As the massive growth of information technology services places increasing demand on the datacenter, Intel India today outlined its strategy to re-architect the underlying infrastructure, allowing companies and end-users to benefit from an increasingly services-oriented, mobile world.
Intel’s global datacenter business, which generates more than $10 billion in revenues annually, develops solutions that help businesses keep pace with the increasing demand for cloud services and for managing data generated from billions of users and connected devices worldwide. Intel’s goal is to re-architect the datacenter to enable a common, software-defined foundation for both datacenters and cloud service providers that span servers, networking, storage and security.
Keeping this goal in mind, a range of products were announced to help drive greater efficiency and flexibility and support a growing demand for new services and future innovation from the enterprises in India. As part of the launch, Intel unveiled Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v2 product family which offers up to 45% greater energy efficiency and 50% higher performance as compared to the previous generation. The other products Intel launched are the Intel® Atom™ C2000 processor family, first based on Silvermont micro-architecture.
Intel also announced 4th gen Intel Core vPro processors offering a range of enhanced capabilities across security, manageability and productivity. Intel® SSD Pro 1500 Series is optimized for the business user offering secured data and more productivity to the user with faster boot and application start times.
This robust pipeline of current and future products and technologies will allow Intel to expand into new segments of the datacenter in India. The role of information technology has evolved from being a way to reduce costs and increase corporate productivity to becoming the means to deliver new services to businesses and consumers.
Datacenters are entering a new era of rapid service delivery and we continue to see significant opportunities for growth across network, storage and servers. In many cases, it requires a new approach to deliver the scale and efficiency required, and today we are unveiling the near and long-term actions to enable this transformation. Through this initiative, we are looking to accelerate Intel’s progress in the enterprise space in India with high performance solutions that address the high performance needs of the fast evolving space. “said Narendra Bhandari, Director, Software and Services Group, Intel Asia Pacific.
National Stock Exchange (NSE), the world’s largest bourse in terms of number of equity trade has been collaborating with Intel to address their huge compute requirement. NSE’s current application ‘PRISM’ was being run on the previous version of Xeon servers and optimization & performance testing was carried out on Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v2 product family.
N Muralidaran, Chief – Special Projects ( NSE) & Director ( NSETECH) said, “The ever increasing want of Exchanges for efficient and high-performance datacenter infrastructure, makes them early adopters of cutting-edge technology advancements. We often closely align our technology rollout with Intel’s new processor releases to meet ever increasing compute needs and it reinforces NSE’s leadership position”. He further added, “For PRISM, the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v2 product family has delivered 1.55X higher throughput than the previous generation. This brings promise for capacity expansion per $ for many other applications too.
