Scalable Data Center: Right into the CloudScale Your Data Center—Right into the CloudIgnoring the cloud is no longer an option. The potential benefits in agility and efficiency are simply too great. Yet turning your data center into a private cloud can be a complex and potentially costly undertaking, and you already have many other high-priority challenges to address as your workloads, data volumes, costs, and application requirements continue to grow. Intel and Microsoft offer a game-changing solution to this challenge.Microsoft Windows Server* 2012 and servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4600/2600/2400/1600 product families provide a scalable, dynamic, and multitenant-aware infrastructure that lets you unify your IT environment across multiple sites and connect securely with public cloud services. Add Microsoft System Center* 2012 Service Pack 1 and you can implement a complete private cloud that gives you highly-automated control over workloads and service levels, with deep insight into your applications and infrastructure.Yet there is no need for disruptive change. The combined platform also provides dramatically increased capability and value for existing solutions, along with a unified framework for managing and securing all your IT assets: physical, virtual, and cloud. With this uniquely integrated and cost-effective solution, you can implement targeted improvements in performance, power efficiency, manageability, and security throughout your existing environment, while gradually implementing cloud functionality to transform the way you deliver and manage IT services.Read the full Scalable Data Center: Right into the Cloud Solution Brief.
