The new HPE Core HPC Software Stack with HPE Insight Cluster Management Utility v8.0 simplifies the configuration, deployment and management of HPC clusters, according to the company.

This integrated and tested stack combines open source-based application development tools, libraries, and compilers with HPE cluster set up and management tools.

The stack is immediately available for download.

To complement the suite, HPE has updated the Apollo

2000 and 6000 servers.

From September, the Apollo 6000 will be available with ProLiant XL260a server trays featuring next-generation Xeon Phi processors.

Both the Apollo 2000 and 6000 are now available with Intel's Omni-Path Architecture (OPA) for reduced latency and increased bandwidth.

"The rapid expansion of data sets, precision analytics, and machine learning, are driving our customers to take a fresh look at their infrastructure requirements," said Intel high performance computing platform group general manager Charles Wuischpard.

"Our Alliance with HPE leverages the Intel Scalable System Framework, featuring the bootable host Intel Xeon Phi processor and the powerful Intel Omni-Path Architecture to deliver new levels of scalability, power efficiency and efficient throughput to support complex, highly parallel workloads."

The Apollo 2000 and 6000 are also available with Mellanox's EDR 100Gbps InfiniBand fabric technology for improved network performance.

"HPC is rapidly becoming one of the essential ingredients for the digital economy across organisations of all types and sizes," said HPE South Pacific servers director Anthony Smith.

"Today we are excited to unveil new additions to our recently announced portfolio capabilities designed to accelerate accessibility and time to value for HPC by significantly simplifying deployments, streamlining management and boosting performance."
