Meet The Newest 4 HP SL6500 HPC Servers

HP today introduced 4 new purpose-built HPC servers for the HP ProLiant SL6500 Scalable System.

The new HP ProLiant SL390 G7 4U expands HP’s leading support for Nvidia M2050 and M2070 GPUs, supporting up to 8 GPUs in a 4u half-width server module. With two of these new servers in a 4RU SL6500 chassis, the new SL390 is one of the densest servers on the market with integrated Nvidia GPUs, supporting two servers and a total of 16 GPUs in only 4U of rack space.

The new HP ProLiant SL165s G7 is purpose built for data intensive HPC, with two AMD Magny-Cours 6100 series CPUs (up to 24 CPU cores), 24 DIMM slots, and up to 6 LFF disk drives. Using today’s 2TB drives, a rack of 40 SL165s servers packs a whopping 480 TB of disk storage and is ideal for a growing set of data intensive HPC applications. Additional details on the SL165s are shown in the picture at the bottom of this page.

The new HP ProLiant SL160s G6 is purpose built for data intensive HPC using the latest Intel Westmere (5600 series) CPUs, and like the SL165s, supports up to 6 LFF disk drives.

Rounding out the new SL servers is the HP ProLiant SL335s G7, a half-width two socket server using the AMD 4000 series CPUs designed to deliver the maximum performance/watt/dollar. Packing up to 8 independent servers in 4U of rack space, the SL335s is ideal for small and mid size HPC clusters using 1G networking.

HP’s HPC team is already busy working with customers designing powerful yet power efficient supercomputer solutions using the new SL family.
