New HPE GreenLake cloud services for HPC will enable any
enterprise to run their most demanding workloads with fully
managed, pre-bundled HPC cloud services to operate in any data
center or colocation environment
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced that it is
accelerating mainstream enterprise adoption of high performance
computing (HPC) by offering its market-leading HPC solutions as a
service through HPE GreenLake. The new HPE GreenLake cloud services
for HPC allow customers to combine the power of an agile, elastic,
pay-per-use cloud experience with the world’s most-proven,
market-leading HPC systems from HPE. Now any enterprise can tackle
their most demanding compute and data-intensive workloads, to power
AI and ML initiatives, speed time to insight, and create new
products and experiences through a flexible as-a-service platform
that customers can run on-premises or in a colocation facility.
The new offering removes the complexity and cost associated with
traditional HPC deployments by delivering fully managed,
pre-bundled services based on purpose-built HPC systems, software,
storage and networking solutions that come in small, medium or
large options. Customers can order these through a self-service
portal with simple point-and-click functions to choose the right
configuration for their workload needs and receive services in
little as 14 days.
“The massive growth in data, along with Artificial Intelligence
and high performance analytics, is driving an increased need for
HPC in enterprises of all sizes, from the Fortune 500 to startups,”
said Peter Ungaro, senior vice president and general manager, HPC
and Mission Critical Solutions (MCS), at HPE. “We are transforming
the market by delivering industry-leading HPC solutions in
simplified, pre-configured services that control costs and improve
governance, scalability and agility through HPE GreenLake. These
HPC cloud services enable any enterprise to access the most
powerful HPC and AI capabilities and unlock greater insights that
will power their ability to advance critical research and achieve
bold customer outcomes.”
World’s Powerful HPC Portfolio Goes Mainstream with
On-Demand, Fully-Managed, Pay-per-use Services
HPC provides massive computing power, along with modeling and
simulation capabilities, to turn complex data into digital models
that help researchers and engineers understand what something will
look like and perform in the real world. HPC also provides optimal
performance to run AI and analytics to increase predictability.
These combined capabilities are used to solve challenges from
vaccine discovery and weather forecasting to improving designs of
cars, planes and even personal and consumer products such as
shampoo and laundry detergent.
According to Intersect360 Research, the HPC market will grow by
more than 40%, reaching almost $55 billion in revenue by 2024, to
support ongoing data growth, including data from emerging
applications and endpoints, such as AI training models and edge
devices, to efficiently process and analyze data.
However, traditional deployment and management of HPC systems is
costly, complex, and resource-intensive. Top concerns involve
system costs, operational costs related to power and cooling, and
lack of skilled HPC technical staff, according to Hyperion
HPE is dramatically simplifying this experience by speeding up
deployment of HPC projects by up 75% and reducing capital
expenditures by up to 40%1 by offering its world-leading HPC
portfolio through HPE GreenLake cloud services. Enterprises can
deploy these services in any data center environment, whether
on-premises in their own enterprise or in a colocation facility,
and gain fully managed services that allow them to pay for only
what they use, empowering them to focus on running their projects
to increase time-to-insight and accelerate innovation.
HPE GreenLake Cloud Services for High Performance Computing
HPE will initially offer an HPC service based on HPE Apollo
systems, combined with storage and networking technologies, which
are purpose-built for running modeling and simulation workloads.
The service also leverages key HPC software for HPC workload
management, support for HPC-specific containers and orchestration,
and HPC cluster management and monitoring. HPE plans to expand the
rest of its HPC portfolio to as-a-service offerings in the
Customers can choose these bundles from small, medium or large
configurations, receive in as little as 14 days, and gain a fully
managed service from HPE.
As part of the offering, customers will gain the following
features to easily manage, deploy and control costs for their HPC
- HPE GreenLake Central offers an advanced software
platform for customers to manage and optimize their HPC
- HPE Self-service dashboard enables users to run and
manage HPC clusters on their own, without disrupting workloads,
through a point-and-click function.
- HPE Consumption Analytics provides at-a-glance analytics
of usage and cost based on metering through HPE GreenLake.
- HPC, AI & App Services standardizes and packages HPC
workloads into containers, making it easier to modernize, transfer
and access data. The factory process is leveraged by experts to
quickly move applications into a container platform as needed.
From Research to Reality: Improving Accuracy, Product Design
Zenseact, a software developer for autonomous driving solutions
based in Sweden and China, uses HPE’s HPC solutions as-a-service
through HPE GreenLake for modeling and simulation capabilities to
analyze the hundreds of petabytes of data it generates globally
from its network of test vehicles and software development centers.
The solutions help fuel Zenseact’s mission to model and simulate
autonomous driving experiences to develop next-generation software
to support driver safety.
“At Zenseact, our mission is to improve Advanced Driver-Assisted
Systems and Automated Driving to create robust and flexible
solutions that will push the envelope in technological innovation
and transform the driving experience,” said Robert Tapper, CIO at
Zenseact. “By deploying HPE’s high performance computing solutions
as-a-service with HPE GreenLake, we are addressing our mission by
performing 10,000 simulations per second, based on driving data
from our test cars, to accelerate insights for designing software
to enable safe autonomous vehicles.”
Other enterprise use case examples include:
- Building safer cars – Car manufacturers can model and
test vehicle functions to improve designs, from simulating
effectiveness of rubber types in tires to performing crash
simulations to test impact for potential injuries to drivers and
- Improving manufacturing with sustainable materials:
Simulation is used to discover new materials for additional,
sustainable options for aluminum and plastic packaging to increase
efficiency and reduce costs.
- Making critical millisecond-decisions in finance
markets: Financial analysts can predict critical stock trends
and trade, and even improve risk management, in milliseconds in a
fast-paced financial services environment where quick and accurate
insight is critical.
- Advancing discovery for drug treatment: Scientists at
research labs and pharmaceutical companies can perform complex
simulations to understand biological and chemical interactions that
can lead to new drug therapies for curing diseases.
- Accelerating oil & gas exploration – Performing
simulations, combined with dedicated seismic analytics, can
increase discovery and accuracy of oil reservoirs while reducing
overall exploration safety risks and costs by identifying when and
where to drill for oil.
Optimizing the HPC Experience with a Dedicated HPC Partner
HPE has a robust ecosystem of HPC partners to help enterprises
easily deploy solutions for any workload need, in any data center
environment. Partners include:
