Deep integration of HPE and AMD technologies set new standards for performance, efficiency and security vital for enterprise workloads in the cloud and the datacenter

Hew짯lett Packard Enter짯pri짯se (HPE) announ짯ced today that it shat짯te짯red 37 world records, estab짯li짯shing undis짯pu짯ted per짯for짯mance and effi짯ci짯en짯cy lea짯der짯ship with the new HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL325 and HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL385 ser짯vers equip짯ped with the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC꽓 processor.

Eclip짯sing pre짯vious vir짯tua짯liza짯ti짯on per짯for짯mance records by as much as 321 per짯centi and power effi짯ci짯en짯cy records by 28 per짯centii, the new HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL325 and HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL385 ser짯vers deli짯ver results that rede짯fi짯ne value and eco짯no짯mics across vir짯tua짯liza짯ti짯on, cloud, enter짯pri짯se infra짯struc짯tu짯re and data-inten짯si짯ve workloads.

Cus짯to짯mers today are loo짯king for workload-opti짯mi짯zed sys짯tems that crea짯te new expe짯ri짯en짯ces, new oppor짯tu짯ni짯ties and new value, said Jus짯tin Hotard, seni짯or vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Volu짯me Glo짯bal Busi짯ness Unit, HPE. 쏝uil짯ding on the inno짯va짯ti짯on of the HPE Pro짯Li짯ant fami짯ly, the new HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL325 and HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL385 with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC꽓 pro짯ces짯sors unlock new levels of workload opti짯miza짯ti짯on, secu짯ri짯ty and auto짯ma짯ti짯on, pro짯vi짯ding our cus짯to짯mers with a clear and fast path to posi짯ti짯ve busi짯ness outcomes.

The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors have set the new stan짯dard for the modern dat짯a짯cen짯ter with world-record per짯for짯mance and a breakth짯rough archi짯tec짯tu짯re, deli짯ve짯ring powerful real-world results for a ran짯ge of workloads, said For짯rest Nor짯rod, seni짯or vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Dat짯a짯cen짯ter and Embedded Solu짯ti짯ons Busi짯ness Group, AMD. 쏻e are extre짯me짯ly proud to con짯ti짯nue our rela짯ti짯onship with HPE, a foun짯da짯tio짯nal part짯ner for AMD EPYC, with their latest plat짯forms. The HPE Pro짯Li짯ant ser짯vers based on 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors will unleash new levels of per짯for짯mance and deli짯ver excep짯tio짯nal TCO to cus짯to짯mers loo짯king to trans짯form their datacenter.

New mea짯su짯res in vir짯tu짯al environments

Vir짯tua짯liza짯ti짯on dri짯ves ser짯ver resour짯ce uti짯liza짯ti짯on up and ope짯ra짯tio짯nal cos짯ts down, making vir짯tua짯liza짯ti짯on per짯for짯mance a key mea짯su짯re of cloud and data cen짯ter effec짯ti짯ve짯ness and efficiency.

The HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL385 with two 2nd Gen AMD EPYC꽓 pro짯ces짯sors crus짯hed the pre짯vious vir짯tua짯liza짯ti짯on world record with 61 per짯cent bet짯ter per짯for짯mancei at a 29 per짯cent bet짯ter pri짯ce-per짯for짯mance ratioii.

In a simi짯lar fashion for data짯ba짯se vir짯tua짯liza짯ti짯on, the HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL325 deli짯ver짯ed an astoun짯ding 321 per짯cent per짯for짯mance boost over the pre짯vious record hol짯der, pro짯vi짯ding a signi짯fi짯cant agi짯li짯ty advan짯ta짯ge in data짯ba짯se pro짯vi짯sio짯ning and main짯ten짯an짯ce for cloud, big data and IoT environments.

Per짯for짯mance and effi짯ci짯en짯cy at the짯se levels allow more workloads to run on fewer ser짯vers, redu짯cing not only hard짯ware acqui짯si짯ti짯on and ope짯ra짯tio짯nal cos짯ts but also soft짯ware cos짯ts whe짯re appli짯ca짯ti짯ons are licen짯sed on a per pro짯ces짯sor basis.

 

Extra짯c짯ting value from data

Data is the new gold of the 21st cen짯tu짯ry, a tro짯ve of value from which enter짯pri짯ses can gene짯ra짯te insights to impro짯ve busi짯ness ope짯ra짯ti짯ons and trans짯form cus짯to짯mer expe짯ri짯ence. Quick짯ly ana짯ly짯zing data to extra짯ct its value requi짯res excep짯tio짯nal pro짯ces짯sing, memo짯ry and I/O capacity.

The HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL325 with a sin짯gle 2nd Gen AMD EPYC꽓 pro짯ces짯sor sei짯zed the lea짯der짯ship posi짯ti짯on in-memo짯ry data ana짯ly짯tics on Apa짯che Hadoop. The new ser짯ver sound짯ly defeats the pre짯vious lea짯ders in both the 10TB Sca짯ling Fac짯tori and the 30TB Sca짯ling Fac짯torii with 38 per짯cent and 37 per짯cent per짯for짯mance impro짯ve짯ments respec짯tively. In addi짯ti짯on, the HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL325 yiel짯ded a 30 per짯cent bet짯ter pri짯ce-per짯for짯mance advan짯ta짯geiii.

Dri짯ving sus짯taina짯bi짯li짯ty with grea짯ter ener짯gy efficiency

Glo짯bal dat짯a짯cen짯ter ener짯gy con짯sump짯ti짯on has grown by 155 per짯cent sin짯ce 2000 and is pro짯jec짯ted to grow at that same rate for the near future.iv

The new HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL385 with the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC꽓 is now the world셲 most power effi짯ci짯ent two-pro짯ces짯sor ser짯ver, dri짯ving ser짯ver effi짯ci짯en짯cy up 28 per짯cent com짯pared to the pre짯vious indus짯try leader.

Results that matter

At the Min짯ne짯so짯ta Super짯com짯pu짯ting Insti짯tu짯te, we are com짯mit짯ted to acce짯le짯ra짯ting rese짯arch for a ran짯ge of sci짯en짯ces and tech짯no짯lo짯gies to fos짯ter inno짯va짯ti짯on across a breadth of indus짯tries, said Dr. James Wil짯gen짯busch, direc짯tor, Rese짯arch Com짯pu짯ting, Min짯ne짯so짯ta Super짯com짯pu짯ting Insti짯tu짯te at Uni짯ver짯si짯ty of Min짯ne짯so짯ta. 쏝y run짯ning our sys짯tem on the HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL385 ser짯ver, based on the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC꽓 pro짯ces짯sor, we are gai짯ning signi짯fi짯cant per짯for짯mance requi짯red to power our enorm짯ously diver짯se set of com짯pu짯ta짯tio짯nal workloads, while achie짯ving effi짯ci짯en짯cy and cost savings com짯pared to our pre짯vious system.

Making record-set짯ting results available to HPE customers

HPE makes it simp짯le for cus짯to짯mers to achie짯ve record-set짯ting per짯for짯mance and effi짯ci짯en짯cy. Workload matching, a stan짯dard fea짯ture on HPE Pro짯Li짯ant, brings the exper짯ti짯se of HPE per짯for짯mance engi짯neers to pre짯con짯fi짯gu짯red pro짯files that auto짯ma짯ti짯cal짯ly opti짯mi짯ze hundreds of BIOS set짯ting com짯bi짯na짯ti짯ons to pre짯cis짯e짯ly match ser짯ver resour짯ces to workload requirements.

Workload matching was used exten짯si짯ve짯ly to achie짯ve the new HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL325 and HPE Pro짯Li짯ant DL385 bench짯mark results.

Taking holi짯stic, 360-degree approach to security

Cyber-attacks have beco짯me more fre짯quent, per짯va짯si짯ve and sophisti짯ca짯ted, pro짯ving the typi짯cal peri짯me짯ter secu짯ri짯ty stra짯tegy inadequate.

HPE takes a uni짯que holi짯stic, 360-degree approach to secu짯ri짯ty, arming the ser짯ver with inno짯va짯ti짯ve firm짯ware pro짯tec짯tion, mal짯wa짯re detec짯tion and firm짯ware reco짯very capa짯bi짯li짯ties right down to the silicon.

The HPE-exclu짯si짯ve sili짯con root of trust has alre짯a짯dy made the HPE Pro짯Li짯ant the world셲 most secu짯re indus짯try stan짯dard ser짯ver.i Now, with the inte짯gra짯ti짯on of the new AMD EPYC꽓-embedded Secu짯re Pro짯ces짯sor into the HPE sili짯con root of trust, cus짯to짯mers gain even more protection.

The inte짯gra짯ti짯on of the HPE sili짯con root of trust and the AMD Secu짯re Pro짯ces짯sor pro짯vi짯des for a BIOS-level dou짯ble vali짯da짯ti짯on of the ser짯ver, first by the HPE sili짯con root of trust as the ser짯ver initia짯li짯zes then, again, by the AMD Secu짯re Pro짯ces짯sor befo짯re the AMD EPYC꽓 starts, pre짯ven짯ting the ser짯ver from boot짯ing should the firm짯ware be com짯pro짯mi짯sed in any way.

This inte짯gra짯ted dou짯ble vali짯da짯ti짯on pro짯tects appli짯ca짯ti짯ons and data plus pre짯vents the spread of mal짯wa짯re to other con짯nec짯ted infra짯struc짯tu짯re resources.

Expan짯ding the HPE port짯fo짯lio with AMD EPYC

In the next 18 months, HPE plans to acce짯le짯ra짯te its inno짯va짯ti짯on and col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on with AMD to tri짯ple the num짯ber of AMD EPYC꽓-equipped pro짯ducts in the HPE portfolio.
