Meeting AI/ML Compute Needs with the HPE Apollo 6500 Gen10 Plus
Companies across most verticals, including manufacturing, financial services, retail and the life sciences, are in need of high-octane compute power. They need solutions that can analyze massive amounts of data and compute like supercomputers do. They need workloads that use high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) to deliver real-time insights that help their businesses operate more efficiently, respond to changes faster, and innovate.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) offers advanced solutions that provide industry-leading performance and flexibility with enterprise reliability. The HPE Apollo 6500 Gen10 Plus Systems deliver exceptional performance, fast insights, and advanced security to fuel better business outcomes. This provides high-density solutions for the most demanding HPC and AI workloads, and utilizes accelerated computing to process data-intensive workloads on GPU architectures.
The HPE Apollo 6500 Gen10 Plus Systemleverages the processing capacity of the latest NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs and both 2nd and 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors and AMD Instinct™ MI100 accelerators to empower data-driven innovation and provide choice. The flexible design of the Apollo 6500 Gen10 Plus chassis allows for support of either two 1P HPE ProLiant XL645d Gen10 Plus servers or a single 2P HPE ProLiant XL675d Gen10 Plus server so that the right solution can be designed to fit your unique workload requirement.
The AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors provide outstanding performance across the wide spectrum of industry-standard applications. Built on the “Zen 3” core and AMD Infinity Architecture, the AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors provide a full feature set across the stack with industry-leading I/O bandwidth, 7nm x86 CPU technology, and embedded security features that help you mitigate risk. AMD EPYC™ 7003 series CPUs provide up to 32MB of L3 cache per core, 4-6-8 memory channel interleaving designed for better economies and performance in multiple DIMM configurations, plus synchronized clocks between fabric and memory, all driving better, faster time to results.
AMD EPYC™ has been engineered for data centers that rely on CPU performance and throughput. From hyper-converged infrastructure to database to big data analytics to high-performance computing, workloads have more cores to work with. AMD EPYC 7003 Series processors scale from 8 to 64 cores (or 16 to 128 threads per socket). No other x86 server processor achieves this level of core density.[i]
Given the importance of today’s workloads, security is a top concern. AMD Infinity Guard is a suite of advanced security features built into the processor die. It is designed to defend against internal and external threats attacking data and to decrease potential attacks that surface as software is booted and executed. Featuring Secure Encrypted Virtualization technologies strengthened with Secure Nested Paging, the AMD EPYC processor is intended to help business power breakthrough data security advancements, such as confidential computing. Secure Memory Encryption helps to safeguard data in certain physical attacks without an impact to overall system performance.
AMD Instinct MI100 GPUs, powered by the AMD CDNA™ architecture and AMD Infinity Fabric™ technologies, provide industry-leading double precision computational performance for HPC with up to 11.5 TFLOPS peak FP64 performance for your most demanding workloads. The MI100 can support your largest data sets and help eliminate traditional bottlenecks in data movement with 32 Gb HBM2 memory and an ultra-high ~1.2 TB/s of memory bandwidth.
