Dell Technologies has launched 13 next-generation PowerEdge systems that can leverate NVIDIA’s full AI stack — including GPUs, DPUs and the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software suite — to enable enterprises to transform their businesses with AI.
The new range can form the foundation to drive AI applications such as speech recognition, cybersecurity, recommendation systems, and a growing number of groundbreaking language-based services.
“As the amount of data in the world expands, the majority of information technology capacity is going to be in service of machine intelligence. Building systems for AI first is a huge opportunity for Dell and NVIDIA to collaborate,” said Michael Dell (top left), Founder and CEO of Dell.
“AI has the power to transform every business by accelerating automation across every industry. Working closely with Dell Technologies, we’re able to reach organisations around the globe with a powerful, energy-efficient AI computing platform that will boost the IQ of modern enterprise,” said Jensen Huang (top right), Founder and CEO of NVIDIA.
A key highlight among Dell’s portfolio is Dell PowerEdge systems featuring NVIDIA BlueField-2 DPUs, which can offload, accelerate and isolate the networking and operating system stacks of the data centre. This translates to energy reduction by up to 25 percent, potentially saving businesses millions in energy bills.
Dell PowerEdge servers with NVIDIA BlueField DPUs optimise performance and efficiency for private, hybrid and multi-cloud deployments, including those running VMware vSphere.
Systems featuring NVIDIA H100 GPUs can process data 25x more efficiently to deploy diverse AI models into production, and that NVIDIA-accelerated Dell PowerEdge servers are up to 300x more energy efficient for running inference on large language models — those exceeding 500 billion parameters — when compared to prior-generation non-accelerated servers.
