Dell Technologies (NYSE: DELL) announces edge innovations across its infrastructure and PC portfolio to help organizations simplify deployments and capture more value from data generated and processed outside the traditional data center and public cloud--from rugged and remote locations to retail stores and factory floors.
"The edge is technology's next great frontier, and it's all around us, everywhere from retail to manufacturing, smart cities and hospitals," said Michael Dell, chairman and chief executive officer, Dell Technologies. "At Dell, we're innovating simple solutions, so organizations can analyze data closer to where it's created, make faster decisions, improve outcomes and drive progress."
Research firm IDC estimates that 50% of new IT infrastructure will be deployed at the edge by 2023.(1) With 69% of the Fortune 100 already using Dell Technologies edge solutions(2), the company supports data life cycle needs for what is becoming the next major technology frontier. New solutions and updates announced today include:
-- Dell EMC VxRail satellite nodes bring VxRail's operational model and
efficiencies to edge sites with a reduced infrastructure footprint. Now
verticals like retail, manufacturing and remote branch offices can get
started with VxRail for less. As the only HCI solution jointly
engineered with VMware, VxRail satellite node single-node deployments
automate day-to-day operations, health monitoring and lifecycle
management from a centralized location without the need for local
technical and specialized resources.
-- Dell Technologies Validated Design for Manufacturing Edge with Litmus
helps businesses connect, manage and orchestrate disparate industrial
edge devices, data and applications--from the factory floor to the
enterprise cloud--with no programming required. Manufacturers can make
quick decisions to repair equipment before it fails, improve production
quality and save costs with real-time data analytics and centralized
device management provided by the enterprise-grade Litmus Industrial IoT
edge platform. Built on Dell EMC VxRail or PowerEdge servers, with the
option to use VMware Edge Compute Stack, this is the second solution
from Dell Technologies to help businesses tackle manufacturing edge
-- Dell EMC Edge Gateway Dell EMC Edge Gateway helps companies securely
connect multiple edge devices across OT and IT environments to provide
valuable insights. This compact, 5G capable(3), fanless Edge Gateway
with 9(th) Gen Intel(®) Core(TM) processors is designed to work in
industrial environments and withstand temperature ranges from minus 4 to
140 degrees Fahrenheit. The gateway, available direct to customers and
through OEM engagements, offers storage and compute capabilities that
can run localized data processing and analytics applications, helping
solve data collection and processing pain points.
-- Dell EMC Streaming Data Platform (SDP) adds enhanced GPU optimization to
ingest streaming video in a lower latency and frame rate environment and
support real-time analytics on Dell EMC VxRail and PowerEdge servers.
Organizations can run lightweight workloads on a single core using a new
edge bundle, so they can start small and scale their infrastructure
based on IT needs.
-- Latitude 5430 Rugged and Latitude 7330 Rugged Extreme laptops are
designed to withstand harsh environments while maintaining the highest
levels of performance and connectivity. The Latitude 5430 Rugged laptop
is 5G capable(3) and ready for work from anywhere as the industry's
lightest(4), most-powerful(5) 14" semi-rugged laptop. The Latitude 7330
Rugged Extreme laptop is 5G-capable(6) and ready to take on the most
extreme environments as the industry's smallest 13" fully-rugged
These innovations are the latest examples of how Dell is expanding its existing edge portfolio with capabilities to meet unique customer needs. Dell Technologies APEX Cloud Services with VMware Cloud, announced at VMworld, provides a Dell-managed secure and consistent platform for organizations to move workloads across multiple cloud and edge environments and scale resources quickly with predictable pricing and transparent costs. Additionally, new Dell EMC PowerEdge tower and rack servers help organizations manage everything from business-critical workloads to virtualization at the edge.
"Technology leaders are facing the very tall order of finding the right infrastructure to manage data at the edge and the right solutions to capture value from that data to make real-time, data-driven decisions," said Matthew Eastwood, senior vice president, IDC. "The Dell Technologies edge portfolio spanning infrastructure, PC and services helps organizations of all sizes make sense of their data."
