Tech company Intel and Google Cloud have announced a strategic partnership aimed at helping enterprise customers seamlessly deploy applications across on-premise and cloud environments.
The two companies will collaborate on Anthos, a new reference design based on the 2nd-Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor and an optimized Kubernetes software stack that will deliver increased workload portability to customers who want to take advantage of hybrid cloud environments. Intel will publish the production design as an Intel Select Solution, as well as a developer platform.
While organizations are embracing multi-cloud solutions to fuel their businesses, many companies remain challenged to find the right hybrid cloud solutions that enable seamless workload migration across clouds.
Business and trade associations in all parts of the world can contact us for digital marketing training programs for groups of their members. Event management companies in all parts of the world can also contact us for media partnerships and content-based marketing of technology events.
The new Anthos reference design will address this challenge by delivering a stack optimized for workload portability, enabling deployment of applications across on-premise data centers and public cloud provider services.
This collaboration is an extension of a technology alliance between the two companies that already spans many infrastructure optimizations, collaboration on high-growth workloads like artificial intelligence, and integration of new technologies into the Google Cloud Platform, such as the 2nd-Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory.
The new reference design will be delivered by mid-year 2019 with expected solution delivery from OEMs and solutions integrators in market later this year.
