IN­TEL’S KEY IN­GRE­DI­ENTS FOR THE MOD­ERN CLOUD

DQ Channels - - Spotlight -

To­mor­rows’ de­mands from the cloud and the net­works that sup­port it can only be a mat­ter of imag­i­na­tion. San­dra Rivera, VP, Data Cen­ter Group at In­tel be­lieves that the net­work will soon have to han­dle over 50 bil­lion de­vices and 2 ZB of data traf­fic. So what we will need is a cloud ready net­work. And SDI will be the foun­da­tion for the most ad­vanced clouds in the world. It makes the de­liv­ery of cloud ser­vices faster and more ef­fi­cient by dy­nam­i­cally al­lo­cat­ing the re­quired com­pute, stor­age and net­work re­sources through in­tel­li­gent soft­ware, care­fully or­ches­trat­ing the de­liv­ery of ap­pli­ca­tions and ser­vices on-de­mand and across many users. Keep­ing in mind emerg­ing needs, In­tel an­nounced Xeon pro­ces­sor E5-2600 v4 prod­uct fam­ily, built on 14nm process tech­nol­ogy, that pro­vides key in­gre­di­ents for SDI in­clud­ing In­tel Re­source Di­rec­tor Tech­nol­ogy, which en­ables cus­tomers to move to fully au­to­mated SDI-based clouds with greater vis­i­bil­ity and con­trol over crit­i­cal shared re­sources like pro­ces­sor caches and main mem­ory. In­tel claims that this re­sults ins in­tel­li­gent or­ches­tra­tion and im­proved uti­liza­tion and ser­vice lev­els. The new prod­uct fam­ily de­liv­ers im­proved per­for­mance for cloud tasks with more than 20 per­cent more cores and cache than the prior gen­er­a­tion , sup­ports faster mem­ory, and in­cludes other in­te­grated tech­nolo­gies for ac­cel­er­at­ing a wide range of server, net­work and stor­age work­loads. Se­cu­rity en­hance­ments like work­load iso­la­tion, se­cu­rity pol­icy en­force­ment and faster cryp­tog­ra­phy have been added to help pro­tect data more ef­fec­tively.

For fast and re­li­able data ac­cess to the cloud, In­tel un­veiled new solid state drives (SSDs) op­ti­mized for the In­tel Xeon pro­ces­sor E5-2600 v4 fam­ily, en­ter­prise stor­age and cloud de­ploy­ments. The In­tel SSD DC P3320 and P3520 Se­ries are the first In­tel SSDs to use the in­dus­try’s high­est den­sity 3D NAND tech­nol­ogy to pro­vide users with a highly ef­fi­cient, dense stor­age so­lu­tion. The DC P3320 of­fers up to a 5-times per­for­mance boost com­pared to SATA-based SSDs4 . The new In­tel SSD DC D3700 and D3600 Se­ries are In­tel’s first dual-port PCI Ex­press SSDs us­ing the Non-Volatile Mem­ory Ex­press (NVMe) pro­to­col. The dual-port de­sign pro­vides crit­i­cal re­dun­dancy and failover, safe­guard­ing against data loss in mis­sion-crit­i­cal stor­age de­ploy­ments. Cus­tomer sys­tems us­ing the D3700 can see up to a 6-times in­crease in per­for­mance over to­day’s dual-port SAS so­lu­tions. San­dra Rivera, VP, Data Cen­ter Group at In­tel
