HPE has launched a new GreenLake HPC [high-performance-compute] pay-per-use cloud service that brings affordable supercomputing offerings to midsize and even small businesses.

Supercomputing For The Masses

Hewlett Packard Enterprise is taking the next big step in its cloud services march with a breakthrough new GreenLake HPC [high-performance compute] cloud service that brings affordable supercomputing power to midsize and even small businesses.

“HPE is accelerating our mainstream adoption for high-performance computing through HPE GreenLake, so think of this as delivering supercomputing as a service to the masses,” said HPE GreenLake Cloud Services Business Group General Manager Keith White. “We have a unique opportunity to provide customers with the power of an agile, elastic, pay-per-use cloud experience with HPE’s market-leading HPC systems.”

HPE said the new cloud service—which comes in small, medium and large options—allows customers and partners to order HPC as a service through a self-service portal with delivery from configuration to rollout in as few as 14 days.

HPE said the service will slash by 40 percent the big-ticket, capital expenditure price for HPC systems that previously cost hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars. What’s more, HPE said the new service will speed up the deployment of HPC rollouts by 75 percent.

The GreenLake HPC service is aimed at bringing supercomputing technologies “from the peak of the pyramid” to a single rack or a single server for any small or midsize data center or even for HPE colocation providers, said HPE Senior President and General Manager of HPC and Mission Critical Systems Peter Ungaro.

“This is really about a new era of computing where we’re going to take the very same Exascale era technologies that we are building for massive systems and use that very same HPC technology to harness the explosion of data that is happening in every enterprise, large and small,” said Ungaro. “We are going to help those customers process that data and unlock insights faster.”

The new HPE GreenLake cloud service, which initially will be offered on HPE Apollo systems, will be available in the spring of 2021. The new offering is available to HPE partners, said White.
