Intel and its Vision of the Cloud

Intel and its Vision of the Cloud

Intel and India have both featured in previous articles. Now, both of them came together at the “Intel Cloud Summit 2011” in Mumbai which covered Intel Cloud Builder(s) Program of reference architectures (See: Exploring the Intel Cloud Builder Community – Opportunities and Challenges in Asia )and the Intel Open Data Center (ODC) Initiative. The summit also outlined the company’s Cloud 2015 vision that is based on a three-point strategy focused on deep engagements with IT and service providers, delivering products that align to user requirements, and proven solutions via Intel Cloud Builders. In addition to Intel, the event was attended by partners such as Microsoft, Dell and Fujitsu.

Kimberly S Stevenson, VP IT, GM IT Global Operations and Services, Intel, said, “Cloud computing is a key area of innovation for Intel and one of Intel IT’s top objective for the year 2012. Cloud is opening up new windows of opportunities for Indian companies both from global as well as domestic opportunity stand point.”

The key focus should now be on developing the ecosystem and it should include developing talent for cloud development, connecting start up ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) with large system integrators, enabling start ups on the cloud market places and finally, influencing government policies to become cloud friendly in the near future, this ecosystem together with Indian capabilities of exporting business models will provide the right mix to leverage opportunities created by cloud,” she added.

Stevenson also spoke about how cloud computing had helped Intel improve its own operations. “Cloud is a very important technology shift that will change the way businesses run. We have netted $9 million in net savings from our internal cloud effort which includes benefits from automated provisioning of servers and reduced costs,” she said.

R Ravichandran, Director, Sales, Intel South Asia said, “There are three focus areas for Intel in 2012: Client aware, Federated cloud, and Automated. Intel wants to create new standards like Client aware wherein websites will sense the device on which they are being viewed and reformat their appearance on the fly for that screen. This will improve the user’s surfing experience, irrespective of what device he uses.”

Accelerated adoption and usage of cloud solutions across large enterprises, SMB’s and government has lead to the development of a robust cloud tail in India and to balance the play many managed services providers, telcos, data centre hosting companies and the local solution providers are actively building up cloud based solution delivery capabilities. Cloud has not only increased the flexibility for end customers but also increased the choice of products and services for customers,” he added.
