Dell Expands Generative AI PortfolioDell Expands Generative AI Portfolio
Dell says new on-premises solutions help drive generative AI efforts with more intelligent data collection, multicloud access and professional services.
October 5, 2023
Dell Technologies is expanding its generative AI (GenAI) solutions portfolio of products and services.
The company is keeping to its messaging of supporting workloads across public clouds, on-premises environments and at the edge.
Dell’s Jeff Boudreau
Dell’s new chief AI officer, Jeff Boudreau, said companies need “a robust data foundation with the right infrastructure, software and services. That’s what we are building with our expanded validated designs, professional services, modern data lakehouse and the world’s broadest GenAI solutions portfolio.”
Customizing Generative AI Models to Maximize Proprietary Data
The Dell Validated Design for Generative AI with NVIDIA for Model Customization helps customers more quickly and securely extract intelligence from their data. It does this with pre-trained models that extract intelligence from data without building models from scratch.

With a scalable blueprint for customization, Dell said organizations now have multiple ways to tailor generative AI models to accomplish specific tasks with their proprietary data. Its design supports a wide range of computational requirements and use cases, spanning training diffusion, transfer learning and prompt tuning.
Dell announced at Dell Technologies World in May that it would be partnering with NVIDIA on Project Helix, a joint initiative to deliver generative AI to on-premises environments.
The new solution is available globally through traditional channels and Dell APEX starting in late October.
Preparing Data, People and Processes for Generative AI
Dell said it is also looking to help customers generate better, faster business results with expanded generative AI professional services capabilities. These include:
Data Preparation Services to provide customers with “a clean, accurate data set in the right format.” This enables AI projects to move smoothly while simplifying data integration and delivering quality data output.
Dell Implementation Services establish an operational generative AI platform for inferencing and model customization, accelerating time to value. Paired with Dell Managed Services, Dell can operate the full NVIDIA-based GenAI solution, improving operational efficiency and allowing customers to focus on building their proprietary GenAI use cases.
Education Services help customers gain the critical skills to close the GenAI capabilities gap.
Dell Professional Services for Generative AI are available in select countries starting in late October.
Modernizing Data Infrastructure for AI and Analytics
Dell and Starburst are partnering to help customers accelerate AI and analytics efforts. This will culminate with an open, modern data lakehouse solution, said the vendor.
The solution will integrate Starburst’s analytics software with Dell’s PowerEdge compute platform, combined with Dell storage, helping customers extract insights from data wherever it resides. Built with open software principles, customers will gain access to multicloud data to get the most value for analytics and AI-driven workflows and deployments.
The solution with Starburst has planned global availability in the first half of 2024.
