Dell Technologies continues to make advancements in high performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI). The IT giant just debuted a pair of Dell EMC Ready Solutions — one for HPC Genomics and one for Manufacturing with Altair Hyperworks Unlimited.
The vendor also announced partnerships for the delivery of HPCaaS and AIaaS, and software integrations for virtual environments to simplify HPC cluster management and provisioning in private and public clouds.

“Innovation and world-changing ideas have always started with people thinking big,” said Thierry Pellegrino, vice president, data-centric workloads and solutions at Dell Technologies. “We’re committed to advancing and democratizing HPC and AI by making these technologies more accessible to the big thinkers who will shape our future.”
Dell is among the top vendors in the HPC market. In fact, Dell garnered 22% of the HPC server market in 2019, according to Hyperion Research. Price is driving down the cost of HPC units, resulting in a market shift. Today, half of the HPC market is the private sector. Not too long ago, the it was government and academic research.
Dell EMC Ready Solution for HPC Genomics targets small and medium life sciences and health care organizations. The new offer consists of modular building blocks that include Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, PowerSwitch networking and Dell EMC storage. The building block design allows for configurations to meet specific use cases.
The Dell EMC Ready Solution for HPC Genomics offers a number of benefits; for example, faster time to production by as much as six months to a year, better performance and improved scalability.
The Dell EMC Ready Solution for Digital Manufacturing with Altair Hyperworks Unlimited appliances is available as a service. The offer combines PowerEdge servers, Dell EMC storage and PowerSwitch networking with Altair’s simulation applications and HPC middleware.
Altair HyperWorks Unlimited, a fully managed HPC appliance, is for computer-aided engineering (CAE). It’s available in a physical or virtual appliance.
The new Dell offer is designed for small and medium-size manufacturers with 500 or fewer employees. Offer benefits included faster performance, easier scaling and reduced risk.
Dell EMC Ready Solutions with Bright Computing’s cluster manager help automate the process of building and managing modern high-performance clusters. Bright Cluster Manager 9.1 provides an integration with VMware vSphere. This latest integration allows virtual high-performance clusters to be created and managed without the need for skill and knowledge of vSphere. The cluster-as-a-service for VMware allows organizations to optimize usage of their vSphere infrastructure for HPC and AI workloads.
Finally, collaborating with cloud-based HPC providers such as DXC Technology in Asia Pacific and Japan, R Systems in North America and Verne Global in Europe, theMiddle East and Africa, Dell delivers HPC and AI as a service.
