Intel® Server Products for Cloud

Accelerating the path to private cloud with SDS and VMware* VSAN Ready Nodes from Intel

Research shows that 80% of workloads will run on a cloud architecture by 2024.1 To successfully navigate the transition to private cloud, customers need a software-defined infrastructure (SDI) that is automated, resilient, and programmatically extensible. Modernizing storage resources is an essential element to SDI, driving up customer demand for SDS solutions.

To increase reseller access to the SDI market and enable them to help customers modernize storage resources, Intel is delivering a new server product optimized for SDS. The Intel® Server Products for Cloud – VSAN Ready Nodes are fully-validated, pre-configured server systems that include VMware certifications for VSAN. With these VSAN Ready Nodes from Intel, resellers have access to the software-defined storage market, making it easier to deliver SDS solutions to customers.

Cost-Effective, Scalable Storage with Intel and VMware VSAN

Traditional storage is fixed, siloed and hard to scale, and addressing these challenges remains one of the key barriers customers face as they move to a cloud-based infrastructure. VMware* VSAN provides one path to SDS with the simplified storage provisioning, granular scalability, advanced management, and outstanding performance required for enterprise-class SDS solutions. To help accelerate storage modernization, Intel is providing VSAN certifications as part of its VSAN Ready Node to give resellers better access to the SDS market and enable them to deliver innovative storage solutions to their customers.

Reduced Complexity, Improved ROI & Faster Time to Market

Designing, testing and validating SDS solutions is a costly and resource- intensive process. By starting with a higher-level of integration and certification, partners can reduce costs and speed time to market. This approach gives partners more flexibility and choice about where to invest R&D spend to ensure they remain competitive and drive differentiation in the market. There is also increased acquisition value to the partner, since they source a validated bundle of products with a single order code, rather than acquiring each component individually.
