AI, analytics drive Dell EMC storage, server upgrades

Dell EMC this week unveiled storage, server and hyperconvergence upgrades aimed at enterprises that are grappling with new application types, ongoing digital transformation efforts, and the pressure to deliver higher performance and greater automation in the data center.

On the storage front, Dell EMC rearchitected its flagship VMAX enterprise product line, which is now called PowerMax, to include NVMe support and a built-in machine learning engine. Its XtremIO all-flash array offers native replication for the first time and a lower entry-level price. 

In the server arena, the focus is on speeding customers’ time-to-market with artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies. Dell EMC expanded its PowerEdge portfolio and announced bundled server solutions designed to accelerate AI-driven workloads. 

The company also gave an early look at its PowerEdge MX modular infrastructure, which will be available in the second half of this year.
