At the Intel Developer Forum in Shenzhen, China, developers are getting an inside look at the work Intel is doing with a broad range of partners and customers to enable more-efficient, automated and agile data centers.
In her keynote address at the event, Diane Bryant, senior VP and general manager for the Intel Data Center Group, highlighted examples of these technology collaborations:
- Relying on a computing foundation that includes servers based on Intel® Xeon® processors, the eBay-like Ali Taobao service from Alibaba Group celebrated its biggest-ever shopping day in 2013: a whopping $5.7 billion spent in the course of just 24 hours, with systems handling 188 million transactions.
- China’s National Supercomputing Center in Guangzhou relies on industry-leading Intel technologies to power the world’s fastest supercomputer, the “Milky Way2” system.
- The City of Zhengzhou is addressing its truck-related challenges with a cloud-based solution that takes advantage of Intel technologies. The system links telematics data from trucks to a central data center to improve efficiency through better routing.
- The Shanghai city government is using an Intel-based Hadoop cluster to process 16 million new records created every day.
You can’t achieve accomplishments like these with yesterday’s approaches to the data center. That’s why Intel is taking a leadership role in working with customers and partners to rearchitect the data center to meet the challenges of a new era.
