Michael Dell: Tech ‘Built For AI First’ Will Dominate Computing
‘We should be thinking about and working right now on how we build our systems, first for machine intelligence, then for the other applications and uses out there,’ says Dell Technologies founder, chairman and CEO Michael Dell.

PowerEdge servers combines temperature monitors with intelligent controls that use Dell’s liquid cooling, and arrays of air movers to make more efficient energy decisions. The devices’ new motherboards use fewer RPMs, which reduces the amount of energy used and allows for denser deployments and a consolidated stack of hardware.
“All of this ensures a much-improved performance per watt and creates significant value for customers,” said Rajesh Pohani, Dell’s vice president of portfolio and product management for PowerEdge, HPC and core compute. “But with the upward trend of energy costs globally, and particularly significant increases in some parts of the world, customers are looking for better TCO (total costs of ownership) and ways to more granularly monitor manage and cap their power usage.”
He said paired with Dell’s automation and system management, the servers can analyze and prevent a server related power thermal event by analyzing historical and present power consumption, and temparature readings to best define power policy for the customer’s needs.
