As per reports, Intel Corporation (INTC) and Alphabet Inc’s (GOOG) Google Cloud are working together to create a new category of chip that Intel hopes will become a major seller in the booming cloud computing market. The chip is called Mount Evans and will be sold to others beyond Google. Tasks like setting up the virtual machines and getting customer data to the right place are overhead costs for cloud providers. The Mount Evans chip, which Google and Intel have dubbed an “infrastructure processing unit” (IPU), divides those tasks out from the main computing tasks and also speeds them up, it also ensures the safety of those functions against hackers and adds flexibility to the data center.
Intel is not the only one making infrastructure chips, Nvidia Corp and Marvell Technology Inc. have similar, but slightly different offerings. Intel and Google are both working together on a set of software tools that will be released for free to make their version of the chip a broader industry standard used beyond Google’s data centers.
Intel Corporation (INTC) seeks to expand the boundaries of technology to provide the most amazing experience possible while designing, manufacturing, and selling integrated digital technology globally.
