HPE Superdome Flex

HPE Superdome Flex and Scale-up Servers

Modular, reliable, and secure compute platforms that power critical applications, accelerate analytics, and tackle HPC and AI workloads holistically.

HPE Scale-up servers: empower data-first modernization for mission-critical workloads

Handle SAP HANA, Oracle, SQL Server, and Epic user demand while delivering real-time analytics. Comb through massive IoT and AI datasets at the edge or in the core and tackle complex problems holistically as a standalone HPC workhorse or within petascale clusters. HPE Scale-up servers and HPE Superdome Flex family will help you extract value from all your data and grow cost-efficiently with its modular, building-block architecture.

Grow your system cost efficiently

Start small and grow seamlessly as the demands of your business evolve by using a modular design. Superdome Flex starts at 4 and scales up to 32 sockets in 4-socket increments. Superdome Flex 280 starts at 2 and scales up to 8 sockets in 2-socket increments.

Guard against downtime with extreme RAS

Discover innovative reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features in HPE Superdome Flex that simply don’t exist in other x86 server platforms.

Protect against firmware attacks and malware

Minimize threat exposure to vulnerabilities, including those found in common firmware. Silicon root of trust protection has been added to HPE Superdome Flex 280.

Address data silos with efficient consolidation

Whether you use virtualization or deploy on bare-metal servers, Superdome Flex servers are ideal for consolidating performance-intensive database applications.

Key Features

Keep Pace with the Evolving Demands on Your Critical Data Environments

HPE Superdome Flex Server utilizes a unique modular architecture that scales flexibly and seamlessly from 4- to 32-sockets in a single-system. Grow at your own pace, in 4-socket increments, avoiding the need to over-provision. With up to 32 sockets/896 cores, you have plenty of headroom to scale.

Leverage a cost-efficient entry point for mission-critical workloads at 4 sockets, and the ability to scale up to 32 sockets with choice of either economical Gold or high-end Platinum Intel Xeon Scalable processors.

Meet your in-memory computing demands with a platform that delivers from 768 GB up to 48 TB of shared memory. Choose DRAM only, or a combination of DRAM and Intel® Optane Persistent Memory 100 series for HPE, to meet your workload requirements.

Benefit from unbounded I/O with support for up to 128 PCIe standup cards.

Simplify your hybrid cloud environment with choice of management including open Redfish software ecosystem, OpenStack®, and HPE OneView monitoring.

Process and Analyze Your Ever-Growing Data at Extreme Speed

HPE Superdome Flex Server provides the compute power needed for the most demanding workloads by delivering groundbreaking performance at any scale.1

Achieve the performance levels required by critical applications with ultra-low latency and high bandwidth technology.

Leverage innovative in-memory design and unmatched shared memory capacity of up to 48 TB in a single system.

Designed for the future based on Memory-Driven Computing design principles to boost analytics performance.

Safeguard your Mission-critical Workloads

The HPE Superdome Flex Server delivers the highest service levels on industry standards with extreme and proven RAS capabilities not available on other x86 platforms.2

Contain errors at the firmware level, including memory errors, before any interruption can occur at the operating system layer with the Hewlett Packard Enterprise firmware-first approach.

Reduce human error with the proven fault-handling analysis engine, which predicts hardware faults and initiates self-repair without operator assistance.

Isolate workloads and/or consolidate multiple workloads onto a single managed complex with the unique x86 hard partitioning (HPE nPars). Service individual partitions and/or reconfigure while other partitions continue to run undisturbed.

Deliver business continuity for Linux® workloads with HPE Serviceguard for Linux (SGLX) high availability and disaster recovery clustering solution. It protects from a multitude of infrastructure and application faults across physical or virtual environments over any distance.
