Intel is increasing its focus on cloud computing by offering new set of chips that will aid businesses and service providers create more efficient cloud computing platforms.
In an event held in San Francisco last March 31, the chip-maker unveiled the Xeon server chips that will speed up the cloud and it includes two faster solid-states drives. In addition to the new chip, they also revealed new and enhanced technologies including faster storage and expanded partnerships to make cloud computing easier for many more companies.

The announcements are part of Intel's 'Cloud for All' initiative. It aims to develop industry-wide standards for easy-to-deploy cloud technology and to encourage the rollout of new cloud platforms.
“Enterprises want to benefit from the efficiency and agility of cloud architecture and on their own terms -- using the public cloud offerings, deploying their own private cloud, or both,” says Diane Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's Data Center Group.
The new 27 processors belong to the Xeon E5-2600 v4. It offers 44 percent better performance, 24 percent faster message rate and more efficiency. They are based on Intel's Broadwell microarchitecture, smaller compared to previous chips with only 14nm. It comes with 22 cores and offers up to 44 threads per core. Its transistor count is 7.2 billion. The processors will deliver improved server utilization and better virtualization performance, including reducing virtual machine (VM) downtime by as much as 70 percent.
Moreover, Intel is also releasing new SSDs: SSD DC D3700 and D3600 Series. The solid-state drives are designed to offer critical redundancy and failover to ensure safeguards against data loss in mission-critical storage deployments.
To promote the cloud computing, Intel is using two open source program. OpenStack is included, which comes in commercial versions and is seen as a dashboard for operating resources in a data center. The other one is using containers.
