The Machine was obsoleted by Intel's Purely Platform

The memory-centric design of The Machine was obsoleted by the memory-centric capabilities of Intel's upcoming Purely servers. The prospect of Purely's Apache Pass memory architecture with 3D XPoint DIMMs will provide extreme memory density (6TB/socket) without the need for fabric connected DRAM.

I do not know where or how HPE will apply concepts from The Machine, except perhaps in their Superdome X platform to address scaling Intel Xeon beyond 8 sockets.
