HPE‚Äôs enhanced portfolio of computing solutions using the new AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ 7003 Series Processor breaks world records with up to 39% better performance and greater energy efficiency to target any workload

HOUSTON, Texas ‚Äď March 15, 2021‚Äď Hew¬≠lett Packard Enter¬≠pri¬≠se (NYSE: HPE) today announ¬≠ced record-brea¬≠king per¬≠for¬≠mance on a wide ran¬≠ge of deman¬≠ding workloads, sur¬≠pas¬≠sing com¬≠pe¬≠ti¬≠tors by up to 39%1 with its new com¬≠pu¬≠ting solu¬≠ti¬≠ons as part of the industry‚Äôs broa¬≠dest set of AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ pro¬≠ces¬≠sor-based offe¬≠rings. By using the new AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ 7003 Series Pro¬≠ces¬≠sor laun¬≠ched today, HPE has secu¬≠red 19 world records in key are¬≠as for opti¬≠mi¬≠zing workload expe¬≠ri¬≠en¬≠ces, inclu¬≠ding achie¬≠ving lea¬≠der¬≠ship posi¬≠ti¬≠ons in vir¬≠tua¬≠liza¬≠ti¬≠on, ener¬≠gy effi¬≠ci¬≠en¬≠cy, data¬≠ba¬≠se ana¬≠ly¬≠tic workloads, and Java appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons. To date, HPE ser¬≠vers and sys¬≠tems using 2nd and 3rd Gen AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors com¬≠bi¬≠ned hold a total of 32 world records.

HPE tack­les deman­ding workloads from the edge to exas­ca­le with new AMD-based solutions

This new port¬≠fo¬≠lio of HPE Pro¬≠Li¬≠ant ser¬≠vers and HPE Apol¬≠lo sys¬≠tems uses the 3rd Gen AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ pro¬≠ces¬≠sor to pro¬≠vi¬≠de foun¬≠da¬≠tio¬≠nal com¬≠pu¬≠te plat¬≠forms that deli¬≠ver unmat¬≠ched per¬≠for¬≠mance, secu¬≠ri¬≠ty, auto¬≠ma¬≠ti¬≠on, and remo¬≠te manage¬≠ment capa¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ties to sup¬≠port a ran¬≠ge of cri¬≠ti¬≠cal workloads that are essen¬≠ti¬≠al to digi¬≠tal trans¬≠for¬≠ma¬≠ti¬≠on. Addi¬≠tio¬≠nal¬≠ly, HPE is offe¬≠ring the HPE Cray EX super¬≠com¬≠pu¬≠ter, lever¬≠aging the 3rd Gen AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ, to power high-end super¬≠com¬≠pu¬≠ting needs, such as exas¬≠ca¬≠le-class sys¬≠tems that are up to 10X fas¬≠ter than today‚Äôs most powerful super¬≠com¬≠pu¬≠ters. With the enhan¬≠ced port¬≠fo¬≠lio and advance¬≠ments to per¬≠for¬≠mance, HPE is enab¬≠ling orga¬≠niza¬≠ti¬≠ons to seam¬≠less¬≠ly sca¬≠le, mana¬≠ge and speed time-to-value for any expe¬≠ri¬≠ence from the edge to exascale.

Deli­ve­ring trus­ted, next-gene­ra­ti­on com­pu­ting in an as-a-ser­vice experience

Cus­to­mers can easi­ly adopt the­se latest HPE solu­ti­ons using HPE Green­La­ke, an ela­s­tic, pay-per-use, as-a-ser­vice plat­form that can run on-pre­mi­ses, at the edge, or in a colo­ca­ti­on faci­li­ty. HPE Green­La­ke com­bi­nes the sim­pli­ci­ty and agi­li­ty of the cloud with the gover­nan­ce, com­pli­ance, and visi­bi­li­ty that comes with hybrid cloud.

‚ÄúDigi¬≠tal trans¬≠for¬≠ma¬≠ti¬≠on is res¬≠ha¬≠ping every indus¬≠try, and new digi¬≠tal models are evol¬≠ving to sup¬≠port the gro¬≠wing adop¬≠ti¬≠on of edge, 5G and arti¬≠fi¬≠ci¬≠al intel¬≠li¬≠gence tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gies as well as adapt to new tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy demands prompt¬≠ed by COVID-19. HPE is addres¬≠sing the¬≠se dyna¬≠mic mar¬≠ket needs every step of the way with high-per¬≠forming solu¬≠ti¬≠ons that can sca¬≠le, secu¬≠re and effi¬≠ci¬≠ent¬≠ly run workloads to speed time-to-value,‚ÄĚ said Neil Mac¬≠Do¬≠nald, seni¬≠or vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent and gene¬≠ral mana¬≠ger, Com¬≠pu¬≠te Busi¬≠ness Group at HPE. ‚ÄúToday, through our long¬≠time col¬≠la¬≠bo¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on and joint engi¬≠nee¬≠ring with AMD, we are deli¬≠ve¬≠ring the big¬≠gest and broa¬≠dest port¬≠fo¬≠lio of com¬≠pu¬≠ting solu¬≠ti¬≠ons, using the new 3rd Gen AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ pro¬≠ces¬≠sor, to trans¬≠form infra¬≠struc¬≠tu¬≠re and pro¬≠vi¬≠de the eco¬≠no¬≠mics, agi¬≠li¬≠ty and ease of manage¬≠ment that is cri¬≠ti¬≠cal to tomorrow‚Äôs data cen¬≠ter needs.‚ÄĚ

Enter­pri­ses gain the most trus­ted, high-per­forming port­fo­lio of advan­ced AMD CPU-based HPE Pro­Li­ant ser­vers to tack­le tomorrow’s workload needs

HPE Pro­Li­ant ser­vers pro­vi­de foun­da­tio­nal intel­li­gence to auto­ma­te manage­ment tasks and opti­mi­ze workload per­for­mance with effi­ci­en­cy to deli­ver bet­ter out­co­mes, fas­ter. The fami­ly of ser­vers also pro­vi­de ver­sa­ti­li­ty and sca­le to sup­port any solu­ti­on for modern IT needs, such as 5G, edge, arti­fi­ci­al intel­li­gence and ana­ly­tics to modern IT capa­bi­li­ties using hyper­con­ver­ged infra­struc­tu­re, con­tai­ners and diver­se CPU and GPU architectures.

Addi­tio­nal­ly, HPE Pro­Li­ant ser­vers pro­vi­de a holi­stic, 360-degree view of secu­ri­ty that is embedded at the sili­con level and starts from the time the ser­ver is manu­fac­tu­red and exten­ded throug­hout ship­ping and dis­tri­bu­ti­on, and final­ly during the end of its life­cy­cle, to pro­vi­de com­ple­te, end-to-end data protection.

As part of the port¬≠fo¬≠lio using the 3rd Gen AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ pro¬≠ces¬≠sor, HPE today intro¬≠du¬≠ced two new ser¬≠ver lines to its gro¬≠wing HPE Pro¬≠Li¬≠ant fami¬≠ly with the HPE Pro¬≠Li¬≠ant DL345 Gen10 Plus ser¬≠ver to tar¬≠get sto¬≠rage-opti¬≠mi¬≠zed solu¬≠ti¬≠ons for data¬≠ba¬≠se workloads, and the HPE Pro¬≠Li¬≠ant DL365 Gen10 Plus ser¬≠ver to tar¬≠get vir¬≠tu¬≠al desk¬≠top infra¬≠struc¬≠tu¬≠re (VDI) solutions.

HPE Apol¬≠lo sys¬≠tems, which are pur¬≠po¬≠se-built to sup¬≠port HPC appli¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠ons such as mode¬≠ling and simu¬≠la¬≠ti¬≠on, help orga¬≠niza¬≠ti¬≠ons of any size acce¬≠le¬≠ra¬≠te busi¬≠ness and rese¬≠arch out¬≠co¬≠mes by effi¬≠ci¬≠ent¬≠ly pro¬≠ces¬≠sing lar¬≠ge amounts of data and tur¬≠ning them into digi¬≠tal models to under¬≠stand how some¬≠thing will look and per¬≠form in the real world. The sys¬≠tems are also opti¬≠mi¬≠zed for arti¬≠fi¬≠ci¬≠al intel¬≠li¬≠gence capa¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ties to impro¬≠ve trai¬≠ning and increase accu¬≠ra¬≠cy in results. HPE is intro¬≠du¬≠cing the HPE Apol¬≠lo 2000 Gen10 Plus and HPE Apol¬≠lo 6500 Gen10 Plus sys¬≠tems with the 3rd Gen of AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ pro¬≠ces¬≠sor to deli¬≠ver even more per¬≠for¬≠mance, effi¬≠ci¬≠en¬≠cy and tar¬≠ge¬≠ted capa¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ties for HPC and AI workloads.

The enhan¬≠ced HPE Apol¬≠lo sys¬≠tems are also enab¬≠ling the new HPE Green¬≠La¬≠ke cloud ser¬≠vices for HPC which are ful¬≠ly mana¬≠ged ser¬≠vices, allo¬≠wing any enter¬≠pri¬≠se to bene¬≠fit from the power of an agi¬≠le, ela¬≠s¬≠tic, pay-per-use cloud expe¬≠ri¬≠ence to tack¬≠le their most deman¬≠ding com¬≠pu¬≠te and data-inten¬≠si¬≠ve workloads and speed time-to-insight through a fle¬≠xi¬≠ble as-a-ser¬≠vice plat¬≠form that cus¬≠to¬≠mers can run on-pre¬≠mi¬≠ses or in a colo¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠on facility.

For high-end super¬≠com¬≠pu¬≠ting solu¬≠ti¬≠ons, HPE deli¬≠vers the HPE Cray EX super¬≠com¬≠pu¬≠ter, which fea¬≠tures an advan¬≠ced HPC archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re desi¬≠gned for next-gene¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on super¬≠com¬≠pu¬≠ting, such as for exas¬≠ca¬≠le-class sys¬≠tems that are 10X fas¬≠ter than today‚Äôs most powerful super¬≠com¬≠pu¬≠ters. The latest HPE Cray EX super¬≠com¬≠pu¬≠ters levera¬≠ge AMD tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy to power some of the world‚Äôs fas¬≠test super¬≠com¬≠pu¬≠ters that are acce¬≠le¬≠ra¬≠ting com¬≠plex sci¬≠en¬≠ti¬≠fic rese¬≠arch across a ran¬≠ge of chal¬≠len¬≠ging are¬≠as from extre¬≠me wea¬≠ther fore¬≠cas¬≠ting and vac¬≠ci¬≠ne dis¬≠co¬≠very to mode¬≠ling and desig¬≠ning auto¬≠mo¬≠bi¬≠les and planes.
