Intel Launches Cloud-Based Data Center Platforms; Diane Bryant Comments

IntelLogo EbizIntel has introduced a new portfolio of microprocessors and switch devices that seek to help cloud service providers address energy and efficiency issues in data centers.

Atom C2000 features system-on-chip technology intended for microservers, cold storage systems and entry-level networking and works to reduce a chip’s power consumption by up to six times, Intel said Wednesday.

Diane Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s datacenter and connected systems group, said the company develops technology to assist cloud service providers and telecommunications equipment makers in building data centers.

The Ethernet FM5224 silicon is designed to connect network switches to as many as 64 microservers and works to improve rack density when combined with the WindRiver open network software, according to the company.

Intel recently demonstrated a rack scale architecture system that contains silicon photonics technology as well as ClearCurve optical fiber and MXC connector.
