Intel® Atom™ Processor C2000 for Cloud and Cold Storage: Brief
Improved Efficiency for Cloud and Cold Storage Workloads
Optimized Building Blocks to Help Improve Efficiency and TCO of Cold Storage Solutions
With the need to rapidly deliver new services, cope with massive data growth, and contain costs, cloud service providers are looking for more efficient ways to store, manage, and protect their (and their customers’) data. Intelligent storage designs based on Intel® Xeon® processors provide leadership performance and performance per watt and can handle the most demanding storage workloads such as data de-duplication and compression. However, certain lightweight, low-touch, cloud storage—such as cold storage—can sometimes be hosted more efficiently on a larger number of smaller storage platforms for improved power efficiency.
Intel designed the Intel® Atom™ processor C2000 product family to help meet the needs of low-touch, lightweight storage systems as well the needs of certain microservers and communications equipment. Now designers and customers have Intel® architecture options that scale from high-end storage solutions to the low end to maximize the reuse of software, tools, and support.
