One Minute Misconceptions
The Intel® One Minute Misconceptions video series debunks common misconceptions around hybrid cloud.
Agility Means Public Cloud or Does It?
Actor/musician/geek Janina Gavankar has Bill Giard of Intel set the record straight on hybrid cloud agility in this One-Minute Misconception.
Data-led organizations stand to gain huge benefits from combining their private and public cloud environments. Many common concerns are easily resolved.
Do Startups Need Hybrid Cloud Security?
Actor and tech-fiend Janina Gavankar
Complying with regulations around data protection and security can be a challenge when you’re a small organization trying to meet strict regulatory demands with limited resources. A hybrid cloud approach can give you the flexibility to split your data and controls across private and public environments.
What Are the Drivers for Hybrid Cloud Adoption?
Bill Giard of Intel and Bryant Eadon of StrongArm discuss the drivers and barriers for hybrid cloud adoption in One-Minute Misconceptions, A Few Minutes More.
Learn about the road to hybrid cloud success for hybrid cloud environments and how the four most common “barriers” can be turned into success drivers.

Hybrid Cloud Benefits
Private Cloud Benefits
Private Cloud Benefits
Rely on a private cloud for dedicated, highly-available, and highly-secure workload performance when you need to maintain control, meet compliance, and retain business continuity.
Public Cloud Benefits
Public Cloud Benefits
Leverage cloud infrastructure from flexible, off-premises service providers to quickly expand compute resources, leverage skilled talent and add new capabilities for IT and DevOps.
Building the Future Together
Intel collaborates with key industry partners to deliver edge-to-cloud solutions in compute, analytics and AI. Find out more about how we are optimizing software, services, and platforms.
Windows Server* 2016 empowers the advanced data center with software-defined compute, storage, and network capabilities that are elastic and cost-effective. It’s optimized for Intel's technologies to deliver great performance, optimization, efficiency, and scalability.
Broadening cloud services and emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Virtual Reality (VR) are creating demand for workload-optimized, efficient, and agile services. It’s creating vast opportunity for Cloud Service Providers (CSP) who use advanced Intel platform technologies and programs.

Per node 4X higher integer throughput performance: estimate based on SPECrate*2017_int_base on Intel internal platforms: 1x node, 2x Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2690, 128GB total memory, 16 slots / 8 GB/ 1600MT/s DDR3 RDIMM, Benchmark: SPEC CPU2017 V1.2, Compiler: Intel® C Compiler IC17 update 2, Optimized libraries / versions: IC18.0_20170901, Other Software: MicroQuill* SMART HEAP. uCode: 713, OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 7.4, Kernel: 3.10.0-693.11.6.el7.x86_64 x86_64, Score 65.5 vs. 1x Node, 2x Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8180 processor, 384GB total memory, 12 slots / 32 GB / 2666 MT/s DDR4, Benchmark software: SPEC CPU* 2017, Compiler: Intel® C Compiler IC18 OEM, Optimized libraries: AVX512, ucode:0x043, Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 7.4, 3.10.0-693.11.6.el7.x86_64, Score: 281. Cost reduction scenarios described are intended as examples of how a given Intel- based product, in the specified circumstances and configurations, may affect future costs and provide cost savings. Circumstances will vary. Intel does not guarantee any costs or cost reduction.
Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more complete information visit: http://www.intel.com/benchmarks. The benchmark results may need to be revised as additional testing is conducted. The results depend on the specific platform configurations and workloads utilized in the testing, and may not be applicable to any particular user's components, computer system or workloads. The results are not necessarily representative of other benchmarks and other benchmark results may show greater or lesser impact from mitigations.
