Dell Technologies used SC22 to announce additions to the PowerEdge server portfolio, HPC workloads on APEX through an as-a-service experience, integration of hybrid quantum computing into existing classical computational ecosystems, and Dell Validated Design for HPC for risk assessment that analyze data sets.

There’s a lot to go through, so let’s break the announcement down by topic.

At the top of the list, Dell has announced additions to the PowerEdge server portfolio that will accelerate results in high-performance computing and artificial intelligence. Designed with Intel and NVIDIA, the new PowerEdge servers leverage Smart Cooling technology and enable organizations to leverage AI for model training, HPC modeling and simulation, core-to-edge inferencing, and data visualization.

There are three new PowerEdge servers:

  • PowerEdge XE9680: Dell’s first high-performance 8x GPU server uses eight NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs or NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs. The result is a server designed for optimal performance in an air-cooled design, with two new 4e Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, codenamed Sapphire Rapids, and eight NVIDIA GPUs to deliver maximum performance for AI workloads.

  • PowerEdge XE9640: This is a next-gen 2U performance-optimized 4x GPU PowerEdge server that combines the Intel Xeon processors and Intel Data Center GPU Max Series. Full direct liquid cooling can reduce energy costs by up to 3.1 times with greater rack density utilization.

  • PowerEdge XE8640: The air-cooled 4U performance-optimized 4x GPU server features four NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs and NVIDIA NVLink technology, along with two upcoming Sapphire Rapids 4th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors. This PowerEdge server is designed to help businesses develop, train, and deploy machine learning models to accelerate and automate analytics.

Dell’s Rajesh Pohani, vice president of portfolio and product management for PowerEdge, HPC and Core Compute, said:

“As computing innovation accelerates to keep up with demand, customers are looking to upgrade their IT environments and leverage advanced computing capabilities to accelerate discovery and insight. New servers and solutions from Dell Technologies give businesses of all sizes access to technologies that were once only accessible to the world’s largest research institutions and government agencies. This will enable them to address HPC, facilitate AI adoption and advance their business.”

Integrating quantum technologies into existing infrastructure.

Dell Quantum Computing Solution provides an easier way for organizations to take advantage of accelerated computing through quantum technology. This solution helps customers rapidly develop algorithmic approaches for complex use cases and accelerate chemistry and materials simulation, natural language processing, and machine learning.

This scalable classical-quantum hybrid platform uses the Dell classical quantum simulator built on PowerEdge servers. The solution integrates quantum computing with IonQ quantum technology into existing classical computing infrastructure. With the integrated Qiskit Dell Runtime and IonQ Aria software, quantum workloads can be run with quantum acceleration on-premises or in the cloud.

The financial industry offered Dell Validated Design for HPC.

Dell Validated Design for HPC – Risk Assessment runs data-intensive simulations on HPC systems, including GPU-accelerated Dell PowerEdge servers, Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® and NVIDIA Bright Cluster Manager® software. The validated design for HPC gives the financial industry the technology to look at large amounts of historical and real-time data to analyze risk and return faster with measurable return on investment.

The validated design provides financial service providers with optimal configurations for system performance and efficiency, while ensuring more accurate risk assessment. These configurations are designed, validated and tuned for this specific use case by Dell HPC engineers and workload experts. The result is modular IT building blocks that simplify the design, configuration and ordering process in hours instead of weeks with a single point of contact for services.
