Low- Power System-on-Chip ‘optimised for cloud, telco service providers and web hosters’ says Intel

Intel has taken the wraps off its refreshed Xeon D processor family, the company’s first ever Xeon processor-based system-on-chip (SoC).

The Xeon D is set to be right at home in the scalable data centre, ready to tackle the rise of IoT, said Intel.

Connected devices

“The growth of connected devices and demand for more digital services has created new opportunities for information and communication technology,” said Diane Bryant, SVP of the Data Center Group at Intel.

“By bringing Intel Xeon processor performance to a low-power SoC, we’re delivering the best of both worlds and enabling our customers to deliver exciting new services.”

There are more than 50 systems currently in design. Approximately 75 percent are network, storage and IoT designs. System providers currently designing microservers based on the Intel Xeon processor D family include Cisco, HP and NEC.

In a press release detailing the new chips, Intel said that the increasing proliferation of connected devices is driving ‘exponential growth’ in data traffic, in turn increasing the demands on the data centre and network infrastructure for cloud and telco providers.
