Dell Native Edge: Key to Unlock AI Innovation at the Edge

Dell Native Edge

The strategic value of edge is more important than ever in a time when artificial intelligence is having a profound impact on society. Dell Technologies is pleased to announce partnerships with Microsoft, NVIDIA, and Service Now that will improve enterprises use of edge AI. A new version of Dell Native Edge, dell’s edge operations software platform, is also being released. It provides a complete, virtualized end-to-end solution at the edge, making it easier to design, launch, and scale AI applications there.

Enhanced Dell Native Edge Partnerships to Streamline AI Application Implementation at the Periphery

Dell is growing dell’s strategic alliance with NVIDIA to enable and accelerate AI applications everywhere that customers need them, as part of the most recent announcements about Dell AI Factory with NVIDIA. Since NVIDIA AI Enterprise is an end-to-end software platform that includes NVIDIA NIM and other microservices for the creation and deployment of production-grade applications, Dell Native Edge is the first edge orchestration platform that automates its delivery.

This partnership integrates NVIDIA AI tools and SDKs with NativeEdge, Dell’s edge operations software platform, for NVIDIA AI Enterprise customers. They’ve got you covered with new deployment blueprints that automate the distribution of NVIDIA AI frameworks to edge devices and beyond, whether it’s video analytics with NVIDIA Metropolis, voice and translation with NVIDIA Riva, or optimised inferencing at the edge with NVIDIA NIM.

Powered by NVIDIA-accelerated computation, this NativeEdge technology makes it simple for developers and IT operators to create and implement AI solutions automatically at the edge on NativeEdge Endpoints. They’re only getting started, but this innovation covers a broad spectrum of use cases, including visual analytics, industrial automation, and personalised retail experiences.

The first closed-loop integration for the Edge in the industry is created by Dell Native Edge and ServiceNow

By integrating with ServiceNow‘s Now Platform, Dell Native Edge expands on dell’s partner ecosystem and streamlines the development and deployment of AI applications at the edge. With the help of this integration, companies can effectively expand their IT operations from the main data centre to the edge. It also provides an automated edge management solution that can be used for operations starting on Day 1 and continuing until Day 2 plus. Dell’s alliance will streamline the orchestration, management, and workflow of edge computing resources through closed-loop automation, resulting in more secure, agile, and efficient operations and service models for edge workloads, including artificial intelligence, in many industries.

Using Dell Native Edge with Azure Arc to Accelerate Edge Innovation

With the release of Dell Native Edge’s Azure Arc enabling automation, the edge’s pace is further accelerated. The goal of this new solution is to strengthen edge security and optimise the Azure user experience. The integration’s main goals are to improve edge AI capabilities, streamline edge operations, and offer all-encompassing security using Zero Trust security principles. Customers may easily incorporate Azure services into their environments thanks to NativeEdge’s automation of Azure Arc enablement, which pushes Azure’s cloud advantages such as automation and quick deployment to the limit. Lastly, NativeEdge leverages Azure Arc to streamline customer experience through the creation of carefully crafted deployment blueprints and the deployment of Azure IoT Operations on Kubernetes, for example, simplifying the client experience.

Sustaining Growth in the Sector ISV Ecosystem

Dell have launched six new NativeEdge solutions for ISVs servicing the manufacturing, retail, and digital city industries in an effort to improve business outcomes and edge use cases. Specifically, by offering a 360-degree operational view for city planning, a new Unified Operations Centre with Aveva solution improves data management and citizen services. Using Astrikos AI, Dell Native Edge, and Aveva’s experience, it integrates multiple city systems and provides a safe, data-driven method for optimising infrastructure and urban management.

Enhancements to Dell Native Edge Boost Security, Scalability, and Performance of Edge Applications

Dell are pleased to announce the availability of a new version of Dell Native Edge that offers improved speed, scalability, and security through application deployment on bare-metal containers. Dell is providing new tools (such a Visual Studio Code plugin) to assist clients in developing application integrations and are introducing REST APIs for Dell Native Edge to integrate into DevOps workflows. Dell is now selling both NativeEdge software and NativeEdge Endpoints as a single monthly subscription with Dell APEX, offering an OpEx model for consumption, in response to client demand.

Furthermore, Dell has increased the support for edge infrastructure with NativeEdge Endpoints, which include additional PowerEdge servers, such as the recently released PowerEdge T160 Server, and Dell Precision workstations. Not to be overlooked is the new PowerEdge T160. It is perfect for small places like retail businesses because it is only 17L, 42% smaller than its predecessor2.

Introducing New Edge Services: Encouraging Edge Transformation

In conclusion, Dell is introducing two new Edge Services: Infrastructure and Application Design Services for Edge and ProConsult Advisory Services for Edge. Experts at Dell Services will evaluate your existing situation, develop an edge plan to get you there, and design an edge environment that will optimise productivity, ROI, and efficiency.
