They are density optimized for HPC, big data, and more. HPE’s Apollo servers are 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, 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.

Apollo 10

Apollo 10

Built on HPC expertise

We devised the Apollo 10 series based on our extensive expertise in HPC, data management, visualization, systems management, and High Performance Data Analysis (HPDA). From this foundation, you can implement optimal HPC and deep learning solutions that take advantage of responsive and flexible support along with committed account and technical resource teams.

GPU with unprecedented floating point operations

The NVIDIA Accelerators rapidly process large data volumes and perform floating point operations at an unprecedented per compute node/rack basis.

CPU with massive parallelism and vectorization

Intel® Xeon® Phi is a self-hosted many core processor with massive parallelism and vectorization for workloads like genomics. It delivers more compute per unit of energy versus comparable platforms.

Customize for required workloads

You can customize your HPE Apollo 10 server by choosing from the available CPUs, memory options, network adapters, and hard drives or solid state drives.

Factory integration and testing

Fully integrated and factory tested clusters are delivered with a complete cluster management software stack to simplify deployment and management. They can be custom configured for right-sizing.
