HP solidified its position on the TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers with the HP BladeSystem c-Class and HP ProLiant blade servers dominating competitive installations for the third consecutive year, which includes New Zealand customer WETA Digital.
HP remains the leader with a total of 208 (42 percent) of the top 500 systems built on HP ProLiant architectures. Of those, HP BladeSystem c-Class servers power 203 entries, 40.6 percent of the total units.
Blade servers enable customers to increase computing performance within existing physical data center space. HP industry-standard blade servers lead the supercomputing market by easing the management of these large and complex systems while managing system energy efficiencies.
On the other hand,HP today announced the University of Minnesota Supercomputing Institute for Advanced Computational Research (MSI) has chosen HP blade servers for a new high-performance computing system to power research across a broad range of disciplines, including life and physical sciences and engineering.
