Jeff Clarke On Dell's New Midrange Storage And AI Strategy

‘It is going to be a modern file system and modern software stack – better described as, it's going to be a micro-service-based architecture and a container-based architecture,’ says Jeff Clarke, vice chairman of Products & Operations at Dell.

How much artificial intelligence and machine learning is inside Dell's storage portfolio?

Our PowerMax makes six billion decisions a day. It’s got artificial intelligence (AI) built into it ahead of anybody else. It has the greatest AI engine in storage. For a storage administrator, it does the tasks on its own. You have the world of artificial intelligence workloads to help customers and do their analytics, then there's the role of AI and machine learning that makes their way into the products. If you start with, for example our Precision Workstations, we have AI in those products so we can understand the characteristics of the application being run and we can recommend multiple configurations to optimize performance. You go to the other extreme, our high-end PowerMax leading product in the market, it has 30 years of Dell EMC knowledge in its AI engine of how to run, build and administer storage. It makes 6 billion decisions a day. The AI engine is incredible.

What is Dell's AI strategy going forward?

[AI] reduces the tasks a storage administrator needs to do because it's making the decisions, which is how I look at artificial intelligence and machine learning as it makes its way into our products. Many of the tasks that humans do today, we're going to automate so those humans can do other higher-value tasks. The data migration work that we're doing is going to have an AI engine in there so we know how to pull off our legacy arrays to be able to pull it into the new array. You'll see us apply artificial intelligence and machine learning across all of the portfolio, as well as build AI-specific workloads servers like we did with the R940xa, for example.
