Hewlett Packard Enterprise Unveil The Machine

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has lifted the veil on a prototype of its largest R&D exercise, known as The Machine research project. It entails a technology concept known as memory-driven computing, enabling it to be used for big data operations.

The prototype unveiled today contains 160 terabytes (TB) of memory, capable of simultaneously working with the data held in every book in the Library of Congress five times over – or approximately 160 million books. It has never been possible to hold and manipulate whole data sets of this size in a single-memory system, and this is just a glimpse of the immense potential of Memory-Driven Computing.

Here’s a quick look at the process that leads to The Machine.

Here’s an infographic to show how The Machine can be applied.
