Intel develops new chip to improve cloud computing

 Intel, the computer chip manufacturing company, recently announced the development of the Xeon 5600 chip that it hopes will make cloud computing faster and more secure for organizations looking for a reliable option as they move into cloud computing. The company reports that the 5600 is 60 percent faster than the 5500 that it released in March 2009.

The company expects to develop more hardware aimed at improving cloud computing over the next five years, but it believes that the 5600 will remain a viable option for less sensitive cloud computing systems even as companies release newer technologies in the future.

“The Intel Xeon Processor 5600 series will be the backbone of mainstream computing environments,” Kirk Skaugen, vice president of the Intel Architechture Group, told

“Improvements in performance, server virtualization and power consumption will foster productivity and efficiency for a broad range of applications ranging from data transactions to workstations performing medical imaging and digital prototyping,” he continued.

Technology market research firm Gartner believes that at least 20 percent of companies will be entirely in the cloud by 2012, while a majority of businesses will have a substantial portion of their IT in the cloud.ADNFCR-2178-ID-19700997-ADNFCR
