Cloud Computing, Virtualization and Open Source on Intel

In an earlier post, I mentioned that the Open Source at Intel website was going to have several focused topics about the intersection of Cloud Computing, Virtualization and Open Source. I wanted to highlight a few of those new topics here in this blog post.

Cloud Computing Spotlight: Virtualization&aposs Next Frontier

"Because of its strengths in collaborative, standards-based innovation, Open Source software holds great promise for moving the cloud forward. Building on the foundations of mature hypervisor technologies such as those in Xen* and KVM*, open Cloud Computing infrastructures will advance the ecosystem as a whole." Read more …

Project Spotlight: Xen and KVM Enablement for Trusted Computing

"The security of Cloud Computing is vital to end customers as they consider placing their data on public infrastructure. They need to be assured of a trusted environment, even as they share hardware with other organizations, cede administrative control to the cloud operator, and comingle data and applications of multiple security levels. Current work by Intel within the Xen* and KVM* projects is helping to advance that goal through a mixture of hardware and Open Source software technologies." Read more …

Ecosystem Spotlight on Virtualization

"Nowhere do the benefits of Open Source seem more compelling than in the burgeoning Cloud Computing space, where virtualization and advanced technologies create bright opportunities for innovative companies. To explore the enterprise perspectives on public and private clouds, Intel invited a panel of notable experts from Cisco, Citrix, Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, and VMware to share their viewpoints at the Intel Developer Forum 2009." Read more …

Content Spotlight: Security in a Virtualized Environment Whitepaper

"As with any major change to an organization’s IT architecture, virtualization brings with it a number of new security challenges and considerations. The hardware and software ecosystem continually introduces new measures to help address these challenges. The security outlook around virtualization continues to unfold, including the following key changes to the physical security model." Read more …

Intel Expert Series: Billy Cox and Jun Nakajima

"Billy Cox is particularly involved in the development of strategic relationships between Intel and hypervisor projects, especially Xen* and KVM,* as well as cloud platforms such as the Eucalyptus project. Among his key goals are enabling trusted multi-tenancy in Cloud Computing environments." Read more …

"Jun Nakajima is a Principal Engineer at the Intel® Open Source Technology Center who focuses on Open Source virtualization projects, such as Xen and KVM. In fact, Jun wrote the first code for Xen to take advantage of Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) and continues to be recognized as one of the key contributors to Xen." Read more …

Platform Technology Spotlight

"In the application virtualization space, many Citrix customers are looking to simplify their environments by virtualizing their Citrix XenApp* servers on Citrix XenServer*. Citrix recently benchmarked its XenApp 5.0 application virtualization solution with new XenServer 5.5 on the Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series and demonstrated dramatic performance benefits, compounded by the use of Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology." Read more …
