Dell Expands HPC-On-Demand And Server GPU Options, Debuting Omnia Software at ISC21
Dell Expanding HPC-On-Demand And Server GPU Options, Debuting Omnia Software at ISC21
When Dell CEO Michael Dell and VMware co-founder Larry Page held an early morning talk at the recent Enterprise Software Forum in Las Vegas, the two men talked about their visions for next-generation data center machines, including a future-proof server built from the ground up with a combination of Intel Xeon server processors and Nvidia® GeForce® GPUs. There has been a great deal of interest in Dell’s vision of a future-proof, Dell-powered data center (or, “Dell Expanding HPC-On-Demand”) with the recently introduced Xeon E5 v3 processors, the Xeon E7 v3 processors, and the Xeon v6 processors. However, the two guys didn’t talk about their plans for a server machine that combines GPUs and Xeon processors.
With the announcement of Omnia, which was presented during the same session, Dell and its partners (Red Hat and NVIDIA) will be addressing this need, as well. This software platform and architecture will bring the hardware platform up to a level that Dell will be able to use for server HPC workloads, including big data. We are told Omnia should be ready for use by Q4 2010.
Omnia is a new software platform that is designed to make it easier for the end user to work with Xeon compute resources and Nvidia GPU compute resources in a single machine.
Omnia is an open source platform for NVIDIA hardware acceleration and will be available for free download. It makes it easy for developers to use NVIDIA CUDA, NVIDIA CUDA C/C++, NVIDIA Tesla® GPUs, NVIDIA Tesla V100, Cray-YMP, Cray-YMP2 and many other accelerated hardware accelerators on a single platform that can be used for big data and data science, high-performance computing, game development and scientific visualization.
The Omnia architecture and development platform is an enabling technology and is based on a set of design choices that are not yet ready for production. We are currently working with NVIDIA and the developer community to make the platform easier to use. One of the initial areas that is being tested is a new support for GPU compute using the new OpenCL/CUDA standard, but the platform will also support more traditional GPU compute such as CPU.
Software vs. Hardware: The Case of Omnia
This notion of software vs. Hardware companies have become a false dichotomy,” Baker says. “It’s an antiquated way of thinking about companies. People hate hearing the words “digital transformation” because we use it so much, but at the end of the day, what is digital transformation? It is the embodiment of business processes into software and automating i hearing the words “digital transformation” because we use it so much, but at the end of the day, what is digital transformation? It is the embodiment of business processes into software and automating it. It’s everyone and everywhere. It has certainly been our focus in terms of innovation for quite some time. The bending of sheet metal and the printing of the circuit board are all really important and we’re really good at that. Customer experience is characterized almost exclusively by a software experience. This continuing shift toward software can be seen in the latest moves by Dell in the expanding HPC space. This week, the company released Omnia, an open source software platform that helps organizations to manage their HPC, AI and data analytics workloads more easily through greater automation of provisioning and management tasks. The platform essentially creates a pool of resources that can be utilized to address workload needs.
It’s well known that the most powerful computer ever made was the original IBM PC/AT and that the idea of a computer as a “device” was never seriously considered at this point in time. For the most part, the idea of a “computer program” began with the invention of the electronic computer in 1891. In the early days, it was thought that computers would not contain their own programs because it would make them too bulky to carry around and might slow down their use. This thinking was based on the work of Charles Babbage, who created a paper program that could be stored in the paper “machine tape”. This paper tape was then used as a storage device for other programs, such as the one Babbage created for the aforementioned PC, the punched card, and also, the punched tape.
In 1900, Robert Hooke gave the first public demonstration of the concept of an electronic computer running an electronic “program”. By this time, the concept of a computer program had gotten off the ground but there was no public discussion or even a lot of public awareness of the potential to use computers in this manner, or what program could be loaded when. Since this concept involved an electronic “program”, the idea of “hardware” was introduced.
The idea of a hard drive in the late 1800’s, using a spinning hub to move data, was a major step up in computing. However, the physical idea of a hard drive, like any physical technology, was still limited in its ability to store large amounts of data. With the introduction of the hard disk for storage, a new era of data storage was born.
In 1928, the first modern computer, the IBM PC, was released. The first computer had a very limited amount of memory, a very simplistic design, and no concept of how it was supposed to interface into a network. This was the beginning of the rise of the personal computer and the rise of the desktop computer. The PC was the first computer that was able to do what was thought impossible: put a file containing a program on the hard drive and have it appear to be a device on the desktop.
First Year US$60 billion+$10 billion Group Revenue
Group revenue dipped above US$60 billion for the first time, adding in just a year more than US$10 billion, or 20% year-over-year growth. In a single year, this means US$10 billion in accumulated growth or 20% year-on-year growt billion in accumulated growth or 20% year-on-year growth. The Intelligent Devices Group (PCSD and MBG) and the Data Center Group have achieved revenue growth of 20% and 15% respectively.
The Group’s revenue will be primarily provided in its U. domestic operations. In Q1 and Q2, the group’s U. revenues will grow steadily. Revenue growth will be driven by its U. operations as well as its international division.
In Q1 and Q2, the Group’s revenue in its International Division will grow more than that of its domestic operations, as compared to Q1. This division had been the largest contributor of revenue and profit in the Group’s Q1. It is expected to have more than two-thirds of the global revenue of the group in this quarter. The company will be able to expand its revenue in the International Division in the near future.
The group’s international division generated operating profit YOY of US$8,200 in Q1 and Q YOY of US$8,200 in Q1 and Q2. In Q1, this division was responsible for almost 40 percent of Operating Profit (OP) and 33% of Total Revenue (TR) of the grou (OP) and 33% of Total Revenue (TR) of the group. By the end of the Group’s Q2, this operating profit was expected to further increase, and it will become the fourth largest operating profit contributor of the group.
Revenue for the international division is expected to increase significantly in Q2 for the reasons explained in the previous paragraph.
Sales of the Group’s Products will increase in Q2, especially in the U. The reason for the increase is that many of the products sold in the U. market have already started to gain traction and are recognized as a strong selling point among consumers. This will help the group’s revenues.

Sales of its Services will be mainly driven by its insurance services, which will likely help the Group’s revenue.
