Overview:

Do you need increased computing performance for high performance computing (HPC) and deep learning?

The HPE Apollo 6500 Gen10 System is an ideal HPC and deep learning platform providing unprecedented performance with industry-leading1 GPUs, fast GPU interconnect, high bandwidth fabric, and a configurable GPU topology to match your workloads. The ability of computers to autonomously learn, predict, and adapt using massive data sets is driving innovation and competitive advantage across many industries and applications are driving these requirements. The system with rock-solid reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features includes up to eight GPUs per server, NVLink for fast GPU-to-GPU communication, Intel Xeon Scalable processors support, choice of high-speed / low latency fabric, and is workload enhanced using flexible configuration capabilities. While aimed at deep learning workloads, the system is suitable for complex simulation and modeling workloads.

Eight GPU per server for faster and more economical deep learning system training compared to more servers with fewer GPU each. Keep your researchers productive as they iterate on a model more rapidly for a better solution, in less time. Now available with NVLink to connect GPUs at up to 300 GB/s for the world’s most powerful computing servers. HPC and AI models that would consume days or weeks can now be trained in a few hours or minutes.
