Apollo vs Rack Server Positioning and Differentiation

Hello There,

 

Hope everyone is well & keeping safe !

 

I would request your inputs in one of the cases where we have positioned Apollo r2800 with XL170 as option-1 & DL380 as option two. Since this is purely an HPC Cluster environment, what are the key differentiators and the talking points that one should highlight to the customer and establish the right value proposition of Apollo solution stack vs rack server. A comparison or a thorough analysis will be really appreciated.

 

Much Regards-K.S.

The major difference is the Apollo 2000 Gen10 System is a density-optimized, 2U shared infrastructure chassis for up to 4 ProLiant XL170r Gen10 which means 4 server in 2U chassis.

Whereas in DL380 Gen10 server 2U space consumed in a rack for one server only.

Re: Apollo vs Rack Server Positioning and Differentiation

Thanks AmRa, great insights.

Also do we have performance or cost comparison between the two ? If so would be great if you can share the same.
