Dell Technologies, on Wednesday, announced their next-generation Dell EMC PowerEdge portfolio that includes 17 new servers the company claims can deliver the highest performance to date, and are up to 60% more energy efficient when compared to their previous generation.
As such, they are charting the path towards autonomous infrastructure to offer greater IT efficiency and embrace AI and address the demands of IT at the Edge.
The server portfolio provides the power which is required to gain and act on real-time insights from data wherever it may be, from the core data centers, to even the public clouds and edge locations.
When it comes to the servers themselves, they are AI-optimized and ready to tackle the most data-intensive workloads. PowerEdge servers feature PCIe Gen 4.0, which doubles the performance over the previous generations.
They also have six accelerators per server that support the most data-intensive workloads. When coupled with PowerEdge’s autonomous intelligence, the technologies make it the most AI-enabled portfolio to date, enabling organizations to anticipate and quickly respond to their needs.
Here’s what’s included:
PowerEdge XE8545 – this is a powerhouse for AI workloads. It even runs the latest HPC Ready Solution for AI and Data Analytics, which makes it easier to run analytics and advanced computing workloads in a single system. This is due to the fact that it can combine up to 128 cores of 3rd Generation AMD EPYC processors, as well as four NVIDIA A100 GPUs, and is optimized to perform with NVIDIA’s vGPU software in a dual-socket 4U rack server.
PowerEdge R750xa – this is a server built to accelerate the performance and even delivers GPU-dense performance in machine learning training, interfacing, and AI through the support of NVIDIA AI Enterprise software, which is a suite exclusively available for VMware vSphere 7 Update 2.
It’s essentially a dual-socket, 2U server that is powered through the 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and can support up to four double-wide GPUs as well as six single-wide GPUs.
