The processor family also features up to 12 cores and delivers up to 50 percent more performance2 across variety of compute intensive workloads.

 

"More than ever, organizations are looking to information technology to transform their businesses," said Diane Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of the Datacenter and Connected Systems Group at Intel. "Offering new cloud-based services requires an infrastructure that is versatile enough to support the diverse workloads and is flexible enough to respond to changes in resource demand across servers, storage and network."

 

Much of the infrastructure today is not architected to support the growth in IT services. Datacenter management is often manual and static. To enable on-demand, automated services, the next generation of datacenters will need to evolve to a "software defined infrastructure" where many of the functions are managed in software. The new Intel Xeon processors provide a common, software compatible processing foundation and possess the features and tools to help transform datacenters for the future.

 

New, Powerful Engine for Agile, Efficient Datacenter
The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family is Intel's most versatile processing technology and can address many of the constraints datacenters face today. It allows the industry to innovate and build solutions for a wide variety of datacenter workloads to meet diverse customer needs.

 

The Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 v2 product family will power the new IBM* NeXtScale System, a high-density, flexible computing platform designed for high-demand workloads such as analytics, technical computing and cloud delivery. Intel's newest processor family also will be used in IBM's new x3650 M4 HD high-density storage server, ideal for managing big data and business-critical workloads, as well as all of IBM's two-socket systems including System x racks and towers, Flex System, iDataPlex, and BladeCenter offerings.

 

Re-defining Networking, Storage
Data traffic generated by connected mobile devices and the associated services is expected to have a 66 percent3 compound annual growth rate over the next four years. This puts additional pressure on networking infrastructure to be more agile and efficient to allow for much faster provisioning of services.

 

Today, network configuration requires manual set-up by skilled IT staff and it may take up to two or three weeks to deploy required networking resources to support new applications and services. Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family accelerates efficient processing of network workloads commonly handled by expensive and proprietary offload engines and accelerators found in networking appliances.

 

Using Intel's Open Network Platform (ONP) server reference design, customers can use high-volume Xeon-based servers combined with industry open standards to consolidate virtualized networking applications. This allows them to deliver market leading throughput performance and latency for Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) workloads. Intel's ONP server reference design is based on the Wind River Open Virtualization Profile and the Intel Data Plane Development Kit Accelerated Open vSwitch.

 

HP* is an ecosystem partner for Intel's ONP server and switch reference design. "Organizations are looking for more open, industry standard technology to support complex IT demands, whether they are cloud based-applications, support for virtualized environments or for replacing expensive appliances, such as firewalls, VPNs, and edge routers," said Werner Schaefer, vice president of Market and Business Development, HP Servers. "These reference designs with innovative HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers and HP Networking solutions allow customers to consolidate networking workloads, reduce deployment costs and shorten provisioning time."

 

Eighty-two percent4 of global telecommunications providers are expected to evaluate SDN and NFV this year to find the ways to reduce their costs and increase flexibility in dynamic resource provisioning.

 

To assist in accelerating the deployment of software defined infrastructures, Intel also announced Intel® Network Builders ecosystem. The program allows ecosystem partners to take advantage of Intel's reference architecture platforms to accelerate SDN and NFV deployments. With more than 20 leading technology companies contributing, Intel's partners will be able to access a comprehensive reference architecture library of proven solutions to build and optimize software-defined infrastructure based on today's telecommunications, cloud, and enterprise datacenter requirements.

 

The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family is also designed to power cost efficient scale-out, distributed, and software defined storage. From 2012 to 2020 the amount of stored data will double every two years5, reaching 40ZB. Fast, on-demand access to this amount of data for tasks such as big data analytics require more intelligent compute and storage intensive solutions, as well as a dramatic decrease in the cost-per-stored terabyte.

 

Dell* has selected the new processors for its upcoming storage solution. "The Intel Xeon processor E5 v2 family provides a great hardware base for Dell's high performance, innovative solutions like our PowerEdge VRTX and intelligent tiered Compellent storage solutions," said Forrest Norrod, vice president and general manager of Dell Server Solutions.

 

Amazon Web Services: Intel Inside® the Instance
Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a new agreement with Intel that covers both a technology and a marketing collaboration. The marketing collaboration includes for the first time the use of the "Intel Inside" brand, letting AWS customers know that the services it provides are utilizing Intel technologies.

Krzanich Announces New Lower-Power Product Family, Demonstrates Upcoming LTE and Lead 14nm Products

 

INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, San Francisco, Sept. 10, 2013 – From datacenters to ultra-mobile devices such as tablets, phones and wearables, computing segments are undergoing exciting and even game-changing transitions, said new Intel CEO Brian Krzanich during today's opening session of the Intel Developer Forum. Krzanich laid out Intel's vision and described how Intel is addressing each dynamic market segment – such as accelerating Intel's progress in ultra-mobile devices – with new products over the next year and beyond, including a new, lower-power product family.

 

Krzanich said Intel plans to leave no segment untapped. "Innovation and industry transformation are happening more rapidly than ever before, which play to Intel's strengths. We have the manufacturing technology leadership and architectural tools in place to push further into lower power regimes. We plan to shape and lead in all areas of computing."

 

This year's Intel Developer Forum marked the first keynote addresses by Krzanich and Intel President Renée James since assuming their new roles in May.

 

In her presentation, James envisioned a new era in which every device and every object computes, meaning that integrated computing solutions must be smaller, faster, more versatile and produced in higher volume.

 

"Semiconductor-based technology will continue to address the world's most pressing problems and exciting opportunities, changing how we live our lives, run our cities and care for our health," said James. "Intel has played a pivotal role in every previous technology transition and will continue to enable breakthroughs in the future."

 

Accelerating Progress in Ultra-Mobile Devices
Krzanich said that Intel this week will introduce "Bay Trail," Intel's first 22nm system-on-a-chip (SoC) for mobile devices. "Bay Trail" is based on the company's new low-power, high-performance Silvermont microarchitecture, which will power a range of innovative Android* and Windows* designs, most notably tablets and 2 in 1 devices.

 

Defining the expanding ultra-mobile segment as smartphones, tablets, 2 in 1 tablets that take on PC functions with add-on keyboards, and other devices beyond traditional mobile computers, he said that ultra-mobiles are a more dynamic segment than is often recognized.

 

"Smartphones and tablets are not the end-state," he said. The next wave of computing is still being defined. Wearable computers and sophisticated sensors and robotics are only some of the initial applications."

 

As an example of how Intel will continue to use its manufacturing and architectural leadership to push further into lower power regimes, Krzanich announced the Intel Quark processor family. The new lower-power products will extend Intel's reach to growing segments from the industrial Internet-of-Things to wearable computing. It is designed for applications where lower power and size take priority over higher performance.

 

Intel will sample form-factor reference boards based on the first product in this family during the fourth quarter of this year to help partners accelerate development of tailored, optimized solutions initially aimed at the industrial, energy and transportation segments.

 

As the next era of computing grows even more personal, wearables are a hotbed for innovation. Krzanich highlighted a bracelet as an example of a concept with reference designs under development, and said the company is actively pursuing opportunities with partners in this area.

 

In high-speed 4G wireless data communications, Krzanich said Intel's new LTE solution provides a compelling alternative for multimode, multiband 4G connectivity, removing a critical barrier to Intel's progress in the smartphone market segment. Intel is now shipping a multimode chip, the Intel® XMM™ 7160 modem, which is one of the world's smallest and lowest-power multimode-multiband solutions for global LTE roaming.

 

As an example of the accelerating development pace under Intel's new management team, Krzanich said that the company's next-generation LTE product, the Intel® XMM™ 7260 modem, is now under development. Expected to ship in 2014, the Intel XMM 7260 modem will deliver LTE-Advanced features, such as carrier aggregation, timed with future advanced 4G network deployments. Krzanich showed the carrier aggregation feature of the Intel XMM 7260 modem successfully doubling throughput speeds during his keynote presentation.

 

He also demonstrated a smartphone platform featuring both the Intel XMM 7160 LTE solution and Intel's next-generation Intel® Atom™ SoC for 2014 smartphones and tablets codenamed "Merrifield." Based on the Silvermont microarchitecture, "Merrifield" will deliver increased performance, power-efficiency and battery life over Intel's current-generation offering.

 

Intel Manufacturing Leadership
Citing continued, rapid innovation for PCs of the future, Krzanich demonstrated a 14nm-based "Broadwell" system. "Broadwell," set to begin production by the end of this year, will be the lead product made using Intel's 14nm manufacturing process. The first "Broadwell" products will deliver higher performance, longer battery life and low platform power points for 2 in 1 and fanless devices, Ultrabooks™ and various PC designs.

 

Saying that Intel will bring the full weight of its manufacturing process and architectural leadership to the Intel Atom processor family, he confirmed Intel intends to bring its Intel Atom processor and other products based on the next-generation "Airmont" microarchitecture to market on Intel's leading-edge 14nm process technology beginning next year. Timing will vary by product segment.

 

As the only company offering 3-D Tri-gate transistors and the only semiconductor manufacturer in production at 22nm, Intel leads the industry in transistor technology by about three years. With its coming 14nm process, Intel's second process generation with 3-D Tri-gate transistors, the company will further extend this lead. Advanced 3-D Tri-gate transistors enable the improved performance and energy efficiency demanded by today's spectrum of computing that ranges from ultra-mobiles to servers.

 

Re-Architecting the Datacenter
Intel's datacenter business, which generates more than $10 billion in revenues annually, develops solutions that help businesses keep pace with the increasing demands for cloud services and for managing data generated from billions of users and connected devices worldwide. Intel's goal is to re-architect the datacenter to enable a common, software-defined foundation for both datacenters and cloud service providers that spans servers, networking, storage and security.

 

Intel's newest Intel® Xeon® processor family for datacenters will launch later today; last week Intel introduced a portfolio of datacenter products and technologies, including the second generation 64-bit Intel® Atom™ C2000 product family of SoC designs for microservers and cold storage platforms (codenamed "Avoton") as well as for entry networking platforms (codenamed "Rangeley").

 

Computing to Solve the World's Problems
In her comments, James highlighted smart cities and customized healthcare as examples of potential applications for technology that can turn computing theories into life-changing realities.

 

By 2050, 70 percent of the world's population is expected to live in megacities, according to James. Developments in semiconductor technology will further advance machine-to-machine data management in smart cities. Intel is partnering with the cities of Dublin and London to build a reference solution that could revolutionize urban management, providing citizens with better cities and improved municipal services with lower costs.

 

"It's one thing to install computing power in billions of smart objects," said James. "What we're doing is harder -- making powerful computing solutions that turn data to wisdom and search for answers to the world's most complex problems like cancer care. What we've seen so far is just a glimpse of how Intel technology could be used to help heal, educate, empower and sustain the planet."

 

James also highlighted Intel's supercomputing work as one of many examples where computational ability can transform healthcare, the largest sector of the global economy. Intel is working with the Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health and Science University on a project aimed at shrinking the cost and time to analyze human genetic profiles and create searchable maps of DNA in multiple dimensions.

 

"For the first time in modern medicine, the computing and technology side of health care is as important as the biological side," James said. "The more computing power we can deliver at a feasible price point, the more lives are saved."
