Benefits of the Advanced Technology Sandbox

The Latest Intel® Technology

Build, test and develop using the latest Intel® Technology and cutting-edge hardware, even before it is publicly launched.

Improve Co-Development Across Geographies

Directly access high-value, application-specific servers and collaborate with geographically distributed development teams.

Test and Develop Services Faster

Trained IT staff manage the basics like hardware asset inventory and build-out of prototype boards.

Secure, Low-Level Access

Get multiple levels of security that limit physical access to hardware and development platforms.

How Does It Work?

Our Intel® technology team will work with you, as an invited guest of the Advanced Technology Sandbox, on a one-to-one basis to set up and access your unique environment. We will discuss the scope of your project, recommend an initial environment approach, and help you get started. We’ll stay connected with you throughout your project to make sure you are taking advantage of the Advanced Technology Sandbox to its fullest potential.

You and your project team can access your private environment via standard and secure web browser and other remote development and connection technologies. The hardware environment is designed to support using your software stack and DevOps processes. The physical lab location is in Portland, Oregon USA, but may expand to other global locations in the future. Secure, virtual access to the lab is provided with 4 week x.509 certificates, and new certificates can be issued if longer access is needed. Lab access is available for your own workload testing or for testing a specific environment for your customer.

Who Can Participate?

All Intel® Cloud Insider Program members worldwide are eligible to apply. The Advanced Technology Sandbox is ideal for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) who want to test workloads on the latest technologies without having to purchase and configure the system. It can be valuable to test new workloads, compare performance between generations of hardware, and test isolated customer workload performance. Priority for access approval will be given to CSPs evaluating new hardware technologies, workloads requiring performance, new service testing, and CSPs evaluating hardware for expansion plans, among others.
