Google Cloud in Association with Intel launch New Chip to Enhance Data Center Performance

Intel Corp and Alphabet Inc’s Google Cloud on Tuesday said they have sent off a co-designed chip that can make data farms more secure and proficient.

The code-named Mount Evans, which is an E2000 chip takes over the work of packaging data for networking from the costly central processing units (CPU) that do the fundamental figuring. It likewise offers better security between different clients that may be sharing central processors in the cloud, explained Google’s vice president of engineering, Amin Vahdat.

Cores are the basic processors which need to make the Chips. There can be hundreds of cores on a chip and sometimes information can drain between them. The E2000 makes secure routes to each core to forestall such a scenario.

Companies are running progressively complex algorithms, using progressively greater data sets, at a time when the performance improvement of chips like CPUs is slowing down. Cloud companies are subsequently searching for ways to make the data center itself more productive.

While the new chip was co-developed with Google, Nick McKeown, who leads Intel’s Network and Edge group, said Intel can sell the E2000 to other clients.

“We do consider ourselves to be the open cloud, and to the extent that others take advantage of the capabilities here, we’re thrilled,” said Vahdat.

Google Cloud is starting to offer the E2000 in a new item called C3 VM which will be powered by Intel’s fourth-generation Xeon processors, said Vahdat. Xeon chips are Intel’s most powerful CPUs and Google Cloud is the first cloud administration to deploy the latest generation of those chips, Intel said.
