Dell Technologies booth

Dell Technologies has released its newest Dell PowerEdge types of servers. This server portfolio from Dell has been expanded and improved, and it now includes server systems that target demanding applications including high performance computing (HPC), quantum computing, and artificial intelligence (AI).

“As compute innovation accelerates to keep pace with demand, customers are looking to upgrade their IT environments and harness advanced computing capabilities to speed discovery and insights,” said Rajesh Pohani, Vice President of Portfolio and Product Management for PowerEdge, HPC and Core Compute at Dell Technologies. “New Dell Technologies servers and solutions give businesses of all sizes access to technologies once only accessible for the world’s largest research institutions and government agencies, allowing them to tackle HPC, ease AI adoption and propel their businesses forward.”

Organizations may embrace HPC and AI projects to provide quicker, more intelligent results with the support of new Dell PowerEdge servers. The new server systems, which were developed in partnership with Intel and NVIDIA, employ Smart Cooling technology and give businesses the ability to leverage AI for model training, HPC modeling and simulation, core-to-edge inferencing, and data visualization.

  • PowerEdge XE9680 – Eight NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs or NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs are used in Dell’s first high performance 8x GPU server, resulting in optimum performance in an air-cooled architecture. To help deliver the best performance for AI applications, the server system integrates two future 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs and eight NVIDIA GPUs.
  • PowerEdge XE9640 – Intel Xeon processors and the Intel Data Center GPU Max Series are used in this next-generation 2U performance-optimized 4x GPU PowerEdge server. The server system is built to use less energy and more rack density with fully direct liquid cooling.
  • PowerEdge XE8640 – Air-cooled 4U performance optimized 4x GPU server featuring four NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs and NVIDIA NVLink technology, along with two upcoming 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs. In order to speed up and automate analysis, firms can create, train, and deploy machine learning models.

“As the world’s largest privately-held cloud computing company, with 27 cloud data center locations globally, it’s essential that we deploy technology to support the most demanding AI, machine learning, and high-performance computing workloads,” said J.J. Kardwell, CEO at Constant, the creator of Vultr. “Dell PowerEdge XE9680 servers with the NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPU and A100 Tensor Core GPU will provide the capabilities needed to deliver maximum performance and value.”

“As companies look for opportunities to drive revenue and bring down costs, NVIDIA’s accelerated computing platform is helping organizations around the world innovate in meaningful ways,” said Ian Buck, Vice President, Hyperscale and HPC, NVIDIA.Dell Technologies’ new 4x and 8x PowerEdge servers – supercharged with NVIDIA H100 GPUs – will enable enterprises everywhere to tackle the diverse demands of data-intensive HPC and AI workloads, with an infrastructure that drives topline and bottom-line results.”


Industry-wide growth and fresh insights are being fueled by HPC, yet businesses frequently struggle with time, money, and expertise constraints.

Organizations may operate large-scale, computationally intensive HPC workloads provided as-a-Service with a fully managed, subscription-based experience thanks to Dell APEX High Performance Computing. Customers have a choice of solutions for manufacturing and life sciences workloads.

Organizations that use Dell APEX High Performance Computing have access to an HPC cluster manager, a container orchestrator, a workload manager, and underlying HPC-optimized hardware configurations. With one, three, or five-year subscriptions, the service provides the adaptable capacity and security needed to meet shifting workload demands and get quicker outcomes while maximizing HPC expenditures.

Quantum Technologies

Organizations may start benefiting from quantum technology’s faster computation with Dell Quantum Computing Solution. This solution expedites chemistry and materials modeling, natural language processing, and machine learning while assisting clients in developing algorithmic approaches to challenging use cases.

This scalable, hybrid classical-quantum architecture is powered by PowerEdge servers and the Dell Classic Quantum Simulator. The approach incorporates quantum computing into the current classical computational infrastructure using IonQ quantum technology. Quantum workloads may be executed with on-premises or cloud-based quantum acceleration thanks to the full integration of the Qiskit Dell Runtime and IonQ Aria software.

The fast-paced global financial industry will probably need access to technologies that can provide measurable returns on investments. In order to examine risk and return more quickly, the New Dell Validated Design for HPC – Risk Assessment executes data-intensive simulations on HPC systems, including GPU-accelerated Dell PowerEdge servers, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and NVIDIA Bright Cluster Manager software.

Financial services firms can choose from the best configurations for system performance and efficiency thanks to the verified design. These configurations were created, tested, and fine-tuned by Dell HPC engineers and workload specialists for this particular use case. As a consequence, modular IT building blocks with a single point of contact for services enable streamlined design, setup, and ordering more rapidly.

“Dell Technologies and Intel are collaborating on innovative solutions in the HPC and AI space, bringing our various solutions including the Max Series GPU and 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors to Dell PowerEdge servers,” said Jeff McVeigh, Corporate Vice President, and General Manager, Super Compute Group, Intel. “Together we’re working to build a more sustainable path to powering the most challenging workloads on the planet.”
