Look for the Powered by Intel® Cloud Technology badge

  • Guarantee workloads run on genuine Intel processors that reliably deliver industry leading performance.
  • Find capabilities to get the most from cloud services – look for a specific Intel cloud technology offered by your provider to increase performance, reduce completion time and enhance security.

High-Performing, scalable, and more secure clouds

Intel Cloud Technology powers and protects the infrastructure stack better from the ground up with capabilities that make a difference in how well your cloud moves, processes, and safeguards data. Choose from a broad range of cloud services developed by Intel ecosystem partners who optimize for Intel processors and take full advantage of their cloud technologies. When you entrust your data and applications to a Cloud Service Provider (CSP), look for a CSP that takes advantage of Intel Cloud Technology.

Intel Cloud Technology

Powerful security

Enabling faster encryption promotes its pervasive use to support the protection of data. While faster, higher-quality cryptographic keys and certificates provide enhanced performance with increased protection for a wide range of security applications. Deliver compliance support by running your workloads on trusted compute pools that afford greater transparency.

Accelerate and optimize solution development

When looking to extend your data center, deploy with confidence knowing that what runs in your data center will run in your cloud. Over 18,000 members of Intel’s Software Partners program accelerate and optimize development of solutions for Intel Architecture. As the market leading solution, Intel-based platforms are those that software developers prioritize to deploy on first. With so much support for Intel technologies, you can deploy new and compelling services faster.

When you opt for cloud technology that delivers recognized performance, security, and developer support, you have a cloud that will keep up. Count on Intel to make the cloud work for you. It’s incredible what you can find when you know where to look. Look Inside.

Disclaimers

  1. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
