NEW DELHI: Intel India said that it has launched its new InteL Xeon Scalable processors, providing businesses with unparalleled performance to handle compute-hungry tasks including real-time analytics, virtualized infrastructure and high performance computing.
This marks the greatest set of data center and network processor advancements in a decade.
“As India Inc. increases its investment in technology, the country’s data center and network infrastructure will undergo a massive transformation. Emerging use cases in the financial, ITeS, healthcare, and academic sectors will necessitate agile networks that can interpret and implement decisions based on artificial intelligence, HPC, and in the near future, 5G”, said Prakash Mallya, Managing Director – Sales & Marketing Group, Intel India.
“Intel Xeon Scalable processors will address the increasingly complex and varied needs of the data center, enabling customers to deliver next-generation business and consumer experiences through unparalleled performance, security and agility,” he added.
Today’s general availability announcement follows Intel’s largest data center early ship program with more than 500,000 Intel Xeon Scalable Processors already sold to leading enterprise, high performance computing, cloud and communication services provider customers.
In India, leading stock exchange – National Stock Exchange, and cloud service provider NxtGen have been a part of this initiative, and are expected to benefit from a dramatic performance increase of 1.65X on average2 over previous generation technology.
Intel’s new portfolio of data centre processors will provide businesses with the richest suite of platform feature innovations that deliver significant performance increases across key workloads. These include:
Intel also introduced Intel Select Solutions, a solutions brand aimed at simplifying and speeding the deployment of data center and network infrastructure. This is an expansion of the company’s deep investment in Intel Builders ecosystem collaborations and will deliver a choice of Intel verified configurations to the market enabling customers to speed return on investment in Intel Xeon Scalable processor based infrastructure for user prioritized workloads.
“Security breaches and vulnerability discoveries are some of the biggest threats facing enterprises and governments today,” said Vikram K, Senior Director, Data Center and Hybrid Cloud, Hewlett Packard Enterprise India.
“Powered by new Intel Xeon Scalable processors, our ProLiant Gen10 server portfolio features an innovative firmware security mechanism that we call the ‘silicon root of trust,’ which enables detection of malware and creates a resilient industry-standard server infrastructure. Through our continued alliance with Intel, our commitment is to provide our customers with the best compute experience, with unmatched security,” he added.
“We are the fastest high performance computing provider in the world, and aim to be the largest by 2020. Our new ThinkSystem and ThinkAgile brands will empower our customers with reliable, agile and best performing data center solutions to address challenging business problems. With India’s data center market booming and our continued collaboration with Intel, we are committed towards advancing our customer’s data center experience and becoming digital disrupters in this industry”, said Vivek Sharma, Director, Data Center Group, Lenovo India.
“A hybrid IT infrastructure is becoming the norm today. At NxtGen, our endeavour is to make relevant technology available to our customers that not only addresses their business needs, but also acts as a differentiator vis-à-vis their competitors. We are collaborating with Intel to deploy the new Intel Xeon scalable family platform for enhanced performance and security, allowing us to run more workloads per server, resulting in cost optimization. Additionally, our Developer Cloud initiative will allow developers ro build test applications that include machine learning and AI capabilities without investing, building and managing complex infrastructure”, said AS Rajagopal, Managing Director at NxtGen Datacenter & Cloud Technologies.
“India offers a unique opportunity pertaining to the IT Infrastructure market, with Digital Transformation becoming a top priority for CEO’s. Data centers need to deliver a modern infrastructure that adapts and scales with business needs and ultimately enables faster IT transformation. Dell EMC’s PowerEdge 14th Generation improve upon the world’s best-selling server portfolio, with performance innovations that will enable our customers to optimize their business potential”, said Manish Gupta, Senior Director & General Manager, Compute & Networking Group, Dell EMC India.
