Delivers Unprecedented Deep Edge Compute and High Capacity Storage, Based on Open Standards
Traditional data center or cloud solutions for IoT requires data to be transferred from the edge – exposing them to potential issues of latency, bandwidth, cost, security, duplication, corruption and compliance. The HPE Edgeline EL4000 Converged Edge System eliminates these risks.
The HPE Edgeline EL4000 can acquire data, analyze it on an industry-standard x86 deep compute platform, drive high-performance displays for operators, and initiate control actions in real time, at the edge, removing transfer issues to result in faster insights and business agility.
It also runs unmodified enterprise-class analytics software such as HPE Vertica, and each server is engineered to deliver high performance. It can ingest, repair and load millions of smart meter datasets per second. (the equivalent performance of a typical 2-processor rack server.)
The slim, 1U form factor can be configured with a combination of one to four HPE ProLiant m510 (Intel® Xeon® D, 8 or 16 core) or HPE ProLiant m710x (Intel® Xeon® E3 – 4 core with workstation-class GPU) compute nodes and now HPE ProLiant m750 (Intel Xeon E-2286M with 8 cores).
Solid State Drive (SSD) options in the M.2 form factor with different interface types (SATA or NVMe), can also be selected to help deliver the perfect balance between cost efficiency and extreme storage performance.
Delivers Unique Integration of Data Acquisition, Measurement & Control, Based on Open Standards
The I/O capabilities of HPE Edgeline EL4000 Converged Edge System is built on open industry standards such as PCI Express and PXIe. Select models also include a wide variety of option I/O cards to support 10GbE to 40GbE, InfiniBand, or Fibre Channel.
Precision data capture and control capabilities are achieved through open PXI standards. When coupled with automated machine learning, new horizons for equipment monitoring and management, predictive analytics and augmented reality for manual-less servicing are opened - key for Smart Factories.
The HPE Edgeline EL4000 also supports I/O expansion using up to four PCIe cards (one per compute node) or up to four PXIe modules (one to four assignable to any compute node). A choice of two switched 10 Gb (SFP+) or two pass-through 4x10 Gb (QSFP+) network uplink ports is also available.
Delivers Data Center Class Security, Device and Remote Systems Management
The HPE Edgeline EL4000 Converged Edge System brings industry-leading HPE Integrated Lights Out (iLO) management and security to the edge – the same HPE iLO found in HPE ProLiant Servers used in traditional data centers. A single HPE iLO RJ45 Ethernet port enables deployment, monitoring and support.
The HPE Edgeline EL4000 is also fully compatible with popular IoT security solutions for protection in high-risk edge environments. Aruba ClearPass enables custom profiles to be created to identify and secure IoT devices.
Through real-time interaction with third-party security solutions, ClearPass offers automated threat protection and recovery for devices that represent risk, with minimal hands-on IT interaction required.
Aruba Virtual Intranet Access (VIA) enables seamless virtual private network (VPN) tunnels for secure connectivity between edge locations and the corporate network.
HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems have a modular design that enables easy subsystem replacements and upgrades.
Engineered for Harsh Edge Environments
The HPE Edgeline EL4000 Converged Edge System is designed to reside where the data is created, often in environmentally harsh, space-constrained, and/or dusty environments.
This compact, ruggedized system is designed to withstand increased shock and vibration, and can tolerate high ambient operating temperatures up to 55°C (131°F) – well beyond what traditional servers can typically endure. Telco-specific options such as NEBS Level 3 certification, are also available.
When floor space options are limited, a wide range of wall-, rack-, or shelf-mounting options open up a multitude of placement possibilities. Finally, you can easily connect HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems to your electrical infrastructure by selecting AC or -48V DC hot-pluggable power supplies.
