MWC: Intel Helping Service Providers To Optimize End-To-End IoT Value Chains
IT is in the crosshairs of a major data center architecture transition driven by a phenomenal rise in factors including Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, and real-time analytics, finding a deeper relevance in the current business landscape. Over the last year, Intel INTC +0.06% developed the concept of software-defined infrastructure (SDI) as the next step in datacenter transformation. One of the main aims of Intel’s SDI is to do away with the problems of rigid and proprietary systems, which means that an easy switch from different service providers for all your datacenter pieces is now possible. To this end, the concept behind SDI is to extend the definition of the software-defined datacenter (SDDC), and create a kind of “IT nirvana” if you will, where storage and networking pieces can quickly, easily, and cost effectively be brought together. While we may not be there just yet, this is a very good start.
