Dell Technologies renews edge efforts beyond the data center

Dell Technologies has recently announced a number of edge innovations across its infrastructure and PC portfolio. The latest additions to Dell’s portfolio are intended for a variety of applications, from rugged and remote locations to retail stores and factory floors.

The new products are designed to help companies simplify deployments and capture more value from data generated and processed outside the traditional data center and public cloud.

Among the newly released products and updates is Dell’s EMC VxRail satellite nodes, designed to bring VxRail’s operational model and efficiencies to edge sites with a reduced infrastructure footprint.

The solution can reportedly automate daily operations, perform health monitoring, and lifecycle management from a centralized location without the need for local technical and specialized resources.

“The edge is technology’s next great frontier, and it’s all around us, everywhere from retail to manufacturing, smart cities, and hospitals,” explained Michael Dell, chairman, and chief executive officer at Dell Technologies.

The company also renewed its partnership with Litmus to validate designs for manufacturing edge solutions and enable companies to improve product quality as well as save costs thanks to real-time data analytics and centralized device management. For reference, Litmus recently partnered with Google Cloud to provide its purpose-built platform for collecting, processing, and analyzing data at the edge from industrial machines.

“We’re innovating simple solutions, so organizations can analyze data closer to where it’s created, make faster decisions, improve outcomes and drive progress,” Dell added.

Another product released by the firm in its latest announcement is the EMC Edge Gateway, which features 5G capabilities, a 9th generation Intel Core processor, and can withstand temperature ranges from minus 4 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

“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,” commented Matthew Eastwood, senior vice president at IDC.

To this end, Dell has also recently updated its EMC Streaming Data Platform (SDP) to add enhanced GPU optimization and enable streaming video ingestion in a lower latency and frame rate environment.

“The Dell Technologies edge portfolio spanning infrastructure, PC and services helps organizations of all sizes make sense of their data,” Eastwood concluded.
