Intel to Introduce Datacenter Products and Technologies
Sep 09, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Intel Corp. introduced a portfolio of datacenter products and technologies for cloud service providers.
In a release, the Company noted that the portfolio includes the second generation 64-bit Intel Atom C2000 product family of system-on-chip designs for microservers and cold storage platforms and for entry networking platforms. These new SoCs are the company's first products based on the Silvermont micro-architecture, the new design in its 22nm Tri-Gate SoC process delivering significant increases in performance and energy efficiency, and arrives only nine months after the previous generation.
"As the world becomes more and more mobile, the pressure to support billions of devices and users is changing the very composition of datacenters," said Diane Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of the Datacenter and Connected Systems Group at Intel. "From leadership in silicon and SoC design to rack architecture and software enabling, Intel is providing the key innovations that original equipment manufacturers, telecommunications equipment makers and cloud service providers require to build the datacenters of the future."
Intel also introduced the Intel Ethernet Switch FM5224 silicon.
Intel is delivering 13 models with customized features and accelerators that are optimized for particular lightweight workloads such as entry dedicated hosting, distributed memory caching, static web serving and content delivery to ensure greater efficiency. The designs allow Intel to expand into new markets like cold storage and entry-level networking.
By consolidating three communications workloads - application, control and packet processing - on a common platform, providers now have tremendous flexibility. They will be able to meet the changing network demands while adding performance, reducing costs and improving time-to-market.
Microsoft and Intel announced a collaboration to innovate on Microsoft's next-generation RSA rack design. The goal is to bring even better utilization, economics and flexibility to Microsoft's datacenters.
The Intel Atom C2000 product family is shipping.
