Talking Tech with Travis: Episode 14 – AI and PowerEdge
- August 15, 2023
Seldom has the world of technology seen the explosive growth that we’ve witnessed with generative AI in the past year. In this episode, I sit down with Dave Lincoln, VP of Dell Technologies Compute Systems, to discuss the latest generation of PowerEdge servers and how we’ve designed them to help customers address the needs of demanding GenAI applications.
In addition to a quick overview of the more than two dozen new PowerEdge servers introduced just this year, we dig deeper into the models specifically designed to cater to the demanding needs of GenAI applications. This strategic move has garnered immense attention from customers seeking to harness the power of generative AI for a wide range of creative and data-driven tasks. Designed with the latest memory, storage, CPU and GPU technologies, Dave discusses their relevance in driving the broad array of AI workloads and the Dell innovations that brought them to fruition.
Finally, we delve into the increasing challenge of powering and cooling these large server infrastructure solutions and how Dell’s design decisions, software capabilities and platform innovations help customers air and/or liquid cool these environments for customers. By optimizing power consumption and cooling mechanisms, PowerEdge empowers customers to achieve their sustainability goals while maintaining peak performance levels, making GenAI deployment not only powerful, but also environmentally responsible.
