To accelerate the Intel IT journey to a federated, interoperable, open hybrid cloud, we act as an in-house cloud broker, providing Intel application owners with choice and flexibility through private, public, and hybrid cloud hosting options. Our methodical approach—considering security, control, cost, location, application requirements, capacity, and availability—enables the best hosting decision... for each use case. Our private cloud currently serves about 85 percent of Intel’s needs. It gives us ultimate control over hosted applications and allows us to maximize existing investments.
In time, we anticipate growth in our public cloud usage.
Our future hybrid cloud model will combine private and public clouds to provide us with greater flexibility to make the right choice for each use case. As our ability to enable dynamic hosting decisions grows, our public cloud usage may expand to include opportunities to scale enterprise capacity based on typical loads rather than peak loads. Guiding such decisions will be our focus on providing choice and balance in agility, scalability, flexibility, and cost savings for Intel application owners.
