Intel: Data Center Transformation

Propelled by Demands of Cloud, Big Data, Analytics, and Mobility


Dylan Larsen, Director of Product Management for the Intel Datacenter Solutions Group joins us at HP Discover to discuss the latest developments in Data Center technology, and offer comments on the interaction between servers, networking, storage and software.

More and more data drives the need for greater efficiency. Dylan suggests that efficiency is a measure of both performance and power consumption, and managing the flood of data that is arriving in the datacenter while preserving the agility and flexibility to react to changing business conditions. We review the Intel ‘tick-tock’ cycle and discuss how Intel struggles to keep a business driven focus instead of responding to purely technology drivers.
