Cloud Computing Inside Intel IT

Cloud Computing is a key area of innovation for Intel and one of Intel IT's Top 3 Objectives.  We are adopting cloud computing as part of our data center strategy to provide cost-effective, highly agile back-end services that boost both employee and business productivity.   In 2010, Intel more than tripled our rate of virtualization from 12% to 42% and reduced the time to provision new infrastructure services to 3 hours from 90 days by implementing an On Demand Self Service portal as part of our enterprise private cloud.

Cloud Computing is changing the way we inside Intel IT look at our architecture: from the client technology our employees will use to access business services and data to the data center infrastructure necessary to support those services.  As a result, we adopted a multi-year enterprise cloud computing strategy in 2009 and are actively implementing an enterprise private cloud architecture to support Intel’s business.
