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.
The new generation of PowerEdge servers are made to process AI and ML workloads, with more than 80 percent of this new portfolio of servers supporting discrete GPUs, and all of the devices supporting CPU-based AI. These are designed to meet the customer’s needs as more enterprises deploy sophisticated computing applications.
“We developed and are launching purpose-built portfolios for AI and ML workloads and products, optimized for CSP workloads. Bringing customers, the type of compute they need for the locations they need it.”
The new devices will drive value for customers who need power for training AI models, data analytics, and applications that build AI into their solutions.
On the new series of servers, AI inferencing is increased by up to 2.9-times. The devices also give a 20-percent boost to the number of virtual desktop infrastructure users and a 50 percent boost to the number of SAP sales and distribution users on one server compared with earlier models.
