Dell EMC Tweaks Cloud, Software and Systems to Foster its High Performance Computing Portfolio
Dell EMC has lately announced new high performance computing (HPC) cloud offerings, software, systems in an attempt to further democratize HPC for enterprises of all sizes, optimizing HPC technology innovations and advancing the HPC community.
The new move couples Intel to power advanced HPC for life sciences and democratize HPC capabilities for mainstream enterprises on-premise and in the cloud.
The new solutions are backed by NVIDIA Tesla GPUs and Pascal architecture to evolve capabilities in deep learning, data analytics and HPC.
The company beguiles to bring HPC capabilities to mainstream enterprises with latest announcement which includes:
- The Dell EMC HPC System for Life Sciences will be available with the PowerEdge C6320p Server with the Intel Xeon Phi processor by early Q1 2017. This accelerates results for bioinformatics centers to identify treatments in clinically relevant timeframes while protecting confidential data.
- New cloud bursting services from Cycle Computing, enabling cloud orchestration and management, connecting to the three largest public cloud services including Azure, AWS and Google. This allows customers of all sizes to most efficiently utilize their on-premises systems while seamlessly providing access to the vast resources of the public cloud for HPC needs.
- Dell EMC will offer customers the Intel HPC Orchestrator this quarter to help simplify the installation, management and ongoing maintenance of high-performance computing systems. Intel® HPC Orchestrator, based on the OpenHPC open source project, can help accelerate customers’ time to results and value in their HPC deployments.
Offering a robust portfolio optimized for HPC, available all in one place including server, enterprise storage and converged systems. The new innovative HPC technology is also been demonstrated at SC16 this week, key nuggets include:
- Dell EMC PowerEdge C4130 and R730 servers are now available with NVIDIA Tesla P100 accelerators, designed to boost throughput and save money for HPC and hyperscale data centers, advancing intensive deep learning applications and applying artificial intelligence techniques to drive advances in science.
- The University of Pisa is using the Dell EMC PowerEdge C4130 servers, with NVIDIA Tesla P100 accelerators and NVIDIA Deep Learning GPU Training System (DIGITS), for deep learning of DNA sequencing.
- Additions of Dell EMC Isilon, DSSD, ScaleIO and Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) to the expanded HPC portfolio to further accelerate storage and cloud capabilities for HPC customers.
Stating on the latest development, Jim Ganthier, senior vice president, Validated Solutions and HPC Organization, Dell EMC, said, “Dell EMC is uniquely capable of breaking through the barriers of data-centric HPC and navigating new and varied workloads that are converging with big data and cloud. We are collaborating with the HPC community, including our customers, to advance and optimize HPC innovations while making these capabilities easily accessible and deployable for organizations and businesses of all sizes.”
