Intel® Service Assurance Administrator (Intel® SAA)

Enterprise IT managers need a viable solution that supports running internal workloads on virtualized and cloud infrastructure with SLA guarantees. But it can be challenging to start a private cloud initiative that serves internal enterprise customers. Cloud infrastructure—both physical and virtualized—must be enhanced with service assurance administration software tools to run enterprise workloads efficiently.

Intel® Service Assurance Administrator (Intel® SAA) enables IT managers and service providers to confidently create multitenant environments designed to meet performance criteria and implement service level agreements. Intel SAA monitoring, remediation, reporting, and management capabilities bring the trust attestation, performance, availability, and portability enterprises require.

Infrastructure provisioning


With Intel SAA, IT managers know that the infrastructure is running the designated hypervisor, and is compliant with IT regulations. This solution provides the flexibility to increase vendor choices, potentially reduce cost, and increase access to innovation.
