At SC18, Dell EMC has expanded its high performance computing (HPC) portfolios designed for applications in artificial intelligence, bioscience, weather forecasting and more.

With its new Ready Solutions advancements, Dell EMC addresses the HPC workload demands of today’s high-storage infrastructure.

The new solutions complement its portfolio of Ready Solutions with the Dell EMC Isilon Scale-out NAS storage powered by the Isilon OneFS operating system.

The Dell EMC Ready Solution for HPC Lustre Storage and Dell EMC Ready Solution for HPC NFS Storage are now available with the new Dell EMC PowerVault ME4 storage arrays.

Dell EMC built the ME4 Series with 75 percent more drives than the PowerVault MD3 to increase raw storage capacity by 122 percent, while also boosting read IOPS performance by 4X, the company said.

The system also delivers increased density, when compared to the PowerVault MD3; and it is scalable too.

Dell EMC Ready Solution for HPC Lustre Storage with the new PowerVault ME4 delivers excellent throughput per building block with on-the-fly storage expansion, Dell said.

The company also announced Dell EMC PowerEdge R640, R740, R740xd and R7425 servers that support the latest GPU and FPGA accelerators to speed results in data analytics and AI applications.

The new series of PowerEdge servers are designed to support critical applications including video content streaming, financial services and defense.

Dell EMC Ready Solution for HPC Lustre Storage on ME4 and Dell EMC Ready Solution for HPC NFS Storage on PowerVault ME4 are available now.

Dell EMC PowerEdge R640, R740, R740xd and R7425 servers have planned support for NVIDIA Tesla T4 Tensor Core GPUs in the first quarter of 2019 and Xilinx Alveo U200 FPGAs in December 2018.
