Driving Innovation with Open and Secure Foundations
Accelerating Intel’s leading-edge hardware capabilities, our systems software and firmware technologies help developers generate new business opportunities and growth by providing them with open and secure foundations on which to build.
Virtualization + Orchestration + Operating Systems
Our partnership with the system software ecosystem is unmatched. Billions of lines of code and all major enterprise and operating system software stacks are optimized for Intel® architecture through our many co-engineering engagements with ecosystem partners.
See how Intel delivered substantial performance benefits for the Azure* virtual machines based on the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. The work is highlighted by use of new Crypto-NI instructions used to accelerate commonly deployed web workloads.
Increased internet use means an unprecedented opportunity to harness the latest technology breakthroughs. This article explains this new era of distributed intelligence, powered by progressive web applications, web APIs, hardware accelerators, and other sophisticated technologies.
The first Chromebook* notebook computer with Intel® vPro® platform technology is a major milestone towards the expansion of the Chromebook Enterprise segment. This blog describes new software features, capabilities, and their implementation.
As more sensitive customer data moves to the cloud, the cloud infrastructure requires new and improved security. Intel created Cloud Hypervisor, a new virtual machine monitor with minimal device emulation, a streamlined cloud feature set to ensure ease of use, and with security in mind.
Explore the steps to using Intel® Software Guard Extensions on 3rd generation Intel® Xeon® platforms. This solution uses hardware-based memory encryption to store the service mesh private key, with all code signing done in the encrypted enclave.
Learn about resources for Kubernetes* workloads: storage I/O bandwidth, memory bandwidth, and CPU cache. See how to prioritize and deprioritize use of these resources, and the approach to include these and similar resources under the extended umbrella of Kubernetes QoS.
Android* apps and games continue to explode in popularity on Chromebook* notebook computers. See how Android 11 running in a virtual machine brings features, security, hardware acceleration, and developer tools to enhance power and performance on Intel® platforms.
The gaming industry is being disrupted by games hosted in the cloud and at the edge. This requires a best-in-class software stack, CPU and GPU, and the whole stack integrated and optimized for game streaming. This blog illustrates Intel's contribution to the cloud gaming ecosystem.
See how Intel's efforts to enable SQL Server* for Intel® QAT addresses key problems in database backups by decreasing backup time using special-purpose hardware that enables higher compression ratios, and reduces the storage cost of maintaining backups.
Video streaming services are a key use case for Chrome OS. Delivering content in Ultra HD 4K and HDR provides consumers with a more immersive experience. This blog describes how hardware-based DRM (HWDRM) has been enabled for Chromebooks built with Intel® architecture.
Our open software foundation unleashes innovation across architectures. Developers working on bare metal get reduced complexity, improved quality, and ease of use. They also get secure, modular access to expose the latest hardware features to differentiate and scale their complex solutions.
Intel is driving the USF initiative with industry open specifications to simplify and scale firmware development across compute architectures and bootloaders from edge to cloud with improved firmware security. This helps deliver verifiable components across firmware and software supply chains from hardware to operating systems.
Test silicon without silicon. Learn how the pre-silicon validation platform offerings from Intel help original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and independent BIOS vendors (IBV) catch more bugs, speed up development timelines, reduce costs, and ultimately deliver better PC experiences, faster.
