Apollo 70 System Product Description

The HPE Apollo 70 System is designed to bring real change and choice to the HPC market by delivering outstanding performance our first arm-based purpose built platform. Supporting the Marvell ThunderX2® Arm processor, the dual-socket server nodes deliver the high performance, high core count, and high memory bandwidth ideal for memory intensive HPC workloads. The HPE software innovation and Linux® operating system flexibility complement the hardware innovation to deliver increased application performance, system reliability, and management efficiency for the most demanding HPC environments including manufacturing, health and life sciences, oil and gas and geosciences.

Bringing Change and Choice to the High Performance Computing Community

The HPE Apollo 70 System features the high performance Marvell ThunderX2 Arm processor, enabling straightforward access to Arm architecture based high performance computing (HPC).

Using the high performance Marvell ThunderX2 processors with up to 32 cores and 8 DDR4 memory channels, the HPE Apollo 70 System supports higher core counts and 33% more memory bandwidth than typical industry standard dual socket server platforms.

Choice of two compute tray offerings enables flexibility in choice of either higher number of nodes per rack, or PCIe expansion capabilities, or a combination of both.

Designed from the Ground Up for HPC Cluster Deployments

The HPE Apollo 70 System is a dense “4 in 2U” chassis system architecture that supports up to 4 dual socket servers in a 2U chassis and enables up to 80 nodes, allowing over 5,000 Arm cores in a 42U rack.

The Marvell ThunderX2 processor system-on-a-chip delivers increased density and power efficiency which is key to building larger cluster installations. Each server node feature built in high speed (100 Gb/s) Mellanox® ConnectX®-5 InfiniBand or Ethernet connectivity for cluster communication.

Reduce the time and resources spent administering your system using HPE Performance Cluster Manager software which offers all functionalities you need to manage your cluster all day everyday including system setup, hardware and health management, image management, power management and more.

Quality and Support Expected from Hewlett Packard Enterprise Design and Manufacture

The HPE Apollo 70 System leverages the proven, high density, cost effective HPE Apollo 2000 System architecture which has been a leading HPC cluster building block for multiple generations.

Combined with the Hewlett Packard Enterprise HPC robust ecosystem of software developed by HPE, open source, and leading commercial software to deliver a choice of operating systems, development tools, workload management, and more for Arm-based solutions.

HPE Pointnext support provides a comprehensive portfolio including Advisory, Professional, and Operational Services. HPE Pointnext also offers a flexible infrastructure consumption model which can bring the economics and flexibility of cloud to your on premises data center.

Product features

Feature
Description
Chassis
The Apollo z70 chassis provides the following configuration:
  • HPE Apollo z70 Large Form Factor 8 (LFF) chassis - 8 LFF Hot-Pluggable SATA Hard Disk Drive (HDD)/Solid State Drive (SSD) (Direct attach)

Each HPE Apollo z70 chassis is built with the following:
  • Four 1U server slots

  • Up to two (2) 1600 W power supply for the chassis

  • HPE Thermal Logic technology for lower power consumption and airflow

  • Eight (8) single rotor fans standard

Server
The HPE AR44z and AR64z servers provides the following:
  • Dual-Port Small Form-factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+) 10 GbE mellanox CX4 LOM

  • Single-Port RJ-45 1 GbE Network Interface Controller (NIC) - Dedicated management NIC port

  • 1x Universal Serial Bus (USB), 1x Video Graphics Array (VGA), 1x Universal Asynchronous Receiver-Transmitter (UART)

System fans
The chassis ships standard with 8 single rotor fan modules
Server tray blank kit
A chassis requires that four (4) server tray slots be populated with either an HPE AR44z or HPE AR64z or server node blank kit to allow adequate air flow
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 be fully loaded with servers using the latest processors. Check the below link for user guide on HPE Apollo z70 Chassis:
CAUTION:
  • When a Third-Party rack is used, observe the following additional requirements to ensure adequate airflow and to prevent damage to the equipment
  • Always use blanking panels to fill all remaining empty front panel U-spaces in the rack. This arrangement ensures proper airflow. Using a rack without blanking panels will result in improper cooling that can lead to thermal damage
Bringing change and choice to the HPC community
  • The HPE Apollo 70 System features the high performance Cavium ThunderX2 Arm processor, enabling straightforward access to Arm architecture based HPC
