HPE GreenLake accelerates discovery of new energy sources with Eni’s new supercomputer


Hewlett Packard Enterprise brings good news for Eni by upgrading its existing supercomputer system, HPC4, which doubles storage capacity, increases sustainability to accelerate discovery of new energy sources with advanced modeling and simulation capabilities, while reducing operational costs and energy consumption. As the supercomputer is delivered as a service through the HPE GreenLake platform, it combines simplicity and agility with the governance, visibility and compliance of an on-premises environment.

According to Stefano Venturi, president and managing director at Hewlett Packard Enterprise Italy, “HPC plays an increasingly important role in fueling innovation, which has a tremendous impact on economic growth for Italy. The ability to process and extract value from data helps organizations identify new opportunities to stay competitive".

Unlike Eni’s previous system, the latest supercomputer will double its storage capacity, with 10 petabytes of storage, to support the scaling and image-intensity of its analysis, which are key to developing new energy sources. The new infrastructure will improve energy usage and reduce electronic waste by using HPE Asset Upcycling Services.

Eni’s new HPC4 is built with 1,500 nodes HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 Plus servers, which provide dense, flexible platforms with the industry’s most trusted built-in security. “We are honored to have been selected by Eni to deploy powerful supercomputing technologies that will drive innovation for the energy industry as well as digital transformation for our nation", Venturi further added.
