Chip Shot: Intel Aims to “Re-Architect” Datacenters

Intel today outlined its strategy to re-architect the datacenter infrastructure to enable companies and end-users to benefit from an increasingly services-oriented, mobile world. The company announced additional details about its next-generation Intel® Atom™ processor C2000 product family (codenamed “Avoton” and “Rangeley”), as well as disclosed its roadmap of next-generation 14nm products for 2014 and beyond. In a step towards reaching its Rack Scale Architecture vision, Intel also announced the first commercial rack scale implementation with Rackspace* Hosting. This robust pipeline of current and future products and technologies will allow Intel to expand into new segments of the datacenter that look to transition from proprietary designs to more open, standards-based compute models.
