$142.8 billion oninfrastructure for both public and private cloud environments in the next three years (2016-2018) to boost efficiency and business agility.
To support this rapid evolving space, Intel announced a “Cloud for All” initiative last year in order to help businesses get the most out of their cloud infrastructure. Specific goals for this initiative include:
- Investing in the ecosystem to accelerate enterprise-ready, easy-to-deploy software defined infrastructure (SDI) solutions;
- Optimizing SDI solutions to deliver highly efficient clouds across a range of workloads by taking full advantage of Intel platform capabilities; and
- Aligning the industry and engaging the community through open industry standards, solutions and routes to market to accelerate cloud deployment.
Dr. Brian Womack, Director of Distributed Analytics Solutions in Intel’s Data Center Solutions Group, and Das Kamhout, Senior Principal Engineer at Intel are learning how to use data, artificial intelligence frameworks and machine learning to create data centers that think for themselves. Two key components of their vision are SNAP and TAP.
SNAP is a powerful open data center telemetry framework. It can be used to easily collect, process, and publish telemetry data at scale. It enables better data center scheduling and workload management through access to underlying telemetry data and platform metrics. The framework greatly improves system administrator control of the intelligent use of data center infrastructure in cloud environments by:
- Empowering systems to expose a consistent set of telemetry data;
- Simplifying telemetry ingestion across ubiquitous storage system;
- Improving the deployment model, packaging and flexibility for collecting telemetry;
- Allowing flexible processing of telemetry data on agent (e.g. machine learning); and
- Providing powerful clustered control of telemetry workflows across small or large clusters.
Trusted Analytics Platform (TAP) makes the SNAP telemetry usable by providing the tools, components and services necessary in the creation of advanced analytics and machine learning solutions. TAP makes these resources accessible in one place for data scientists, application developers and system operators. An open-source software platform optimized for performance and security, TAP simplifies solution development through the delivery of a collaborative and flexible integrated environment.
Used in combination, SNAP and TAP could be used to make sentient data centers a reality.
