“There’s a lot of value in the data that organizations collect, and HPC and AI are helping organizations get the most out of this data,” said Thierry Pellegrino, vice president of HPC at Dell Technologies. “We’re committed to building solutions that simplify the use and deployment of these technologies for organizations of all sizes and at all stages of deployment.”
Dell advances storage solutions for HPC
Dell is expanding its portfolio of Dell EMC Ready Solutions for HPC Storage with new, turnkey solutions for ThinkParQ’s BeeGFS and ArcaStream’s PixStor file systems.
Offering a combination of technology partners’ software with Dell EMC hardware, networking and support, based on engineered and tested designs, Dell EMC Ready Solutions for HPC Storage simplify and speed deployment and solutions management.
Dell EMC Ready Solutions for HPC BeeGFS Storage, with ThinkParQ’s software-defined parallel file system, speeds-up input/output (I/O)-intensive workloads with the ability to scale from small clusters to enterprise-class systems on premises or in the cloud.
Additionally, Dell EMC Ready Solutions for HPC PixStor Storage offers a high‑performance parallel file system, enabling data management at scale with the ability to perform archive and analytics in place.
The solution also includes a validated, scalable design with object, tape and cloud tiering capabilities using PixStor Ngenea along with PowerEdge servers, PowerSwitch and Mellano networking, PowerVault storage, supported by Dell Technologies deployment and support services.
With these ready solutions, customers have seen improvements in both performance and scale.
Dell simplifies path to AI with EMC Ready Solutions
Dell EMC is expanding its Ready Solutions for AI portfolio with an all-new validated design for the Domino Data Science Platform. Developed in collaboration with Domino Data Lab, the Dell EMC validated design enables data scientists to develop and deliver models faster while providing IT with a centralized, extensible platform spanning the entire data science lifecycle –accelerating ideation and deployment.
To further simplify AI deployments, Dell Technologies also is introducing five new reference architectures for optimizing Dell EMC technologies with leading AI partners, such as those from DataRobot, Grid Dynamics, H20.ai, Iguazio and Kubeflow on Red Hat OpenShift.
These architectures are optimized for Intel Xeon Scalable processors and enable organizations to speed up the deployment of AI solutions for training and inference to modernize, automate and transform their data centers using Dell EMC converged infrastructure, servers, storage and data protection technologies.
