Today HPE jumped on the 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable CPU bandwagon with its HPE Superdome Flex 280 Server. While its name sounds like it’s about to jump off of the top ropes and fight Hulk Hogan, Superdome Flex 280 is meant to be a building block for digital transformation and an extension of HPE’s as-a-service offerings. The company says the server is ideal for diverse, data-intensive, and converging workloads.

While it is aimed at small to medium environments, it has the ability to pack quite the hardware punch. This 5U block can hold up to four 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs (there are also 2-socket options). The new CPUs not only offer AI benefits, but it means the Superdome Flex 280 can benefit from more and faster DRAM, leverage Intel Optane PMem 200 series, the new Intel Stratix 10 NX FPGA, and the new Intel D7-P5500 & P5600 SSDs. Users can add up to 24TB of shared memory or more leveraging the new Optane PMem. It has up to 32 PCIe cards and can be equipped with up to 16 NVIDIA Tesla GPUs. And users can add up to 20 SAS/SATA/NVMe drives.HPE Superdome Flex 280 Server Summary
