The new era of compute is transforming how we think, work, and innovate. Discover how purpose-built solutions from HPE and AMD meet today’s data center requirements and prepare all organizations for tomorrow’s challenges.
In an age of escalating competition and technological advancement, organizations are racing to gain greater levels of intelligence. For many industries, this means finding new and strategic ways to quickly leverage data in order to drive performance and overcome the world’s greatest challenges.
Advancements in high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) have introduced new data applications which are transforming the way we think, work, and compete. With the right level of compute, these developments enable organizations to solve their biggest problems with heightened intelligence, speed, and precision.
HPE and AMD are pioneering a new era of innovation with robust HPC solutions that expand the application of AI. HPE combines immense compute power with the unparalleled performance of AMD EPYC™ processors to optimize high performance and efficiencies in heterogenous computing with an open data center ecosystem approach. In a world of complexity, you need to help your workloads be more secure, from processes to technologies. AMD Infinity Guard delivers an advanced set of modern security features that include helping decrease potential attack surfaces as software is booted, executed, and processes your critical data.
Today, our deployments are taking these capabilities to the next level. Let’s take a look at how HPE with AMD can help turn your data center into a competitive advantage—setting superior standards for performance, security, and scalability for your most demanding workloads.
The HPE Apollo 6500 Gen10 Plus System is designed to accelerate complex and diverse workloads at any scale. This latest addition to the impressive HPE Apollo portfolio is purpose-built for AI, machine learning, and deep learning in addition to HPC, featuring AMD EPYC server processors that rapidly feed data-devouring AMD Instinct™ accelerators to accomplish more work in less time.
Our joint solutions offer significant advantages:
- High processing capacity for GPU-intensive workloads
- Flexibility to meet the demands of AI workflows
- Agile infrastructure management
- Advanced security features
- Easy deployment with improved reliability and comprehensive support services
Empowering next-generation compute
Solutions from HPE and AMD are flexible to meet today’s data center requirements and prepare for tomorrow’s challenges. The unique AMD Infinity Architecture pushes the boundaries for x86 performance, efficiency, security features, and overall system throughput to deliver on the promise of next generation HPC and enterprise data centers. Organizations around the globe, including prominent research centers, are adopting HPE Cray supercomputers using HPE Apollo 6500 Gen10 Plus nodes to uncover groundbreaking insights with AI.
HPE has developed a two-systems-in-one solution, based on AMD EPYC processors, to conduct weather modeling and forecasting research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). With two supercomputers, the combined systems offer 7.2 petaflops peak performance—a full 6.5 times faster than the previous system. ORNL is using this deployment to forecast stream flow, flooding, and inundation levels to predict future events with greater accuracy as well as the formation, growth, and precipitation of atmospheric clouds through remote sensing to help the U.S military determine how to navigate impacted missions.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is the site of another world-leading HPE deployment with AMD EPYC processors. The U.S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration, and LLNL announced their partnership with HPE to develop their first exascale system. AMD Instinct GPUs provide flexible high performance compute engines, high bandwidth memory, and scalable fabric and communications technologies to support the computational challenges El Capitan is meant to conquer. El Capitan is on track to be the world’s fastest supercomputer, capable of performing 2 quintillion calculations per second. If all 7.7 billion people on Earth each completed one calculation per second, it would take over eight years to do what El Capitan will be capable of doing in a second.
