Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI: GPU-as-a-Service frees up accelerator access

Co-processors like graphics processing units (GPUs) are typically trapped in individual workstations or servers and often underutilized, sometimes at less than 15% of capacity. The Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI: GPU-as-a-Service deliver two different designs to create virtual GPU pools to make better use of these valuable resources.

The newest design includes the latest VMware vSphere 7 with Bitfusion, which VMware announced today and makes it possible to virtualize GPUs on premises. Factory-installed by Dell’s flexible supply chain, VMware vSphere 7 in combination with Bitfusion lets developers and data scientists pool their powerful IT resources and share them across data centers. This helps increase utilization rates by providing self-service access to the right resource for the right workload at the right time.

Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI: GPUaaS also uses the latest VMware Cloud Foundation with VMware vSphere 7 support for Kubernetes and containerized applications to run AI workloads anywhere. Containers make it easier to bring cloud-native applications into production with the ability to move workloads as needed to make the most of hybrid clouds.

Dell EMC Ready Solutions for Virtualized HPC speed time from testing to operations

Most HPC workloads run on dedicated systems that require specialized skills to deploy and manage. These Dell EMC Ready Solutions for Virtualized HPC (vHPC) architectures can include VMware Cloud Foundation with VMware vSphere 7 featuring Bitfusion, making it simpler and more economical to use VMware environments for demanding HPC and AI applications in computational chemistry, bioinformatics and computer-aided engineering.

For very large HPC implementations, the Dell EMC Ready Solutions for vHPC provide an option to include VMware vSphere Scale-Out Edition for additional cost savings.

With the ability to virtualize HPC and AI operations with VMware, IT teams can quickly provision hardware as needed, speed up initial deployment and configuration, and save time with simpler centralized management and security. According to Forrester Consulting, Dell EMC Ready Solutions for vHPC can deliver up to 18 times faster AI model development — reducing the time from months to days. It also delivers up to 20% faster hardware configuration and integration than self-installation and an estimated return on investment up to 111%.1

Dell EMC OpenManage software advances systems management

The Dell EMC OpenManage systems management software, included with PowerEdge servers in these new Ready Solutions, helps AI and advanced computing administrators improve system uptime, keep data insights flowing and prepare for AI-enabled operations. New OpenManage advancements include:

• OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter, supporting vSphere Lifecycle Manager, automates software, driver and firmware updates holistically to save time and simplify operations.

• The enhanced OpenManage Mobile app gives administrators the ability to view power and thermal policies, perform emergency power reduction and monitor internal storage from anywhere in the world.

NEXCOM and Enea Jointly Develop Open Source Software Kit for Secure SD-WAN

NEXCOM | January 19, 2021

Enea and NEXCOM have mutually built up an open source programming pack for secure SD-WAN, making it simple for frameworks integrators and correspondence specialist co-ops to assess and convey endeavor networks utilizing all inclusive client premises hardware. The unit incorporates flexiWAN, an open source SD-WAN application, and pfSense, an open source firewall, both virtualized to run on uCPE. Additionally included are robotization contents for onboarding and testing, just as broad how-to-guides. The open source software is configured for Enea's uCPE virtualization and management platform, Enea NFV Access, and two of NEXCOM's Intel-based whitebox appliances – DTA 1160 and TCA 5170B. The two equipment stages give distinctive systems administration limits at various value focuses, covering a wide scope of execution necessities for different use cases. NEXCOM's DTA 1160 depends on an Intel Atom processor and intended for lightweight, scale-out outstanding tasks at hand, while TCA 5170B depends on an Intel Xeon D processor for high virtualized execution. The two arrangements have been tried to meet throughput prerequisites of generally little and medium sized branches. The arrangement brief was made by Intel Corporation. Giving a total application structure, including open source Virtual Network Functions and every fundamental arrangement, the product pack altogether abbreviates the time expected to raise an answer on uCPE. It can undoubtedly be adjusted to oblige inclinations for explicit VNF merchants by supplanting the open source VNFs with other SD-WAN or firewall VNFs, or expanding them with extra applications. "Our collaboration with Enea is part of our strategy," says Allan Chiu, VP of Network & Communication Solutions at NEXCOM. "It allows us to bring pre-verified solution kits to the market for quick and easy adoption by end customers. We hope to increase our collaborative efforts in the years to come."
