HPE Launches New Cloud-Native Server

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced the launch of a new line of cloud-native compute solutions, the HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 server.

The new HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 server is built using processors from Ampere and designed to provide a single socket that delivers up to 128 cores per socket for scale-out compute. According to HPE, these new servers are ideally suited for customers that offer digital services, media streaming, social platforms, e-commerce, financial, or online services, and cloud-based services such as IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.

“Service providers and digital-first enterprises are at the forefront of the next major compute infrastructure build-out. These organizations understand that agility, flexibility, and innovation start with compute,” said Neil MacDonald, executive vice president and general manager, Compute, HPE.

“They also realize that traditional ODM boxes simply won’t cut it in a market that demands depth of IP, performance, reliability, security, and control. This is where HPE steps in and why we chose Ampere.”

With the launch of the new HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 server, HPE claims to be the first tier-one server provider to offer compute with optimized cloud-native silicon for service providers and enterprises embracing cloud-native development. Also, the new cloud-native server is the first in a series of HPE ProLiant RL Gen11 servers that are expected to deliver next-generation compute performance with higher power efficiency using Ampere® Altra® and Ampere Altra® Max cloud-native processors.

“Ampere is excited to be the first cloud native and newest member of the HPE ProLiant family. The cloud is the growth engine of our industry but demands a modern processor that is both high performance and very power efficient to meet the global ESG demands. HPE is taking a leadership position in delivering cloud native Ampere Altra and Altra Max based ProLiant systems to Enterprise customers and Service Providers deploying cloud technologies,” said Renee J. James, Founder and CEO, Ampere.

As announced, the HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 server will be available worldwide for purchase or as-a-service through HPE GreenLake in Q3 2022.

Few days earlier, Digital Realty announced the launch of Data Hub, a new colocation offering on PlatformDIGITAL® which features HPE GreenLake, HPE’s edge-to-cloud software platform that delivers infrastructure as-a-service.
