Dell Technologies, a global tech company, has extended its high-performance computing (HPC) portfolio to provide effective technology and services that’ll help clients run demanding applications while also making HPC capabilities more accessible to companies.
The company unveiled these new technologies and services on November 14, helping make advanced computing technology more widely available. The new lineup includes the PowerEdge XE9680, based on Intel Xeon Scalable processors and NVIDIA GPUs.
Dell PowerEdge Servers To Advance Modeling And Datasets
The new Dell PowerEdge servers will allow businesses to employ AI for model training, HPC modelling and simulation, core-to-edge inferencing, and data visualization. Dell designed the servers in collaboration with Intel and NVIDIA and uses smart cooling technology.
Dell’s first high-performance 8x GPU server, the PowerEdge XE9680, uses eight NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs or NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs. This guarantees optimal performance in an air-cooled chassis. The server combines two future 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs and eight NVIDIA GPUs for superior performance with AI workloads.
The next-generation 2U 4x GPU, PowerEdge XE9640, server integrates Intel Xeon CPUs with Intel Data Center GPU Max Series. The servers use fully direct liquid cooling, which can lower energy costs by up to 3.1 times with increased rack density usage.
PowerEdge XE8640 – The Air-cooled 4U 4x GPU server (with four NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs and NVIDIA NVLink technology) and two forthcoming 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs will help businesses develop, train, and deploy machine learning models to improve analysis. The PowerEdge XE9680, XE8640, and XE9640 will be available globally in the first half of 2023.
Dell APEX High-Performance Computing Speeds Innovation
HPC is driving development across sectors, but cost, time, and expertise are still a challenge for many organizations.
Dell APEX High-Performance Computing allows users to perform large-scale, compute-intensive HPC applications as-a-Service in a fully managed, subscription-based environment.
The APEX HPC comes with an HPC cluster manager, a container orchestrator, a workload manager, and underlying HPC-optimized hardware configurations. Users can subscribe to a one, three, or five-year plan. Dell’s HPC is available in the US today.
Integrating Quantum Technologies Into Existing Infrastructure
The Dell Quantum Computing Solution allows customers to build algorithmic methods for complex use cases and accelerate chemistry and materials modeling, natural language processing, and machine learning.
The hybrid classical-quantum platform uses the Dell classic quantum simulator built on PowerEdge servers. Designed in collaboration with IonQ quantum technology, this approach integrates quantum computing into existing classical computer infrastructure.
Fully integrated Qiskit Dell Runtime and IonQ Aria software allows quantum workloads to be executed via the cloud. Dell Quantum Computing Solution is now available in the US and Canada.
Hybrid quantum computing combines the advantages of conventional and quantum computing. Using this technique, you can use hybrid quantum computing to tackle real-world challenges. It also provides more parallelism by allowing many qubits for a single calculation.
Dell Validated Design For HPC Risk Assessment
The software runs data-intensive simulations on HPC systems, including GPU-accelerated Dell PowerEdge servers, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and NVIDIA Bright Cluster Manager software, to assess risk and return quicker. It is now available globally. The validated design provides financial institutions with optimal system performance and efficiency, enabling users to assess and analyze risk accurately.
Dell HPC engineers and workload specialists create, validate, and adjust these setups for this specific use case. As a result, modular IT building blocks can be designed, configured, and ordered (in hours rather than weeks) with a single point of contact for services.
