Neri Sees HPE Competitors Hitting A Hardware Wall

Neri, who led the strategy and development teams for HPE's SuperDome X, considered the world's most scalable in-memory compute platform, sees HPE's aggressive memory-driven computing road map as a major competitive advantage in the years ahead.

In fact, Neri said Moore's Law—the maxim that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles about every two years, resulting in exponential increases in processing power—has hit a wall.

"We have been talking about the fact that Moore’s Law is going to hit a wall," said Neri, reflecting on the current state of processor development and manufacturing. "I mean less than 10 nanometers [the current state-of-the-art size of Intel processors]. Then I think we'll see 7 [nanometer, maybe 4 nanometers] and then after that, what? You’re going to have it implanted in your head? It’s not going to work. And the issue is that every time we do that obviously we're trying to manage the cost of power consumption, but the reality is it’s not scaling at the same pace that data is scaling. And so that means you have to glue things together to catch where that data curves. And so we thought about how we do that and we moved the computational side above the data, not below the data. And that’s why we have to make memory and storage the core of the architecture."

HPE's all-out memory-driven computing offensive is also destined to pay big dividends on the security front, said Neri. "The more we go to memory-driven compute, everything in that transaction is going to be encrypted," he said. "You have an unbelievable opportunity here. When we sell our memory-driven compute platforms by 2020, every aspect of that is already taken care of. It's all encrypted at the core, from the app down to the infrastructure."
