Dell Technologies is unveiling solutions and partnerships designed to extract more value from data at the edge. The new offerings are part of the company’s edge strategy to deliver fully integrated technologies that allow workloads to run and be managed across multiple clouds and applications.
Edge devices serve as a growing source of data. Gartner predicts more than 50% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside the datacentre or the cloud by 2022. Dell Technologies is leading the shift to the edge – the next technology frontier – by building on its proven distributed computing capabilities, scale and supply chain.
“Data is the currency of the digital world, and it’s time for customers to take it to the bank,” said Jeff Boudreau, president and general manager, Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell Technologies. “The edge is quickly rivalling data centers and public clouds as the location where organizations are gaining valuable insights. By putting compute, storage, and analytics where data is created, we can deliver those data insights in real time and create new opportunities for businesses.”
New solutions and partnerships include –
- Dell EMC Streaming Data Platform: An upgraded Dell EMC Streaming Data Platform (SDP) offers powerful, real-time analytics at the edge. With a smaller footprint, SDP is ideal for capturing, storing and analyzing streaming data in real-time at the edge. An amusement park customer is using SDP to send alerts to staff when a ride needs maintenance. The park can quickly evaluate and fix the attraction instead of waiting until it requires costly repairs.
- Dell Technologies manufacturing edge solutions: The Dell Technologies Manufacturing Edge Reference Architecture with PTC helps manufacturing companies derive insights from workstations, computers, mobile devices and other endpoints within the manufacturing environment. With access to edge data in one place, companies can increase production line reliability, reduce operational costs and make more informed real-time decisions.
It offers a high-availability edge framework as-a-Service, so companies can virtualise and containerise applications, removing complexity and saving time. Manufacturing customers get a consistent cloud experience and pay only for what they use.
“PTC solutions help companies transform the way they engineer, manufacture, and service products across the entire lifecycle and the edge has become a new frontier for innovation,” said Jonathan Kateman, Senior VP, M&A & Technology Partnerships, PTC. “With the Dell Technologies validated solution for manufacturing, customers are empowered to get the most out of their Industrial IoT environments.”
