It’s been over 50 years since the Apollo 11 mission to the moon and its famous “great leap for mankind,” but today there is an opportunity to leap forward with a different Apollo. Data centers with the Apollo 6000 converged, liquid-cooled supercomputers can now move to Park Place Technologies’ alternative HPE support.

A New Support Opportunity

We’re proud to announce that Park Place is bringing our high-quality support contracts to the Apollo 6000. This means you no longer need HPE to maintain and repair these high-density systems and can get more support value for the dollar.

To IT organizations that haven’t yet tried alternative maintenance for converged products, this may feel like a leap of faith. But Park Place has deep knowledge of HPE systems and a proven model for server, storage, and networking support.

With Park Place, HPE Apollo customers get to:

  • Save money compared with an HPE support contract on Apollo converged systems
  • Experience greater uptime with Park Place’s unparalleled time-to-resolution and first-time fix rates
  • Leverage this support option no matter where in the world the hardware is located
  • Never worry about end-of-support-life because we support hardware long after HPE calls it quits
