5G Will Transform Industries

Jen Felch, CIO and Chief Digital Officer, Dell Technologies, and Shekar Ayyar, Executive VP, Strategy and Corporate Development & GM, Telco NFV Group, VMWare, were involved in a discussion around 5G and how it can transform industries.

Ayyar said that 5G will transform the industry. In fact, with the radio infrastructure disaggregation, 5G will help industries transform themselves. Felch added that the opportunities for social impact are enormous. They will help extend the reach. 5G and IoT will help achieve these.

Ayyar added that 5G will enable a number of new edge clouds. There needs to be consistent and cohesive management of private, public, telco clouds, etc. Felch agreed, stating that Dell is preparing for all of this. The ramp is going to be steep. There will be further opportunities to analyze these. The corporate is also looking at our network and deploying SD-WAN. Like, our customers and a legacy of infrastructure. We also get to use great technologies developed at Dell.

Building An Autonomous Future

John Roese, President and CTO, Products & Operations, Dell Technologies, noted that the future is where data will flow across various systems. AI-powered experiences are going to make our lives better. We are going to need a stronger application revolution to unlock the new data era. We are also going to see a lot of automation.

Cars will be the first zeta scale private infrastructures of the world. We have the data. We work with global companies. There should be 40 million autonomous vehicles around, and will probably need 7zB of data. We realize that compute, storage, etc., should become cheaper. There will be 1 million storage admins. We are seeing all of this in 5G, infrastructure, healthcare, etc.

We are looking at building an autonomous future. We have to focus on standardization, orchestration and autonomous environments. Automation emerges when the orchestration is well done. We are focused on three things - multi-cloud operational hub, AI-driven automation, and the automated infrastructure that are available everywhere. We need to have best-in-class products. We have now introduced the Dell EMC PowerOne autonomous infrastructure to make deploying, managing and consuming IT easier for organizations.

Imagine being able to do things with a highly intelligent system. Management is done via automation. There is compute, network and storage to follow. We made our products smart. We have a new automation controller in PowerOne. For eg., there will be 98% reduction in manufacturing tasks. It creates new, efficient pools of reliability. you can now understand your portfolio. It also helps in sustainability. We also have this goal of one-to-one recycling. Our customers are the owners of the next data decade where they will disrupt their industries in a major way. Our job is to ensure that nothing stops them from reaching their goals.

Dell Technologies on Demand

Jeff Clarke, Vice Chairman, Dell Technologies, announced Dell Technologies on demand. It is a set of consumption-based and as-a-service offerings on the industry’s broadest infrastructure portfolio that deliver IT with the agility of the cloud, and the control, performance and predictability of the on-premises infrastructure.

As part of this new offering, Dell is also expanding its extensive flexible consumption portfolio to support Dell EMC PowerEdge servers and the new Dell EMC PowerOne autonomous infrastructure system.
