Intel recently launched its new 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors code-named Ice Lake, Intel’s advanced performance datacentre platform. Combined with Intel’s portfolio of Intel Optane persistent memory and storage, Ethernet adapters, FPGAs and optimised software solutions, the new datacentre platform delivers performance and workload optimisations across hybrid-cloud, high-performance computing HPC, networking and intelligent edge applications.
Furthermore, building on over 10 years of delivering solutions, Intel Xeon Scalable processors are supported by more than 500 ready-to-deploy Intel Market Ready and Intel Select Solutions that help to accelerate customer deployments – with more than 80% of the existing Intel Select Solutions portfolio being refreshed to take advantage of 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors.
More and more on-premises datacentres are transforming to cloud-based and hybrid datacentres
Intel is announcing seven new or updated optimised solution reference designs for the datacentre that utilise the latest Intel products and technologies, including 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, with more solutions from the portfolio being updated throughout the year. Intel Select Solutions for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI, Microsoft SQL, Open Cloud, simulation and modeling, NFVI Forwarding Platform and Visual Cloud Delivery Network are being updated, and a new solution, Intel Select Solutions for Virtual Radio Access Networks vRAN, is being introduced.
Ever-increasing data volume also poses challenges in data protection
With emerging technologies and increasing business requirement, the need for and importance of datacentres is growing exponentially. The rising demand has led companies to innovate and evolve rapidly as more and more on-premises datacentres are transforming to cloud-based and hybrid datacentres, which will be the key factors for changing datacentre technologies.
It is critical new datacentre technologies come with robust security solutions
The ever-increasing data volume also poses challenges in data protection. Hence, it is critical that new datacentre technologies come with robust security solutions as organisations advance toward implementing digitalisation.
Intel’s 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor delivers on average 46% increased performance for workloads
Intel’s new 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors come with built-in Intel SGX, which protects sensitive code and data with the smallest potential attack surface within the system. It is also the only datacentre processors with built-In AI; delivering on average 46% increased performance to power the industry’s broadest range of workloads — from the cloud to the network to the intelligent edge.
Lack of skills to handle complexities poses a challenge from a traditional datacentre to a virtual platform
Datacentre migration from conventional set up to cloud-based has become a priority for organisations across industries globally. And despite the rise and adoption of new datacentre technologies, the migration process is one of the biggest challenges. Additionally, the lack of limited skills and knowledge to handle the complexities also poses a challenge in the seamless transition from a traditional datacentre to a virtual platform.

Earlier this year Intel announced the official launch of the new Intel Partner Alliance. The alliance unifies longstanding Intel partner programs, such as Intel Technology Provider, Intel IoT Solutions Alliance and Intel Cloud Insider, into a single, streamlined offering for the full partner ecosystem. The new program is designed to enhance Intel’s relationship with valued partners and together accelerate new market opportunities in an increasingly data-centric world.
Datacentre migration from conventional to cloud-based has become a priority for organisations
Intel recognises that solutions to meet data-centric opportunities are becoming more complex and require a much greater degree of ecosystem collaboration. With the launch of Intel Partner Alliance, every member will find new value, like intelligent matchmaking, that connects them with partners and solutions specifically tailored to their business needs. This program brings together partner programs and partner roles under one umbrella to better facilitate collaboration and advanced solutions for growth.
