The most important advantages of Intel® technology in the cloud


Decades of innovation and optimization with the world’s leading technology and service providers mean that Intel not only has a deep understanding of business use cases and needs, but also a finely tuned, globally deployed architecture that you can rely on.

Experts in cloud computing optimizations for enterprise workloads

Innovation is increasing rapidly and business-critical enterprise workloads such as VMware, SAP, Microsoft SQL Server, Salesforce, Oracle and data analytics are migrating to the cloud.

Through longstanding relationships with leading ISVs, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and CSPs, Intel works with the cloud ecosystem on a daily basis, developing and optimizing Intel technology to deliver great performance per dollar. This includes working with CSPs to develop special instances such as Microsoft Azure DCsv2 Virtual Machines, which are designed to better support demanding tasks and workloads such as encryption and decryption of data, in-memory databases and data analysis.

Proven consistent performance from the data center to the cloud to the edge

Intel offers a specially designed architecture to deliver consistent performance across a wide range of workloads. This architecture is ubiquitous from the edge to the data center to the cloud. Some platform architectures are only available with very specific CSPs or in limited data centers. But Intel-based instances have the largest and most available footprint of any leading CSP in the world.

Additionally, Intel’s commitment to consistent, predictable improvement in application performance with each new generation of Intel® processors translates into great performance for every dollar spent on cloud services.

Breakthrough performance through software optimizations

Intel spends a lot of time and effort ensuring that its customers get improved performance from their enterprise applications. By optimizing applications, tools, libraries and frameworks, you can get the most out of Intel technology.

The following performance enhancements compare the performance of software optimized for 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors to the unoptimized performance.

30x faster AI inference performance with Intel® Deep Learning Boost and software optimizations and 6x better throughput / $ with Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors compared to a graphics processing unit (GPU) 1

5x improved throughput of automatic speech recognition2

3x improved rendering throughput3

Half cores for the same performance at the lowest total cost

Often times, cloud cost assessment tools are determined by instance costs alone; but this approach can be misleading. Many factors influence the real cost of the cloud infrastructure. For example, many corporate ISVs charge per core. Choosing a server node with fewer cores but performing similarly to a node with a higher number of cores can reduce software licensing costs. Intel® server platforms offer excellent virtual machine (VM) density, which means you can do more with less. In addition to the number of cores, there are other aspects of the total cost that must be taken into account, the ease of migration, the compatibility and the risks of vendor retention.

The Intel® Cloud Optimizer tool helps optimize the cloud, container, and VMware infrastructure to provide recommendations for public cloud instances with the pricing and performance characteristics required for your specific workload.

Trusted hardware for cloud-based enterprise workloads

Intel technology is trusted by all major CSPs, as evidenced by the fact that leading ISVs such as Oracle, SAP and VMware certify their cloud environments exclusively or primarily on Intel

Intel has co-developed and developed cloud technologies since the public cloud began more than 15 years ago. that the co-engineering collaboration with the world’s leading CSPs continues to this day. With millions of Intel CPUs running in the cloud across all major CSPs, you can rely on seamless migrations when moving your workloads from on-premise to the cloud, from one cloud instance to another, or from cloud to cloud move.

Easy manageability for cloud environments

Popular hybrid cloud stacks such as AWS Outposts, Azure Stack, Anthos from Google Cloud and VMware Cloud are optimized for the Intel architecture. These stacks provide intuitive management functions that can lower the barriers to cloud adoption.

Intel technology solutions solve real vulnerabilities and business challenges on site, over communication networks, at the edge and in the public cloud. This penetration enables companies to open up new business opportunities, to accelerate and modernize their business or to migrate to the public cloud with ease.
