Progressing toward the Federated, Automated, and Client-Aware Cloud
At Cloud Expo Silicon Valley, Intel General Manager Jason Waxman discussed how the industry is advancing technology solutions and standards development for cloud computing. Today, cloud computing is driven by more users, more devices, more storage, and more traffic—all of which requires a solid infrastructure to manage the growth. Intel’s Cloud 2015 Vision includes the following characteristics: federated, to share data securely across public and private cloud environments; automated, so that IT can focus more on innovation; and client aware, to optimize services based on device capabilities. Moving forward, there must be open industry standards to enable interoperability and allow for industry innovation.
