With the latest announcement, HPE builds on its industry leadership in compute technology and sets customers on a path towards Memory-Driven Computing.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced new server portfolio offerings that deliver new levels of performance to help customers accelerate innovation, speed time-to-value and modernize their data centers. These new offerings include:
- New compute platforms with built-in support for Persistent Memory, a technology that combines the performance of high-speed memory and the persistence of storage to deliver new levels of application performance
- New HPE ProLiant Gen9serveroptions and related solutions to help enterprise customers modernize their data centers
- New HPE workload-optimized platforms and solutions including new HPE Apollo and HPE Moonshot systems – designed to deliver new levels of performance and real-time insights for deep learning systems, high-performance computing (HPC) and financial services industry (FSI) applications
“As the industry’s leading server vendor, HPE is committed to bringing new infrastructure innovations to the market that enable organizations to derive more value from their data,” said Vikram K, Director, Servers, Hewlett Packard Enterprise India. “We are delivering on that commitment by delivering a complete Persistent Memory hardware and software ecosystem into our server portfolio, as well as high-performance computing enhancements that will allow customers to increase agility, protect critical information and deliver new applications and services more quickly than ever before.”
These new solutions and technologies for the HPE ProLiant Gen9 portfolio provide organizations with a range of compute innovations that are designed for optimized performance in a hybrid infrastructure environment.
HPE Persistent Memory is designed for accelerating database and analytics workload performance. The new HPE ProLiant Gen9 servers are optimized for the first product in the HPE Persistent Memory portfolio, the HPE 8GB NVDIMM. This technology is ideal for any applications that are constrained by traditional storage bottlenecks.
The HPE 8GB NVDIMM is designed around industry-standard NVDIMM-N technology, working with standards bodies such as JEDEC and SNIA, and includes back-up power from the HPE Smart Storage Battery, which supports up to 16 NVDIMMs for moving data from DRAM to Flash when power is lost.
HPE is working with industry operating system and application providers to enable the software ecosystem for HPE Persistent Memory offerings and to simplify implementation for HPE ProLiant server customers.
In addition, HPE is releasing an innovative edition of Vertica for Hadoop-configured Apollo and ProLiant platforms. The company will also be issuing reference architectures for optimizing HPE Vertica for SQL on Hadoop to deliver fast, advanced analytics. This combined offering helps organizations tackle their largest analytics challenges to support any Hadoop distribution.
