The Dell Validated Design for AI is a multipurpose platform focused on the display and analysis of CCTV video. The architecture uses platform components from Dell, VMware, and Nvidia that are widely used by IT organizations around the world. This solution adds additional value to organizations that want to host a curated and validated set of video management processing and GPU accelerated analytics engines on a common platform.
This design guide covers a selected set of important computer vision workloads that are essential to the safe and efficient management of airports. This release is intended to demonstrate the feasibility and value of using a common platform for all transportation computer vision workloads that both serves the needs of operational IT and is also well known to organizational IT decision-makers.
This Dell Validated Design is based on a VxRail GPU optimized HCI platform leveraging virtually provisioned GPU computer resources that are used for video inferencing and visualization. Our purpose in offering this solution is to help organizations shift from an appliance-per-application-based approach to a common virtualized approach with the simplicity of a single hyperconverged compute and storage management for many applications.
VMware vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) is a feature that can improve application service levels by guaranteeing appropriate resources to virtual machines Including deploying new capacity to a cluster without service disruption. DRS allows system administrators to take advantage of the intelligent placement of VMs for all three applications across the VxRail cluster that enhanced the overall system reliability and cluster resource usage. Staff responsible for Day 2 operations also benefit during planned and unplanned operations through the use of affinity and anti-affinity rules with DRS to maintain the most resilant configurations and maximum uptime.
