Dell Technologies Providing an On-Premise Answer for the Demands of AI and ML

Dell Technologies Makes Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Real

Applying AI and ML technology to turn data into intelligent insights, drive a faster time to market and achieve better business outcomes

Note from Big Community Editor:  With this announcement, Dell are making a play against public cloud. The rule of thumb today has become that for AI and Machine Learning driven applications, the sheer volume of compute and data requires the scalability and flexibility of a public cloud based approach to meeting processing needs. Dell Technologies are showing how the power and capacity to support AI and Machine Learning projects can be handled by this new 14th generation of PowerEdge servers.

 

 

Dell’s aim is to drive faster business outcomes by accelerating time to insight, they contend that the new PowerEdge range will help companies achieve just that. Ultimately companies building AI and Machine Learning based models should have choice, and having an on-premise option with all the control and security that encompasses must be a welcome to any data professional.

Delivering performance for ML workloads in the data center

PowerEdge R940xa and PowerEdge R840, part of the 14th generation Dell EMC PowerEdge server portfolio.

With exceptional performance density of Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors (up to 112 processing cores) and massive memory (up to 6TB of memory and NVDIMM options), these new servers deliver powerful performance and allow customers to:

 

  • Rapidly transform data insights into business outcomes with the Dell EMC PowerEdge R940xa, which is designed to accelerate databases for business- critical applications without cloud fees and security risks. It improves application performance by combining up to four CPUs with four graphics processing units (GPUs) in a powerful 1:1 ratio, and it enables low-latency with direct-attached non-volatile memory express (NVMe) drives.
  • Drive faster insights to better engage with customers and accelerate innovation with the Dell EMC PowerEdge R840 server, which is designed for in- database analytics. The R840 server minimizes latency with more direct- attached NVMe drives than other market available options2 and speeds data transfers with a fully integrated ultra-path interconnect (UPI). 
Unlike competitors’ four-socket offerings, these servers also support field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs)3, which excel on data-intensive computations. Both servers feature OpenManage Enterprise to monitor and manage the IT infrastructure, as well as agent- free Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) for automated, efficient management to improve productivity.
  • The Dell EMC PowerEdge R940xa and R840 will be available globally May 22
