Intel's New Skylake Purley Intel Xeon Scalable Processor
Intel rolled out its new Skylake family of server processors aimed specifically at data center applications with the new mesh-based Purley architecture to reduce latency at high core counts.
The new family, the Intel Xeon Scalable Platform, is also at the center of a wide range of new data center servers offering new levels of performance, density, and scalability. Vendors with new Skylake servers ranged from the top-three branded companies to specialty custom system builders.
But the Skylake processors are not just about servers. Several other IT vendors in the storage and cloud market segments jumped on the Intel Xeon Scalable Platform bandwagon this week as well.
Intel expects its new processors will help customers and partners find new ways to transform data centers to meet the requirements of new cloud, networking, and artificial intelligence applications. Here's a look at what Intel's vendor partners are doing.
