With the launch of Apollo 6500 Gen10 server, HPE takes industrial AI to the next level of efficiency and performance

With an aim to offering end-to-end HPC (high performance computing) solutions, which make any industrial AI (artificial intelligence) initiatives truly reliable and efficient, HP Enterprise (HPE), has come out with a powerful hardware platform— Apollo 6500 Gen10 server—along with a slew of associated services in the Indian market.

“Global tech giants are investing heavily in AI, but the majority of enterprises are struggling both with finding viable AI use cases and with building technology environments that support their AI workloads. As a result, the gap between leaders and laggards is widening,” said Rajesh Dhar, Senior Director, Pointnext, HPE India. “HPE is best positioned to help customers make AI work for their enterprise, regardless of where they are in their AI adoption. While others provide AI components, we provide complete AI solutions from strategic advisory to purpose-built technology, operational support and a strong AI partner ecosystem to tailor the right AI solution for each organization”, added Dhar.

The new HPE Apollo 6500 Gen10 System with support for eight NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs delivers dramatic increases in application performance, enabling a 3x faster model training than previous generations. As a result, enterprises can realize deep learning business outcomes faster. HPE closely collaborated with NVIDIA to embed the high-bandwidth, energy-efficient NVIDIA NVLink interconnect into HPE Apollo 6500 Gen10, enabling ultra-fast communication between GPUs. This technology allows data sharing at rates of up to 10x faster than the traditional PCIe Gen3 interconnect. To increase flexibility and choice for customers, HPE is extending its broad ecosystem of AI solution partners by entering an agreement with WekaIO to resell its file storage software WekaIO MATRIX, complementing HPE’s Lustre-based storage solutions.

On the services front, HPE Digital Prescriptive Maintenance Services, automates problem prevention and increases productivity of industrial equipment. While predictive maintenance detects when an industrial equipment is likely to fail, prescriptive maintenance predicts, suggests and automates the right action to fix the problem before it causes harm. According to McKinsey Global Institute, AI-enabled asset maintenance can lead to up to 20 percent EBIT improvement in industries like electric utilities by increasing capital productivity.

While, HPE Artificial Intelligence Transformation Workshop—providing consulting expertise from HPE Pointnext to help customers get started with AI—evolve their strategic data and analytics initiatives and prioritize AI use cases. At the same time, HPE has also extended its AI partner ecosystem through a reseller agreement with WekaIO to deliver optimized storage performance in AI environments.
