HPE's Spaceborne Computer is awarded the title 'Most Extreme Data Center on the Planet' by public vote.

Once the thrill of orbiting our planet at some 400km wears off, astronauts on the International Space Station have HPE’s Spaceborne Computer to run their experiments on.

Spaceborne Computer intends to run a year-long experiment of high performance commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) computer system on the International Space Station (ISS). During high radiation events, verify if the systems can still operate correctly by lowering their power, and therefore, speed. This research helps scientists identify ways of using software to protect ISS computers without expensive, time-consuming or bulky protective shielding.
