HPE said its HPC as a service offering will dramatically simplify the experience by speeding up the deployment of HPC projects by up to 75% and reducing capital expenditures by up to 40%.
Enterprises can deploy the fully managed services in any data centre environment, the firm added, allowing them to pay for only what they use, focus on running projects to increase time-to-insight and accelerate innovation.
HPE will initially offer an HPC service based on HPE Apollo Systems, combined with storage and networking technologies, which are purpose-built for running modelling and simulation workloads. The firm then plans to expand the rest of its HPC portfolio to as a service offerings in future.
GreenLake for HPC is available in small, medium or large options that can be ordered via a self-service portal, with the service then ready in less than 14 days.
