By CIOReview | Monday, April 4, 2016

SANTA CLARA, CA: Businesses are in haste to grow and expand their growth by delivering services faster in the competitive market place, which can be achieved by implementing modern cloud system. Intel corporation, a maker of semiconductor chips— Bluetooth chipsets, Flash memory, Microprocessors, Mother-board chipsets, Network Interface cards, Mobile Phones, Solid State Drives (SSD), Central Processing Units (CPU) presented a range of technologies, investments and industrial collaboration which makes deploying clouds easier for businesses.

Most of the businesses are investing on Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) to lower their complexity and time in order to improve flexibility, and lessen hardware dependability. Diane Bryant, SVP and GM, Intel, Data Center Group comments, "Enterprises want to benefit from the efficiency and agility of cloud architecture and on their own terms - using the public cloud offerings, deploying their own private cloud, or both." Cloud is mounted upon the SDI plinth, enabling faster delivery of cloud based services, improving efficiency by orchestrating compute, storage and network resources through intelligent software.

Focusing to ease cloud deployment and execution, Intel brings-in high-performance technology:  Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 Series,  Intel SSD DC P3320 and P3520 Series, Intel SSD DC D3700 and D3600 Series. Intel’s Xeon processor has upto 22 cores and provides 55MB of cache, boosting the performance and enables customers to set foot in a fully automated SDI-based cloud system. Further, Intel’s SSDs have enhanced the processor’s enterprise storage and deployment capabilities. The DC P3320 and P3520 Series is powered by 3D NAND technology offering 5-times more performance as compared to the legacy SATA-based SSD’s; it also optimizes the latency of network. Further, Intel SSD DC D3700 and D3600 Series, a dual-port SSD which uses Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) Protocol to allow SSDs to make effective utilization of the High-Speed Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) bus in a computer. The D3700 series SSD can provide upto 6-times increased performance when compared with the current dual-port.

Apart from improving the technology, Intel extends its hands with other industries to drive easy-to-deploy cloud solutions and develop standards. Intel collaborates with CoreOS and Mirantis to bring open source technologies—Enterprise OpenStack platform, which lets users to deploy virtual-machine based applications. Alongside, Intel joins hands with VMware to speed the cloud deployment and improvise cybersecurity. Intel also builds a cloud application testing centre by joining with Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
