HPE announced today that it shattered 37 world records, establishing undisputed performance and efficiency leadership with the new HPE ProLiant DL325 and HPE ProLiant DL385 servers equipped with the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processor.

Eclipsing previous virtualization performance records by as much as 321 percent and power efficiency records by 28 percent, the new HPE ProLiant DL325 and HPE ProLiant DL385 servers deliver results that redefine value and economics across virtualization, cloud, enterprise infrastructure and data-intensive workloads.

The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors have set the new standard for the modern datacenter with world-record performance and a breakthrough architecture, delivering powerful real-world results for a range of workloads,” said Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager, Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Business Group, AMD. “We are extremely proud to continue our relationship with HPE, a foundational partner for AMD EPYC, with their latest platforms. The HPE ProLiant servers based on 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors will unleash new levels of performance and deliver exceptional TCO to customers looking to transform their datacenter.”

Extracting value from data

Data is the new gold of the 21st century, a trove of value from which enterprises can generate insights to improve business operations and transform customer experience. Quickly analyzing data to extract its value requires exceptional processing, memory and I/O capacity.

The HPE ProLiant DL325 with a single 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processor seized the leadership position in-memory data analytics on Apache Hadoop. The new server soundly defeats the previous leaders in both the 10TB Scaling Factor and the 30TB Scaling Factor with 38 percent and 37 percent performance improvements respectively. In addition, the HPE ProLiant DL325 yielded a 30 percent better price-performance advantage.

Driving sustainability with greater energy efficiency

Global datacenter energy consumption has grown by 155 percent since 2000 and is projected to grow at that same rate for the near future. The new HPE ProLiant DL385 with the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC is now the world’s most power efficient two-processor server, driving server efficiency up 28 percent compared to the previous industry leader.

Results that matter

At the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute, we are committed to accelerating research for a range of sciences and technologies to foster innovation across a breadth of industries,” said Dr. James Wilgenbusch, director, Research Computing, Minnesota Supercomputing Institute at University of Minnesota. “By running our system on the HPE ProLiant DL385 server, based on the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processor, we are gaining significant performance required to power our enormously diverse set of computational workloads, while achieving efficiency and cost savings compared to our previous system.”

Making record-setting results available to HPE customers

HPE makes it simple for customers to achieve record-setting performance and efficiency. Workload matching, a standard feature on HPE ProLiant, brings the expertise of HPE performance engineers to preconfigured profiles that automatically optimize hundreds of BIOS setting combinations to precisely match server resources to workload requirements.

In the next 18 months, HPE plans to accelerate its innovation and collaboration with AMD to triple the number of AMD EPYC-equipped products in the HPE portfolio.
