Intel India on Wednesday launched the new Intel Xeon Scalable processors. The announcement follows Intel’s largest data centre early ship programme with more than 5 lakh Intel Xeon Scalable Processors already sold to leading enterprise, high performance computing, cloud and communication services provider customers.
National Stock Exchange and cloud service provider NxtGen are early adopters of the new data centre platform of Intel from India. Intel India Managing Director Sales and Marketing Group Prakash Mallya said, “Intel Xeon Scalable processors will address the increasingly complex and varied needs of the data centre, enabling customers to deliver next-generation business and consumer experiences through unparalleled performance, security and agility.”
He added that cloud is accelerating in India and the adoption is faster across every segment. The processors are designed to support an expanding range of existing and emerging data centre and network workloads including cloud computing, 5-G ready networks, high performance computing and artificial intelligence. “With India’s data centre market booming and our collaboration with Intel, we are committed towards advancing our customers’ data centre experience and becoming digital disrupters in this industry,” said Lenovo India Director, Data Centre Group Vivek Sharma.
Talking about competition, Mallya said it is good for the industry and that technology gets better due to competition. “We can deliver better value to customers,” he said.
