Intel Unveil Powered By Intel Cloud Technology Badge




16th January 2014
Intel have announced the unveiling of its new Powered By Intel Cloud Technology badge which will be used by 16 leading CSP's (Cloud Service Providers).

Cloud Finder
The new Cloud Finder, an Intel Online Search Engine is to be integrated into Intel's programming which will allow users to find CSP's that provide Cloud Services that match their given criteria. Users will be able to identify the technology that is being used to provide their cloud service and also have the ability to try these services for free before making a purchase.

$3.5 Billion
Intel is expecting its cloud services revenue to be $3.5 Billion in 2014 with the release of this new technology. They report that they are expecting infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) revenue to increase 41 percent annually by 2016 with more and more companies opting to reduce infrastructure costs by outsourcing their IT services.

Are Intel Correct?
If Intel is correct (and they usually are) this will mean that the quality and security of Cloud Services will become even more important than it already is. With CSP's using the Powered By Intel Cloud Technology badge it will make it more transparent to the end user just what level of technology is being used. It should be noted that all of the technology is designed to show only Intel technologies and will not be a broad ranging search and comparison of other manufacturers.

Jason Waxman, vice president, Data Centre Group and general manager, Cloud Platform Group, at Intel said "Much like when choosing a car, the type of engine that runs a cloud service dramatically affects performance and efficiency. Cloud customers want to know what technology their applications are running on because it has direct impact to their business. For the first time, users will have the transparency to select the technologies that are optimal for running their applications in the cloud."

Transparency is key
We are all for transparency, having rented services ourselves in the past that were claimed as one level of technology and were a much lower and poorer version in reality this can only be a good thing. The only thing missing is the ability to compare Intel against their rivals but we don't expect that any time soon.
