Using its 'Cloud-in-a-Box' demonstration tool, Intel today showed technologies that will deliver a secure, energy efficient cloud that can be deployed fast.
in Australia its latest cloud technologies with "the world's smallest cloud data
center" demonstration tool Pint-sized but potent, the 'Cloud-in-a-Box' system is
basically two 1U servers in a package that fits into a common rolling suitcase,
powered by Intel Xeon processors.
The servers are used to demonstrate a variety of Intel technologies, starting
with the latest advances in the Xeon processor family, including support for
hardware-based encryption (Intel AES New Instructions) and Intel's Trusted
Execution Technology, which focuses on security at the hypervisor level and
below. Intel's hardware Virtualization Technology is also heavily featured, as
well as Intel Intelligent Power Node Manager, which can be used with operating
system tools and allows data center managers to set a power budget for a server,
enabling denser deployments.
Intel Xeon processor family includes the Intel Xeon Processor 5600 series,
32nm CPUs that deliver up to 60 percent greater performance than the
previous-generation processor and the Intel Xeon processor E7 family. The
Intel Xeon processor E7-8800/4800/2800 product families build on Intel's
previous generation of server processors designed for high-end computing
applications, including business intelligence, real-time data analytics and
Intel has also developed a range of software to help address security and
identify issues for the cloud. This software includes the Intel Expressway
Access 360, a solution suite designed to control the entire lifecycle of cloud
access by providing single sign-on, provisioning, strong authorization and
The Intel Expressway Gateway Service is also used to abstract, secure, and
simplify services and delivers a set of features tailor made to integrate,
mediate, and scale services in a dynamically changing enterprise application
In addition, the Intel Cloud Builders program brings together hardware and
software makers to provide practical guidance on how to make clouds simpler to
deploy, use and share in an open and secure environment. Intel Cloud Builders
also serves as a portal for information on cloud research and as a community
where solution architects can consult on best practices for the adoption and
enhancement of cloud solutions.
