Dell EMC announced Ready Architecture initiative in a November 2018 blog post. It has moved on a tad with turnkey RA systems built by, and sold through, Dell EMC and Nvidia US channel partners, who can add further components. 

They can also scale compute and storage independently in this RA design.

The systems are initially available in the Americas from  FusionStorm/Computacenter, Insight, Presidio, Sirius and WWT.

Target application areas include genomics, precision medicine, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD), video analytics and content enrichment, fraud detection/prevention and other AI workloads.

Ready Architecture systems are an upgrade for the earlier deep learning Ready Solution which paired the PowerEdge C4140 server with Nvidia Tesla V100 GPUs, all-flash Isilon storage and Dell EMC networking.
