Ladies and Gentlemen, Start Your Engines: The Race to SC18 is On!

SC18 is always a showcase for the latest and greatest technology for high-performance computing applications. And that’s what you’ll find in the Dell EMC booth.

If you’re coming to SC18 in Dallas (Nov. 11–16), you’ll definitely want to spend some time in the Dell EMC booth. We’ve got some ultra-cool things happening there, from demos of the Dell EMC PowerEdge server version of muscle cars to — shhhhh now — a whisper suite.

Let’s start with the muscle cars first — the server is the engine of the HPC car, and who doesn’t love muscle cars? At SC18, you can get a close-up look at several of our new high-performance server configurations built for targeted applications in the digital races.

For the financial services industry, we’re showcasing the Dell EMC PowerEdge R640 server with new FPGA accelerators. As for those accelerators, well, we can’t talk about that until the press release drops. For now, let’s just say that this muscle car delivers the performance of up to two Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, each with up to 28 cores. And we’re adding a world-class accelerator to the package. Vroom!

For artificial intelligence applications, we’re highlighting the accelerator-optimized, high-density Dell EMC PowerEdge C4140 server. With two Intel Xeon Scalable processors and support for up to four NVIDIA® Tesla® GPUs, this is a server built for the demands of cognitive computing workloads. It is a sleek machine with a lot of horsepower under the hood.

To rev up your AI workloads further, we’re showcasing the Dell EMC PowerEdge R840 server and the Dell EMC PowerEdge R940xa server with NVIDIA GPUs to accelerate databases in AI applications. The PowerEdge R840 is designed to turbo-charge data analytics applications with up to four Intel Xeon Scalable processors and up two double-wide NVIDIA® Tesla® GPUs. The xa in the PowerEdge R940xa is for extreme acceleration of business-critical databases and applications with up to four Intel Xeon Scalable processors and up to four doublewide NVIDIA® Tesla® GPUs. Both of these servers are also available with FPGAs instead of GPUs.

And, finally, for data-intensive research workloads, we’re highlighting the Dell EMC PowerEdge R7425 server. This two-socket AMD-based server is built to deliver outstanding TCO for data analytics, HPC-driven applications; memory-bound and scale-up software-defined deployments.

The Dell EMC booth is not just about the muscle cars, but also about some of the elite teams that drive and supercharge these muscle cars. Pull into the Meet the Experts stop to fuel up with HPC customers and practitioners.

And, let’s not forget that other attraction in the Dell EMC booth. We’re also running a whhhhhisper suite where you can get a sneak peek at some exciting upcoming technology.

Come by Dell Technologies Booth #3218 to experience the thrill and power of the Dell EMC PowerEdge server version of muscle cars. Vroom.
