Intel’s Data Center Group: Cloud, Custom, Networking to Fuel Growth
Intel’s data center group, powered by Xeon processors, is surging as 35 percent of the unit’s revenue comes from cloud deployments and that infrastructure for the likes of Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure is increasingly custom.
Those takeaways were front and center as Diane Bryant, head of Intel’s data center group (DCG), highlighted the outlook. Intel’s hammerlock on the server market means that it can do well even as workloads move to the cloud. Will enterprises buy a lot of servers in the future (probably not), but those Xeons are likely to be in the systems bought by cloud vendors.
