Intel and Google Cloud Simplify Hybrid and Multi-Clouds Deployment

December 1, 2020

Dec. 1, 2020 — What’s New: Intel and Google Cloud have announced their collaboration to simplify enterprises’ ability to adopt and deploy cloud-first business models using their existing on-prem, self-managed hardware. The two organizations co-developed reference architectures optimized for the now-generally available “Anthos on bare metal” solution. Targeted at data center and edge computing use cases, customers can leverage the reference architectures to rapidly deploy enterprise-class applications on their existing hardware infrastructure and efficiently handle complicated hybrid- and multi-cloud tasks.

“With today’s rapidly evolving business climate, enterprises are constantly looking for new ways to modernize their business while leveraging their existing infrastructure. Running Anthos on bare metal using servers based on Intel Xeon Scalable processors will simplify the deployment of a cloud-first approach, opening a wide array of new use cases across retail, telco and manufacturing industries.”
–Jason Grebe, Intel corporate vice president and general manager the Cloud and Enterprise Solutions Group

What’s the Benefit: Anthos on bare metal helps customers expedite hybrid- and multi-cloud deployments within their enterprise. The co-developed reference architectures Optimized to target the unique feature set of Intel processors, providing customers consistency as they move containerized applications between common architectures within different cloud environments.

Intel Xeon Scalable processors are one of the most widely deployed server processors in the world, targeting a broad range of applications from the core of the data center to the edge of the network. Customers can use the data center reference architecture within Intel Xeon Scalable processors to help:

  • Optimize networking workloads leveraging Intel’s Data Plane Development Kit with single root input/output virtualization.
  • Deploy artificial intelligence and analytics workloads leveraging Intel Deep Learning Boost technology.
  • Accelerate encryption and compression workloads with Intel QuickAssist technology.

“Anthos on bare metal provides customers with more choice and flexibility over where to deploy applications in the public cloud, on prem or at the edge,” said Rayn Veerubhotla, director, Partner Engineering at Google Cloud. “Intel’s support for Anthos on bare metal ensures that customers can quickly deploy their enterprise applications on existing hardware, simplifying their path to hybrid- and multi-cloud approaches.”

Why It’s Important: Anthos allows applications to be packaged into containers and moved between various public cloud environments without having to rewrite the application for the underlying cloud infrastructure. Anthos on bare metal is an option that now allows enterprises to run Anthos on their existing on-prem physical servers, deployed on an operating system without a hypervisor layer.

What’s Being Done: Intel and Google Cloud have co-developed two reference architectures for Anthos on bare metal: a data center reference architecture and an edge reference architecture. The server-based data center reference architecture features Intel Xeon Gold 6240Y processors, Intel Optane persistent memory, Intel Solid State Drive DC S4500 Series and 10/25 GbE Intel Ethernet Adapters. The edge reference architecture targets the Intel NUC 10 performance kit featuring the 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10710U processor, Intel SSD Pro 7600p and Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V.

Intel has validated both architectures with Google Cloud for customers to start to deploy today. Customers can work with their OEM partners, systems integrator or reseller to build out the reference architecture in their infrastructure.
