Hyperscale and enterprise datacenters have become increasingly conscious of efficiency, ensuring the optimal amount of hardware resources are dialed-in to the specific needs of their workloads. For many workloads, density-optimized servers have evolved to deliver on the promise of OPEX savings (power/cooling, space) without sacrificing system performance.

HP is expanding their density-optimized portfolio with the release of the Apollo 6000 System. This new server is designed to address the needs of lightly-threaded HPC applications like Electronic Design Automation (EDA) and Monte Carlo Simulations (used for financial risk modeling and various engineering/scientific applications). The system offers high per-thread performance, robust network bandwidth, and rack-level shared infrastructure for efficiency.

The lightly-threaded HPC segment provides a nice entry point for the Apollo 6000 System, but it is relatively small. To increase market penetration for the Apollo 6000 System, HP’s future trays should target other HPC and web scale workloads with differentiated capabilities like workload accelerators, storage options and other processor types.
