    Top Benefits of HPE Superdome Flex for Healthcare

    Validated for Epic

    HPE has validated its infrastructure to run the Caché database supporting Epic’s preferred Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) scale-up application architecture and to meet Epic’s Honor Role requirements on Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® (RHEL) and VMware.

    Grow at your Own Pace

    The unique modular design of the HPE Superdome Flex provides a scalable solution for healthcare organizations that allows growth as you need, without overprovisioning, over-paying, and disruptive upgrades.

    Fast Insights

    When data is moved between servers, there is latency due to the time it takes to reassemble complex data sets. With HPE’s Superdome Flex scale-up architecture, a large shared-memory capacity improves timely insights as it removes the need to divide data sets and re-assemble after analysis.

    Licensing Cost Considerations

    The HPE Superdome Flex allows Epic customers to stay with the SMP architecture. This means that they don’t need to move to an Enterprise Cache Protocol (ECP) (scale-out), which would dramatically increase the licensing costs and complexity of the solution.


    The HPE Superdome Flex was designed with inherent security features such as an “air-gapped” manageability subsystem that doesn’t allow suspect firmware updates from the operating system, and Silicon Root of Trust protection to enable the discovery of compromised firmware and prevent its execution.

    HPE’s Silicon Root of Trust is a designated “Cyber Catalyst,” products and solutions deemed effective by major insurers for reducing cyber risk. Organizations that adopt Cyber Catalyst-designated solutions may be considered for enhanced terms and conditions on cyber insurance policies. 

    Up-time for Mission-Critical Workloads with RAS Features

    Superdome Flex was built for mission-critical availability and was designed to support even the most taxing mission-critical solutions ranging from EHRs to SAP HANA®. One important feature is the power of analysis that comes with Superdome Flex, enabling self-repair without operator assistance. Finally, these breakthrough servers contain redundant components within the server to ensure reliable uptime.

    Managed Support & Migrations

    With the HPE Superdome Flex solution, both HPE and Comport have white-glove implementation services for fast installation. Migration assistance is also available. In addition, there are up to 24/7 support contracts to resolve any issues.

    Support for Persistent Memory

    Purpose-built to support Persistent memory, organizations can choose to run their system with all DRAM or a combination of DRAM and persistent memory. This is particularly useful in the case of SAP HANA test and development systems where restarts are common and waiting for lost data to re-load can take hours.

    Simplified Management

    With a simplified management experience, tools such as HPE OneView, Insight Remote Support, and Proactive Care, as well as supporting open-source Redfish API and OpenStack, the HPE Superdome Flex enhances both IT and end-user experiences.

    Consumption Models

    Enjoy the Superdome Flex either on-premises or as-a-service. As a service options via HPE GreenLake and Comport Secure provide customized solutions aligned to your specific critical data needs.
