Hewlett Packard Enterprise has launched a new server designed to carry out high-speed analytics on large volumes of data.
The HPE Superdome Flex can scale up to 48TB of memory, and is suited to carrying out rapid in-memory analytics. This shared pool of memory is connected by what HPE calls an "ultra-fast fabric".
The 5U rack server's modular design allows firms to expand the system from 4 to 32 CPU sockets, depending on their processing needs, with support for an up to a 3.6GHz, 8th-gen Intel Xeon processor. Each chassis also has 2 x 10 GbE ports and 2 x 1 GbE ports.
This modular design is designed to allow enterprises to tackle increasingly large datasets using high-speed, in-memory computing.
"Customers want to harness all of their data to derive actionable insights in real-time to make more impactful business decisions," said Randy Meyer, VP and general manager for synergy and mission critical servers at Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
"With HPE Superdome Flex, customers can capitalize on in-memory data analytics for their most critical workloads and scale seamlessly as data volumes grow."
HPE promises five nines of single-system availability and up to 41 percent lower TCO than other UNIX environments.
The firm is betting on fast-growing demand for in-memory computing, and earlier this year outlined a prototype system with 160TB of memory.
