Intel and Google Cloud announces new chip to Boost Data Centre Performance

Share post:

Intel Corp. and Google Cloud have announced the release of a jointly developed E2000 chip codenamed Mount Evans that can improve the security and efficiency of data centers.

The chip is designed to package data from the expensive CPU panels that do the most important computing tasks for networking. It also improves security between customers who may share CPUs in the cloud, according to Amin Vahdat, Google’s vice president of engineering.

Vahdat went on to say that the companies involved see themselves as open cloud and that they are excited that others are taking advantage of their capabilities. According to Vahdat, Google Cloud is also starting to offer the E2000 in a new product called C3 VM, powered by Intel’s fourth-generation Xeon processors.

According to Nick McKeown, who heads Intel’s Network and Edge Group, the E2000 can be sold to other customers, while Xeon chips remain Intel’s most powerful CPUs, with Google Cloud being the first cloud service to deploy the latest generation of these chips.

The E2000 chip should also be able to create secure routes to each of the basic processors of chips, known as cores, to prevent information from bleeding between them.

This new chip is also an innovation for cloud companies that are looking for ways to increase the productivity of their data centers by executing increasingly complex algorithms on progressively larger data sets at a time when the performance improvement of chips like CPUs is slowing.
