How Dell EMC and NVIDIA Are Simplifying the AI Enterprise Data Center

Many organizations have begun to infuse AI into their products, services and supply chains, but IT departments need to scale these efforts in a systematic way. The newest DGX reference architecture — the Dell EMC Isilon with NVIDIA DGX-1 — is an integrated infrastructure offering that does just that. Sold through our joint channel, it gives customers a proven approach for rapidly deploying AI at scale in the data center.

The dramatic rise in AI compute deployments, often led by line-of-business leaders and accomplished within silos, has led to AI infrastructure sprawl. It’s much like the early days of cloud computing, where a consolidated, optimized, shared infrastructure was lacking, forcing teams to seek their own solutions. Businesses are now realizing they need AI at scale, and so enterprise IT teams are increasingly inserting themselves into their company’s AI agenda. To scale efficiently in the data center, like any other business-critical application needs to do, they’re using NVIDIA DGX-1 as their AI compute standard.
