Today's storage systems need to keep pace not only with the explosion of data volume, but also need to accommodate a wider range of data types and services than ever before. Companies are buried in information that's siloed across business units and by different functions - in customer service systems, pricing systems, in supply chains. Complicating matters, critical information often resides outside companies in unstructured forms - like social media conversations. Our collective challenge today is effectively mining business value out of the huge amount of newly useful data, with even more coming fast in all areas of IT storage: block, file, object, and big data. If you want to stay competitive, you'll likely have to tackle some data storage scaling projects soon. Newer approaches to large-scale storage can help.
Smarter cloud technology offers businesses additional value through elastic hybrid cloud models that combine the advantages of private and public clouds into a single, integrated environment. With hybrid cloud, enterprises have the flexibility, choice, and easy scalability to optimize service delivery to meet their diverse needs and optimize resources for even greater efficiency and agility. Workloads move dynamically between clouds, and services can be spun up quickly to capitalize on new business opportunities.
Intel is committed to simplifying the path to delivering hybrid cloud services by developing the foundational technology that powers high-performance, energy-efficient, highly available, and secure cloud environments. We are working closely with leading partners to accelerate cloud computing solutions that take advantage of our latest platform capabilities to make the cloud easier to deploy for a range of workloads through initiatives such as Intel® Cloud for All. And Intel is extending virtualization from individual servers to the entire data center via software-defined infrastructure, providing a critical on-ramp for more scalable hybrid clouds.
