Apollo 6500 System Product Description

Do you need to rapidly transform massive data streams?

The HPE Apollo 6500 System provides the tools and the confidence to deliver high performance computing (HPC) innovation. The system consists of three key elements: the HPE ProLiant XL270d Gen9 Server tray, the HPE Apollo d6500 Chassis, and the HPE Apollo 6000 Power Shelf.

The XL270d Gen9 Server provides up to 56 Tflops of single precision performance per server with eight NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU and two Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processors in a 2U server. With a configurable internal PCIe Gen3 fabric, choose to optimize the GPU topology to match your specific needs. High-bandwidth, low-latency networking is tightly coupled to the accelerators allowing you to take full advantage of your network. Two x16 PCIe Gen3 slots for your choice of high speed fabrics.

The Apollo 6500 System: Your next accelerated computing solution.

What's New for Apollo 6500 System

  • Solve problems faster with up to 56 Tflops of single precision performance per 2U node.
  • Optimize accelerator configurations to match your workload.
  • Faster communications between nodes with two PCIe Gen3 x16 slots to enable your choice of high speed fabrics.

Flexible Configuration for the Most Demanding High-performance Computing Workloads

The HPE Apollo 6500 System supports up to eight 300W GPU or coprocessors delivering increased performance.

For workloads optimized for high peer to peer communication among the accelerators, place four (4) GPU on a single high speed PCIe switch, and two banks to a CPU for eight (8) GPU per CPU.

For workloads requiring higher CPU to GPU communications, choose our four (4) GPU per CPU configuration.

The HPE ProLiant XL270d Gen9 Server supports industry standard Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processors, solid state drives (SSD) with 12 G SAS and up to 1024 GB DDR4 2400 MHz memory for blazing performance.

HPE Server ROM
HPE ROM (Read Only Memory) is now digitally signed using the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Corporate Signing Service. This signature is verified before the flash process starts, reducing accidental programming and preventing malicious efforts to corrupt system ROM
HPE server Unified Extensible Firmware Interface(UEFI) or legacy mode
The HPE ProLiant System BIOS is an EDK2 UEFI solution, and adheres to the latest revisions of UEFI Class 2 specifications which supports both legacy boot and UEFI boot operation. The HPE ProLiant XL270d Gen9 defaults to UEFI boot operation and can be factory or field configured for Legacy boot operation

NOTE:
  • For optional array, the HPE Smart Array P542D- XL270d Gen9 Svr is the primary solution. A unique PCIe connection has been designed into the XL270d for this RAID controller. Use of any other RAID controllers will use one of the Low Profile PCIe slots that are typically used for fabric interconnects.
  • The embedded B140i will operate in UEFI mode only. For legacy support, AHCI mode is required.

This is the recommended RAID controller choice.

  • Two 2U slots for an accelerator tray

  • HPE Advanced power manager module

  • Four (4) dual rotor 80 x 80 x 86 mm fans per tray required

Server tray blank kit
A chassis requires that the two (2) server tray slots be populated with either an HPE ProLiant XL270d,server or an HPE Apollo 6500 Server node blank kit (850887-B21)
Rack airflow requirements
  • The increasing power of new high-performance processor technology requires increased cooling efficiency for rack-mounted servers

  • For maximum cooling, HPE Racks are recommended to allow these racks to befully loaded with servers using the latest processors
