Chip Shot: Intel and CoreOS Collaborate to Democratize Cloud Computing

At CoreOS Fest today, Intel’s Nicholas Weaver shared how Intel is working with CoreOS to scale and accelerate adoption of its Tectonic suite – a solution for enterprises and cloud service providers transitioning to distributed, container-based software infrastructure. Intel supports the hyperscale and highly orchestrated container movement, and believes it will help democratize cloud computing by making it easier to operate with the agility and efficiency previously only used by a few highly advanced cloud service providers. At the event, Intel also demonstrated how the combination of the CoreOS portfolio and Kubernetes, running on a Supermicro system, is anticipated to have a big impact on mainstream businesses.
