HPE Introduces the World’s Largest Single-memory Computer

Hewlett Packard Enterprise today introduced the world’s largest single-memory computer, the latest milestone in The Machine research project. “The prototype unveiled today contains 160 terabytes (TB) of memory, capable of simultaneously working with the data held in every book in the Library of Congress five times over—or approximately 160 million books. It has never been possible to hold and manipulate whole data sets of this size in a single-memory system, and this is just a glimpse of the immense potential of Memory-Driven Computing.”

HP Labs Reveals Progress on The Machine

“This radical new approach will fuse memory and storage, flatten data hierarchies, bring processing closer to data, embed security throughout the hardware and software stacks and enable management of the system at scale. Learn more by joining a panel of senior HP Labs researchers working on The Machine as they offer a closer look at what it takes to make it happen.”
