HPE opening factory in the Czech Republic


Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) will be building its first European factory for high performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) systems, says the company.

The dedicated HPC factory, which will become the fourth of HPE’s global HPC sites, will be located in Kutná Hora, Czech Republic, next to the company’s existing European site. The site is expected to manufacture and ship two main product lines, the Apollo systems and the Cray EX supercomputers.

Foxconn will support the site’s product manufacturing and shipping to fulfill HPE’s customers’ orders in Europe, as it currently does for HPE’s main site in Kutná Hora, Czech Republic.

Operations are expected to begin in summer 2022, says HPE.
