Accelerating a Cure for Alzheimer's with Memory-Driven Computing
DZNE and HPE are working together to accelerate research around Alzheimer's Disease. HPE has helped reduce the time to analyze large sets of data from hours to seconds through memory-driven computing. This translates to scientists being able to do more data analysis more quickly and also provides the opportunity to ask more questions of the data they examine. Memory-Driven computing is also leading to lower power consumption when doing data analysis, which translates to lower cost. In this interview from HPE Discover in Madrid, Hartmut Schultze of HPE talks about the impact ubiquitous memory is having on Alzheimer's research and how it may lead to a cure for one of society's biggest challenges.

Walkthrough of HP PODs for Europe
The HP Hyperscale Computing team has been building performance optimized data centers (PODs) for several years now. These self-contained units offer all the infrastructure of a traditional data center, built inside a self-contained enclosure that looks a bit like a shipping container. PODs are built to be energy efficient and are typically easier to deploy than the traditional build out required to outfit an office building to support the power, cooling, and other requirements of a modern data center. The European market has a number of requirements that are different from other parts of the world. As a result, HP built a custom POD solution specific to the needs of European countries.

Creating Smart Cities With IoT Sensors and Edge Computing
Working with Schréder, SixSq is making the street lighting in cities around Europe smarter through a combination of IoT sensors and HPE Edgeline servers. There's a current requirement in the European Union to better manage streets based on traffic. One way Schréder is doing this, with the help of SixSq, is to analyze traffic patterns via sensors and adjust lighting on the fly by processing that data with edge compute near where the decision needs to be made. This technology could be extended to monitoring air quality or traffic accidents in the future, to further extend the intelligence at the edge. In this video from HPE Discover in Madrid, Marc-Elian Bégin of SixSq explains how this solution was implemented in places like Zurich, as well as the potential for future enhancements.
