HPE Secures $57M in Contracts to Provide Air Force, Navy Supercomputers

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has won two contracts worth a combined $57 million to provide supercomputers to the U.S. Navy and Air Force Research Laboratory as part of the Defense Department‘s High Performance Computing Modernization Program.

HPE said Tuesday it will deliver four HPE SGI 8600 computer systems to AFRL’s DoD Supercomputing Resource Center and another three to the Navy’s DSRC.

The company will also perform on-site system administration and applications support services under the contracts.

AFRL will adopt HPE-built computers in efforts to create hypersonics and computational models of air, naval and ground weapon technologies.

The Navy will use the systems to address the service branch’s global weather modeling requirements.

SGI 8600 is designed with Intel‘s Xeon 24-core processors and DDN EXAScaler appliance designed to store more than 12 petabytes of data.
