Superdome Flex is born out of HPE’s efforts to combine the best of Superdome X and MC990 X to deliver a modular, standards-based mission-critical system with maximum flexibility, performance, and reliability.
While traditionally mission-critical systems have represented a smaller part of the server market, they are well poised to grow in new areas as next-generation data analytics and in-memory databases and the expansion into the HPC space increase the market demand for this type of platform. With Superdome Flex, HPE has reaffirmed its commitment to delivering a high-end x86-based system for mission-critical workloads that run on standard operating environments.
Superdome Flex differentiates itself from most of the competition by being a modular and flexible x86-based mission-critical platform. HPE must continue to convince prospective customers of the RAS features of Superdome Flex for hybrid IT deployments. HPE should now be the vendor that changes the dynamics of this market.
