In this slidecast, John Gromala from HP describes the company’s new Apollo series of HPC servers. Tailor-made for the HPC market, the Apollo Series combines a modular design with innovative power distribution and air- and liquid-cooling techniques for extreme performance at rack scale, providing up to four times more performance per square foot than standard rack servers.
We are seeing up to 35% performance increase in our Electronic Design Automation application workloads,” said Kim Stevenson, CIO of Intel. “We have deployed more than 5,000 of these servers, achieving better rack density and power efficiency, while delivering higher application performance to Intel silicon design engineers.”
In terms of density, the HP Apollo 8000 stands alone in being able to deliver a Petaflop (without accelerators) in just four racks!
