Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s leadership position in the HPC market provides the unique set of capabilities needed to drive innovation in the future of computing. Leveraging the largest server revenue in the IT industry, HPE’s targeted R&D spending will then fuel invention to the benefit of exascale while also bringing it all to a point of affordability and availability for every enterprise—large or small.
To help address the many challenges on the path to exascale, Hewlett Packard Enterprise is also leading an industry-wide approach that will revolutionize system architecture. The development of a new and open protocol, temporarily dubbed the next-generation memory interface (NGMI), will increase flexibility when connecting memory devices, processors, accelerators, FPGAs, and switches. It allows the system architecture to better adapt to any given workload. Our advances in silicon photonics will drive increased input and output to the computing elements without exploding the energy budget. Then, emerging NVM technologies such as the memristor will provide the throughput to compete with DDR, but in a persistent and more energy-efficient way.
The HPE approach to exascale is geared to breaking the dependencies that come with outdated protocols. An open architecture will help us foster a vibrant innovation ecosystem and drive the industry to rethink how next-generation computing systems will now be built.
