HPE has announced that phoenixNAP, a global IT services provider, is expanding its Bare Metal Cloud platform with cloud-native HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 servers, using energy-efficient processors from Ampere Computing.

The expanded services support AI inferencing, cloud gaming and other cloud-native workloads with improved performance and energy efficiency.

The HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 enables phoenixNAP to provide next-generation compute performance with energy consumption savings. The HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 server is designed for service providers and digital-first enterprises running cloud-native workloads. phoenixNAP will utilize HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 servers across its network of 18 data centers on five continents.

The global IT services provider’s Bare Metal Cloud allows customers to automatically manage HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 servers with powerful 80-core Ampere Altra CPUs running at 3.0 GHz per core. This solution helps customers maximize compute density and reduce total cost of ownership through simplified management and lower energy consumption.

Additionally, phoenixNAP is a member of HPE’s Partner Ready Vantage program, which assists IT service providers with the tools, training and assets needed for successfully delivering value to their customers.

Neil MacDonald, executive vice president and general manager, HPE Compute, said: “As demand for AI, cloud and data-intensive workloads continues to grow, compute technology must transform from a price per performance focus to deliver innovation that provides both performance and energy efficiency.

“phoenixNAP’s leadership in cutting-edge offerings that meet the unprecedented demands of emerging data and compute-intensive markets offers customers tremendous performance per rack, per dollar and per watt.”

Jeff Wittich, chief product officer at Ampere, said: “The biggest challenge to cloud growth is energy capacity and consumption and it’s only getting worse with more compute-intensive AI workloads. With technology partners like HPE, we can put the power and performance benefits of Ampere-based servers into the hands of even more customers.

“We’re excited to provide companies like phoenixNAP with more energy-efficient, high-performance computing for their cloud business customers.”
