ScaleMatrix-HPE Plan Hybrid HPC Center of Excellence in San Diego, California

11/14/2018
ScaleMatrix, a provider of variable density colocation services, will join HPE to open a Center of Excellence for hybrid HPC within ScaleMatrix' data center headquarters in San Diego, California.

According to company officials, HPE Center of Excellence for hybrid HPC will offer a highly-tuned, purpose-built HPC infrastructure, enabled by a vast range of data center capabilities of the ScaleMatrix DDC platform. The COE will serve as a test environment and sandbox for enterprise and HPC clients that want to gain an enhanced understanding of the platform's capabilities, while also having access to hands-on resources as part of the program offering.

The environment consists of an extensive deployment of various Apollo hardware configurations, demonstrating flexibility and consisting of thousands of cores, and a rack level thermal density north of 50kW, officials explained.

Bill Mannel, Vice President & General Manager, HPC and AI, HPE, "We are innovating ways to address thermal density and power efficiency in the HPC data center to improve TCO and overall performance for our customers. We look forward to collaborating with ScaleMatrix to launch HPE's first Center of Excellence for hybrid HPC in the U.S., integrating the HPE Apollo product family with ScaleMatrix' platform, for comprehensive end-to-end HPC solutions from hardware to data center cost structures."

Chris Orlando, CEO of ScaleMatrix, said, "For nearly a decade, ScaleMatrix has focused on delivering the most flexible, future-proof, and capable data center platforms in the world. The launch of the Center of Excellence for hybrid HPC with HPE, underscores those efforts, and allows us to further demonstrate the impact that precisely managed, ultra-dense deployments can have on enterprise and HPC clients. DDC is the ideal platform for high-performance environments, and our ability to deliver these unique capabilities in one of our U.S. hosting sites, or on-premise at a client owned data center site, means that these advantages are available to anyone, in any geography. We greatly value our collaboration with HPE, and we look forward to jointly providing this exciting COE resource, and to helping end-users achieve more with every IT dollar they invest."
