Dell PowerScale supports the most demanding AI workloads with all-flash NVMe file storage solutions that deliver massive performance and efficiency in a compact form factor.
There are several models used in the generative AI solution architecture, all powered by the PowerScale OneFS operating system and supporting inline data compression and deduplication. The minimum number of PowerScale nodes per cluster is three nodes, and the maximum cluster size is 252 nodes.
PowerScale F900 provides the maximum performance of all-NVMe drives in a cost-effective configuration to address the storage needs of demanding AI workloads. Each node is 2U in height and hosts 24 NVMe SSDs. PowerScale F900 supports TLC or QLC drives for maximum performance. It enables you to scale raw storage from 46 TB to 736 TB per node and up to 186 PB of raw capacity per cluster.
PowerScale F600 includes NVMe drives to provide larger capacity with massive performance in a cost-effective compact 1U form factor to power demanding workloads. The PowerScale F600 supports TLC or QLC drives for maximum performance. Each node allows you to scale raw storage capacity from 15.36 TB to 245 TB and up to 60 PB of raw capacity per cluster.
