Taking “Converged” to “Ultra” Converged With the New Citrix WorkspacePod™ Powered by HP Moonshot

Dr. Tom Bradicich, VP Server Engineering, HP Servers, describes how his engineering team, along with the brilliant team at Citrix, developed new extensions to our workspace delivery solutions using what he calls an “ultra” converged model of our HP Moonshot servers. Ultra-convergence takes converged to the next level --- by integrating compute, storage, and networking with accelerators such as graphics and GPUs. The results are insanely great. And we call it the Citrix WorkspacePod™ Powered by HP Moonshot.

Keeping it cool with HP Apollo

Congratulations to the HP Apollo 8000 System and NREL for winning an R&D100 Award. The R&D100 award recognizes HP Apollo’s “water-cooled perfection” from a uniquely engineered water cooling system from HP’s Cool Team.  Discover how the Cool Team brought together resources from across HP to collaboratively develop customer solutions like HP Apollo that uses warm-water cooling to eliminate the need for costly datacenter coolers and redistributes it for use in heating the building.

Redefining HPC and Supercomputing at HP-CAST23 and SC14

Guest blog written by Ed Turkel, Hewlett Packard Group Manager, HPC Business Development


Another HP-CAST and Supercomputing season is history, making news and setting records. The 23rd HP-CAST meeting, HP's HPC user group, was held in New Orleans on Friday and Saturday (Nov 14 and 15) before Supercomputing 2014 (SC14) with a record turnout. SC14 (sc14.supercomputing.org), the largest worldwide HPC conference and exhibition, took place at the New Orleans Convention Center from Sunday thru Friday (Nov 16 to 21).

The Future of Big Data Platforms: Bringing order to chaos and proving there is a better way.

Guest blog written by Greg Battas, Big Data Chief Technologist, CS Appliances Systems and Solution


You have built a rational systems architecture to support your enterprise. Years ago you quit building a server for each new application. Then in the corner of your data center appears a Hadoop cluster. Then another. Then an HBase cluster. Each brings with it a different compute to storage ratio, different memory configurations and different storage types. On each system’s internal, direct-attached storage sits three copies of Big Data, much of which is copied across multiple clusters. Does this sound familiar? Is this as good as it gets?

Cyfronet AGH to deploy leadership supercomputer with HP Apollo 8000 1.7 petaFLOPS system

While the HP Apollo 8000 system has been making waves this past week in New Orleans at SC14. It was in Poland that Apollo was making news the past month. Poland’s Cyfronet AGH announced its acquisition of a new HP Apollo System called Prometheus to create a leading supercomputing resource for Polish and international scientific collaborations. Prometheus will be the world’s largest installation of HP’s innovative water cooled HP Apollo 8000, but just what does that mean for Cyfronet AGH? What IT benefits will this enable and what does that mean for their end user?
