This solution is based on the Dell Validated Design for AI which is a platform that is jointly engineered by Dell, VMware, and Nvidia. The Dell Validated Design for AI is an enterprise grade platform that is fully validated by Dell, VMware, and Nvidia. The design supports virtualization with GPUs and runs on Dell PowerEdge and VxRail HCI infrastructure. VxRail was selected for Computer Vision due to its ability to scale to support thousands of cameras.
The main components from the Dell Validated Design for AI that are leveraged are:
- VMs - All VMS and CV systems were fully virtualized.
- vGPU - Virtualized GPU capability that is required to process analytic camera streams.
- vSAN - All VMs are protected with vSAN storage.
- vCenter - All system management and operations are performed through VMware vCenter.
