HOPKINTON, Mass./ISC17, Frankfurt, Germany - June 21, 2017 -
At ISC17, Dell EMC is announcing an agreement to further democratize and advance HPC, as well as additions to its Ready Solutions portfolio that will help customers further optimize their HPC projects. Working with leading researchers and innovators worldwide, Dell EMC HPC solutions empower customers to make critical advances in industries such as research, life sciences and manufacturing.
New Strategic Agreement and Industry Recognition Underscore HPC Leadership
Dell EMC and NVIDIA have expanded their collaboration by signing a new strategic agreement to include joint product development of new products and solutions that address the burgeoning workload and datacenter requirements, with GPU-accelerated solutions for HPC, data analytics, and artificial intelligence. Additionally, Dell EMC will work with NVIDIA to support the new Volta architecture and intends to launch Volta-based solutions by the end of the year.
Dell EMC delivered systems also continue to earn recognition as industry leaders, with an increasing number of systems in the TOP500 and Green500 lists. Published twice annually, the TOP500 list shows the 500 most powerful commercially available computer systems in the world. The Green500 list provides a ranking of the most energy-efficient supercomputers in the world. Multiple Dell EMC delivered systems appear on these lists, including:
Dell EMC is also collaborating with CoolIT Systems to provide a factory-installed, direct contact CPU liquid cooling solution that will address power and cooling challenges for a wide range of customers. The cold plate solution, designed and manufactured by CoolIT Systems, will be available in a select Dell EMC PowerEdge 14th generation servers. It uses warm water to cool the CPUs, eliminating the need for chilled water and reducing cooling energy costs by up to 56 percent for data center infrastructure (cooling PUE). The solution also features increased rack density, enabling customers to deploy up to 23 percent more IT equipment.
Top Researchers Continue to Choose Dell EMC HPC Solutions
Ian Buck, vice president and general manager - Accelerated Computing Group, NVIDIA
“Increasingly, deep learning is a strategic imperative for every major technology company, permeating every aspect of work. Specifically, artificial intelligence is being driven by leaps in GPU computing power that defy the slowdown in Moore’s law. The work we are doing to advance GPU computing alongside Dell EMC will empower AI developers as they race to build new frameworks to tackle some of the greatest challenges of our time.”
Garrison R. Vaughn, NCCS systems engineer, ADAPT Team – NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center
“Our leadership challenges us to do new, innovative things, which is where ADAPT came from. ADAPT enables researchers to uncover valuable information, which is why it is critical that the system performs well. The Dell servers, working as compute nodes inside ADAPT, have been real workhorses and have been reliable. That’s impressive, especially with the heat we run through the system.”
Paul Teich, principal analyst, TIRIAS Research
“Dell EMC is moving beyond its vertical HPC segment focus and strengthening its commitment to key HPC platform technologies. A new strategic agreement with NVIDIA for joint innovation in HPC, big data, and machine learning and collaborating with CoolIT Systems for factory-installed warm water cooling systems will accelerate Dell EMC’s mission to democratize HPC.”
Armughan Ahmad, senior vice president & general manager – Ready Solutions and Alliances, Dell EMC
“Dell EMC is proud of our work to help the research community and its customers capitalize on HPC, expanding it from a niche market to a broader audience, from departmental clusters to leadership-class systems. Our commitment to continuing to partner with strong leaders and push the envelope around HPC innovation is solid and growing, as evidenced by our market leadership, industry-leading products, and world-class customers and deployments.”
