Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced a range of workload-optimised compute platforms and solutions to help boost its customers' innovation as they flock to high-performance computing applications.

At the centre of its new offering, sits HPE's GPU-accelerated deep learning platform - Apollo 6500 - which runs on up to eight high performance NVIDIA GPU cards to offer improved learning systems to organisations that need to quickly model results without dramatically increased costs.

It will be especially useful for those working in the financial sector, where scalable, big data applications are in demand to help process high volumes of data generated by real-time trading.

The Apollo 4520 system is a dual-node system designed to lower costs for organisations that need to support parallel file system architectures as part of their HPC implementation. It can be used in conjunction with Lustre solutions either via an HPE supported Lustre solution, based on the Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre software or Open Source Lustre with community support.

"As high performance and webscale applications become mainstream, HPE's continued focus on this market is yielding positive results for our customers," said Bill Mannel, vice president and general manager, HPC, Big Data and IoT Servers, HPE.
