Dell EMC Brings Machine Learning to Mainstream Enterprises

This week at SC17, Dell EMC announced new machine learning and deep learning solutions, continuing the company’s work to bring high performance computing and data analytics capabilities to mainstream enterprises worldwide. This enables organizations to take advantage of the convergence of HPC and data analytics and realize advancements in many areas including fraud detection, image processing, financial investment analysis and personalized medicine. These new innovations represent the next step in the company’s focus on democratizing HPC, optimizing data analytics with artificial intelligence technology innovations, and advancing both the HPC and AI communities.

While AI techniques, such as machine learning and deep learning, are rapidly being deployed by many organizations across several industries, only a small number possess the expertise to design, deploy and manage such systems to use them effectively for rapidly gaining new insights. By leveraging Dell EMC’s ecosystem of strong, curated partnerships and internal expertise in HPC and data analytics services, the company’s new solutions offer customers the ability to harness the power of the massive amounts of their collected data, delivering faster, better and deeper business insights in real-time.

As emerging technologies, enterprises often have difficulty knowing where to begin to get the most out of their machine and deep learning solutions. To help them benefit from machine or deep learning, quickly and efficiently, Dell EMC offers customers HPC solutions focused on specific use cases and business problems backed by industry and HPC expertise and guidance.

The addition of advanced deep-learning capabilities to our Artemis supercomputer, thanks to the Dell EMC PowerEdge C4140, allows our researchers to investigate questions previously unattainable,” said Dr. Jeremy Hammond, associate director, research technology, The University of Sydney, Australia. “Informatics and supercomputing represent a revolutionary shift to the academy, and the performance and flexibility of the Dell EMC PowerEdge C4140 is a perfect resource for our extremely talented researchers and students. This transformational computing platform ensures our initiatives in translational data science, the biomedical sciences, humanities and social sciences, and advanced engineering are making a lasting impact on communities and industry, both locally and globally.”

Combined with knowledge from Dell EMC experts, the new Dell EMC Machine and Deep Learning Ready Bundles are part of a new portfolio that delivers on the commitment of democratizing HPC and helping customers achieve faster, better and deeper data insights. These Ready Bundles combine pre-tested and validated servers, storage, networking and services optimized for machine and deep learning applications.

The new Ready Bundles:

  • Enable faster, better, deeper data insights: Identifying, analyzing and automating data patterns empowers customers to do more with their data in a wide range of applications such as facial recognition for security, tumor diagnosis in healthcare, and better understanding of human behaviors in the retail industry.
  • Include trusted experts: Using the knowledge and experience of Dell EMC and its strong ecosystem of technology partners helps customers get the most out of machine and deep learning solutions quickly.
  • Maximize efficiency, security and control: Enabling customers to reduce the costs associated with moving significant amounts of data in hybrid cloud environments while minimizing risk and maximizing data control.

Our customers consistently tell us that one of their biggest challenges is how to best manage and learn from the ever-increasing amount of data they collect daily. With Dell EMC’s high performance computing experience, we’ve seen how our artificial intelligence solutions can deliver critical insights from this data, faster than ever before possible,” said Armughan Ahmad, senior vice president/general manager, Hybrid Cloud and Ready Solutions, Dell EMC. Working with our strategic technology partners, we’re able to bring these powerful capabilities to all enterprises. When you think about what this means for industries like financial services or personalized medicine, the possibilities are endless and exciting.”

Dell EMC Deep Learning Ready Bundle customers will benefit from the introduction of the new Dell EMC PowerEdge C4140 server, supporting latest generation NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU accelerators with PCIe and NVLink high-speed interconnect technology. This new offering is an example of the Dell EMC and NVIDIA strategic agreement for joint development of new HPC, data analytics, and artificial intelligence products and solutions announced at ISC’17 in June.

Dell EMC also plans to introduce Ready Bundles working closely with Intel technology. Dell EMC and Intel have embarked on a Joint Innovation Agreement to collaborate on advancing artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning.
