A vision for cloud computing technology
Intel launched the Cloud 2015 Vision to help businesses implement cloud computing solutions that are federated, automated, and client-aware. This vision offers the promise of swiftly responding to the demands of users. With federated clouds, IT can rapidly scale computing resources, while client-aware clouds enable the delivery of optimized applications to end-user devices.
Intel’s Ecosystem Fellow Travelers are working to help make the Intel® Cloud 2015 Vision a reality. At their site, you can see how Intel and the ecosystem are engaging in plans to help companies on the journey to the cloud, or you can take a moment to download one of the Reference Architectures to assist you in building and optimizing your cloud infrastructure.
