HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced it has been honored as Artificial Intelligence (AI) Solution Partner of The Year by Red Hat, Inc., for AI solutions developed for the public sector. The award is part of the annual Red Hat North America Partner Awards, which recognize partners for their commitment to open innovation and collaboration with Red Hat.
The award recognizes HPE for co-developing a highly differentiated “AI at the Edge” solution based on the HPE Edgeline Converged Edge EL8000 system, a turnkey, ruggedized, open edge computing solution that unlocks value from AI and analytics, processed at the edge, in just minutes. The size, weight and power (SWaP) optimized solution features GPU acceleration in a multi-node deployable cluster that brings Kubernetes and containers to the edge where most of the data is processed. The system integrates with Open Data Hub, an open source project sponsored by Red Hat that provides AI tools data scientists require for model development, to help ensure support for the development, training, and inference workloads.
“The HPE Edgeline Converged Edge systems enable various AI experiences at the edge for a number of industries, including the public sector, to efficiently process data and unlock insights in real-time,” said Jeff Winterich, Distinguished Technologist for Federal Accounts at HPE. “By combining our high-performing systems that are purposely-engineered to harness volumes of data at the edge with Red Hat technology, we are bringing together solutions to make AI and data science at the edge a reality.
