Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) anunció en el día de hoy que construirá la primera fábrica en Europa enfocada a la fabrication de equipos de Computación de Alto Rendimiento (HPC) e Inteligencia Artificial (IA) para acelerar la entrega a los clients y fortalecer el ecosystem de proveedores de the region.
The new site will manufacture HPE’s industry-leading systems as purpose-built solutions to advance scientific research, mature AL/ML initiatives, and enhance innovation. The dedicated HPC factory, which will become the fourth of HPE’s global HPC sites, will be located in the city of Kutná Hora, Czech republicnext to HPE’s existing European site for manufacturing its industry-standard servers and storage solutions. Operations will begin in summer 2022 and no details on the cost of the operation have been announced.
“When European organizations embrace next-generation supercomputing, they gain a strong foundation to harness opportunities for exponential data growth to accelerate scientific discovery, strengthen digital sovereignty and unlock innovations to deliver greater value. economic,” Justin said. Hotard, executive vice president and general manager of HPC and AI at Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
“HPE is committed to continuing to support Europe in this effort and our new HPC plant in Kutná Hora, Czech Republic is another important investment, among our other R&D initiatives, that we have made in Europe. We are now able to manufacture supercomputing, HPC and AI systems, while increasing the viability and resilience of the supply chain.

European customers benefit from a local location for HPC and AI solutions that support any data request
The new center will manufacture and distribute two main product lines, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Apollo systems, ideal for demanding HPC and AI applications, as well as AI modeling and training, and HPE Cray EX supercomputers, designed to support supports next-generation high-end supercomputers. to deliver unprecedented performance to tackle the world’s challenging scientific and AI tasks.
Each of the two product lines offers comprehensive HPC and AI capabilities covering compute, accelerated computing, software, networking, storage and liquid cooling capabilities.
The plant is also designed to meet the specific manufacturing requirements of HPE liquid-cooled HPE and AI systems, which are ideal cooling options for high-performance systems. To support this capacity, the factory has a reinforced floor to support the weight of HPE Cray EX supercomputers, weighing up to 3,628 kilograms (8,000 pounds) per cabinet, and includes a water loop between the supercomputers and the roof of the building. help cool hot water.
HPE continues trusted partnership with Foxconn to support new factory operations
Foxconn, company of HPE manufacturing services from time to time, will be responsible for the manufacturing and the shipment of products from the site to collect with the customers of HPE in Europe, as currently for the main site of HPE in Kutná Hora, Czech republic.
