Dell Technologies is collaborating with Meta to make it easy for Dell customers to deploy Meta’s Llama 2 models on premises with Dell’s generative AI (GenAI) portfolio of IT infrastructure, client devices and professional services.
“Generative AI deployments can span multiple locations and we see many organizations prioritizing on-premises solutions – given critical considerations related to data privacy and security of IP, as well as the impact of data gravity,” said Chris Kelly, senior vice president, Data Center Sales, Asia Pacific and Japan, Dell Technologies. “The integration of Meta’s Llama 2 models into Dell’s generative AI portfolio will help organizations accelerate their digital transformation, enhancing how they engage with customers, employees and the market more broadly to turn valuable insights into action.”
“We at Dell, are committed to developing technologies that improve the IT infrastructure with Large Language Models (LLMs). Dell Technologies supports Generative AI work on LLMs for core innovation, prioritizing on-premises solutions. We are focusing on streamlining the controls related to personal and confidential data, regulation, IPR, etc. This collaboration with Meta simplifies the on-premises AI environment and Generative AI deployments spanning across locations-in the public cloud and on-premises,” said Srinivaschary T, Lead- Solution Architect, Dell Technologies India.
Open-source GenAI fuels innovation on premises
The collaboration simplifies the on-premises AI environment by bringing together Dell’s top-selling infrastructure portfolio and the Llama 2 family of AI models. Customers can accelerate their GenAI efforts on premises in a traditional data center or at edge locations. Dell has integrated Meta’s Llama 2 models into its system sizing tools to help guide customers to the right solution to power their Llama 2 based AI efforts.
The Dell Validated Design for Generative AI with Meta’s Llama 2 provides pre-tested and proven Dell infrastructure, software and services to streamline deployment and management of on-premises projects. With fully documented deployment and configuration guidance, organizations can get their GenAI infrastructure up and running more quickly and operate Llama 2 with more predictability.
With Meta’s Llama 2 and the breadth of the Dell Generative AI Solutions technology and services portfolio, organizations of all sizes have access to more reliable tools to deliver GenAI solutions from desktops to core data centers, edge locations and public clouds.
