Dell is working with Nvidia to expand its AI Factory infrastructure service, adding support for new software and server solutions.

Unlike other infrastructure services, Dell’s AI Factory is designed solely to support high-intensity AI-focused workloads.

Announced at GTC earlier this year, the Dell AI Factory is now been extended to include support for liquid cooling cooling servers, including the new PowerEdge XE9680L.

Unveiled at Dell Technologies World in Las Vegas, the XE9680Ls feature eight of Nvidia’s new flagship Blackwell GPUs.

Liquid cooling is designed to keep heat away from hardware. Businesses using servers like the XE9680L to power their AI workloads get an efficiency boost on large-scale AI deployments as the liquid keeps the GPUs cool, letting them run at peak levels for longer.

Dell’s new XE9680L servers will be available in the second half of 2024.

“Organizations are moving quickly to capture the AI opportunity, which is why our collaboration with Nvidia is so important,” said Michael Dell, Dell Technologies’ founder and CEO. “Our expansion of the Dell AI Factory with Nvidia continues our joint mission: we’re making it easy for organizations to implement AI so they can move boldly into this next technological revolution.”

Nvidia is also powering a tool in Dell’s AI Factory that enables businesses to personalize and deploy their own digital assistants. The Dell Generative AI Solution for Digital Assistants lets users design and test custom AI assistants before full deployment.

Also being made available through Dell’s AI Factory is NativeEdge, an orchestration platform that automates Nvidia’s AI Enterprise software. Businesses can use NativeEdge to optimize Nvidia’s AI software for specific use cases.

Nvidia’s suite of AI microservices, including Nim for model optimization, are also available for users to customize and fine-tune models for industry-specific applications.

“Generative AI requires a new type of computing infrastructure – an AI factory that produces intelligence,” said Jensen Huang, Nvidia’s founder and CEO. “Together, Nvidia and Dell are providing the world’s industries with a full-stack offering, including computing, networking and software, that drives the copilots, coding assistants, virtual customer service agents and industrial digital twins of the digital enterprise.”
