Intel unveils new cloud data centre technologies
Dubai, September 5, 2013
US-based Intel Corporation has launched a portfolio of data centre products and technologies for cloud service providers to support a growing demand for new services and future innovation.
Server, network and storage infrastructure is evolving to better suit an increasingly diverse set of lightweight workloads, creating the emergence of microserver, cold storage and entry networking segments, said a statement.
By optimising technologies for specific workloads, Intel will help cloud providers significantly increase utilisation, drive down costs and provide compelling and consistent experiences to consumers and businesses, it said.
The portfolio includes the second generation 64-bit Intel Atom C2000 product family of system-on-chip (SoC) designs for microservers and cold storage platforms (code named ‘Avoton’) and for entry networking platforms (code named ‘Rangeley’).
These new SoCs are the company’s first products based on the Silvermont micro-architecture, the new design in its leading 22nm Tri-Gate SoC process delivering significant increases in performance and energy efficiency, and arrives only nine months after the previous generation.
Intel has also launched its Ethernet Switch FM5224 silicon which, when combined with the WindRiver Open Network Software suite, brings software defined networking (SDN) solutions to servers for improved density and lower power.
Intel also demonstrated the first operational Intel Rack Scale Architecture (RSA)-based rack with Intel Silicon Photonics Technology in combination with the disclosure of a new MXC connector and ClearCurve optical fiber developed by Corning with requirements from Intel. - TradeArabia News Service
