PRESS RELEASE — PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2016) - Today, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (
Once the domain of academics and research institutions, HPC is rapidly making its way into industries like energy, life sciences, financial services and manufacturing. While organizations in these industries recognize the technology's strategic importance, perceived complexity and diversity of HPC environments may appear to outweigh the business benefits. Today's HPE announcement dramatically simplifies the deployment and management of HPC solutions, ensuring companies of all sizes can now accelerate their HPC projects and create competitive differentiation for their business.
"As the global HPC market leader with 35.9 percent market share HPE is upping the ante with new additions to its already-large HPE Apollo portfolio of purpose-built solutions," said Steve Conway, Research Vice President in IDC's High Performance Computing group. "These innovative solutions aim to accelerate HPC adoption by organizations of all sizes and segments by enabling faster time to value and increased competitive differentiation through better parallel processing performance, along with reduced complexity and deployment time."
New Software-Defined Platform for HPC
To simplify and accelerate the configuration, deployment and management of clusters for HPC, HPE is introducing a highly flexible, simple and comprehensive software-defined platform for HPC using the new HPE Core HPC Software Stack with HPE Insight Cluster Management Utility v8.0.
Designed to meet the needs of server cluster environments that may need to scale to thousands of compute nodes, the HPE Core HPC Software Stack is a pre-integrated, pre-tested single software suite that combines open source-based application development tools, libraries, and compilers with HPE cluster management capabilities including HPE iLO and simple cluster set up tools. This suite enables developers, IT administrators, engineers and researchers to quickly and easily develop, test, deploy and manage their HPC environments.
"As a leading research institution focused on applied research in the life sciences industry, we are under continuous pressure to optimize our HPC operations to meet the demanding needs of our users," said Peter Longreen, COO National Life Science Supercomputer, Technical University of Denmark, Deputy head ELIXIR Denmark. "HPE Insight CMU has provided us with comprehensive functionality to effectively manage our large cluster environment with rapid bare metal provisioning, simple monitoring with remote management and easy integration with a wide variety of cluster components."
