Dell XL is a self-sustained consortium of computing centers that employ large-scale Dell systems. With the participation of Dell and Dell partners, the consortium members meet twice a year to exchange technology information and cooperate on projects to enhance the scalability of cluster computing.
Objectives of the Consortium:
- Centers can offer suggestions, alternatives, and raise issues and concerns regarding Dell product configurations, support and software tools.
- Dell can present roadmaps, future directions, and alternative courses, and receive valuable feedback from its largest HPC customer base.
- Member centers can collaborate and share experiences, as well as discuss center-derived solutions and alternative approaches to issues that arise with various Dell configurations and peripheral combinations.
- Invited vendors can discuss HPC solutions jointly with consortium members and Dell.
