    Intel Events in 2011 - Discussing What's New About Intel's Efforts with Cloud Computing


    Last year in October of 2010, Intel outlined three key elements to its “Cloud 2015” vision: a world of interoperable “federated” clouds; “automated” movement of software applications and resources; and PC and device-savvy “client-aware” clouds that know what processing should take place in the cloud or on your laptop, smartphone or other device. As Intel helps develp this “Cloud 2015” vision, we are aiming to make cloud-based Internet computing more interoperable, secure and simplified.


    To learn more about how Intel is driving cloud computing in 2011, we will be at the following events throughout the year:

    • Cloud Connect, March 7-10, Santa Clara, CA
    • Interop West, May 8-12, Las Vegas, NV
    • Structure, June 22-23, San Francisco, CA
    • Gartner Application Architecture, Development & Integration Summit, Nov. 28-Dec 1, Las Vegas, NV
    • Gartner Data Center Summit, Dec 5-8, Las Vegas, NV


    Part of what we will be discussing at each event are the following:

    • Intel® Cloud Builders, which features the world’s leading hardware and software makers who will commit resources to spur innovation and make clouds easier to deploy, use and share.
    • New Intel hardware and software products and associated technologies for cloud computing. For instance, Intel® Xeon® processors includes features such as smart energy efficiency, Intel® Virtualization Technology and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology that are perfectly suited for cloud computing.  See Intel demos and learn more about these products at the above events.
    • We would love to hear from you and understand what you would like to see from Intel before each event.  Please provide comments so that we can best help while at each show.
