Meet Apollo: Reinventing HPC and the Supercomputer

Meet Apollo: Reinventing HPC and the Supercomputer

It’s time to look at powerful, modular, solutions which can break all the norms around high performance computing and data gathering.

Administrators, engineers and executives are now tasked with solving some of the world’s most complex challenges revolving around advanced computations for science, business, education, pharmaceuticals and beyond.

The challenge, however, is that many data centers are reaching peak levels of resource consumption making it difficult for these individuals to work around such high-demand applications. How can they continue to create ground-breaking research while still utilizing optimized infrastructure? How can a platform scale to the new needs and demands of these types of users and applications? This is where HP Apollo Systems help reinvent the modern data center and accelerate your business.

New applications are being deployed which require greater amounts of resource utilization. These applications and data sets are critical to helping an organization run and stay ahead of the competition. Most of all, these applications are gathering data, quantifying information and producing critical results.

One of the biggest challenges surrounding the modern, high-intensity, applications revolves around resource consumption and economies of scale. Remember, we’re not just talking about server platforms here. It’s critical to understand where power, cooling, and resource utilization all come into play. This is why modern organizations requiring high levels of processing power must look at new hardware systems capable of providing more power while using less space and being more economical. It’s time to look at powerful, modular, solutions which can break all the norms around high performance computing and data gathering.

This white paper explores HP Apollo Systems, where it can be deployed and how it directly impacts modern, high-performance, application requirements.

The demand for more compute performance for applications used by engineering design automation (EDA), risk modeling, or life sciences is relentless. If you work with workloads like these, your success depends on optimizing performance with maximum efficiency and cost-effectiveness along with easy management for large-scale deployments. Being able to deploy a powerful ProLiant XL230a Server that goes inside the Apollo a6000 Chassis allows for complex multi-threaded applications to truly run optimally.

The clock is always ticking to find the answer, find the cure, predict the next earthquake, and create the next new innovation. That’s really why high-performance computing (HPC) is always striving to find the answers faster to engineering, scientific, and data analysis problems at scale.

For example, the HP Apollo 8000 System offers the world’s first 100 percent, liquid-cooled supercomputer with built-in technology that protects the hardware. Remember, one of the most important ingredients behind modern HPC requirements is scalability. Apollo Systems work with a rack design supporting up to 144 servers per rack. This translates to about four times the teraflops per rack compared to air-cooled designs, and the energy-efficient design helps organizations eliminate up to 3,800 tons of carbon dioxide waste from their data center per year.
