Product Overview Accelerating the Path to Private Cloud with Intel Data Centre Blocks
Businesses are increasingly demanding that IT infrastructures are more scalable, reliable and secure. Research shows that 80% of workloads will run on a cloud architecture by 2024. As a result, IT departments are transforming their traditional data centres through the use of software-defined infrastructure (SDI) technologies and private cloud. To help customers with this transformation, Intel and Microsoft have collaborated across the areas of compute, storage, networking and security to deliver server system configurations that optimize the features and performance of Windows Server 2016 helping customers accelerate the path to private cloud.

To increase reseller access to the SDI market and enable them to help customers modernize storage resources, Intel is delivering Intel@ Data Centre Blocks for Cloud — Microsoft Windows Server 2016. These Cloud Blocks for Windows Server 2016 are fully-validated server systems that are built with Windows Server 2016-certified ingredients. These cloud blocks are configured to optimize the performance of the Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) feature of Windows Server 2016, making it easier to deliver software-defined storage (SDS) solutions to customers.

Cost-Effective, Scalable Storage with Intel and Storage Spaces Direct
Storage systems are critical to the performance of most business applications. But traditional storage is expensive, siloed and hard to scale, preventing organizations from realizing the benefits of an SDS solution. Addressing these challenges remains one of the key barriers customers face as they move to a cloud-based infrastructure. Microsoft provides a path to SDS through Windows Server 2016 S2D features, including Scale-Out File Server, Clustered Shared Volume File System (CSVFS), Storage Spaces and Failover Clustering. The storage modernization features in Windows Server 2016 can help customers reduce costs, create affordable business continuity and better prioritize storage resources.

Reduce Complexity, Improve ROI & Speed Time-to-Market
Designing, testing and certifying SDS solutions is a costly and resource-intensive process. By starting with a higher level of integration and certification, partners can reduce costs and accelerate time-to-market with unbranded server blocks designed for specific workloads. This approach gives partners more flexibility and choice about where to invest R&D resources to ensure they remain competitive and drive differentiation in the market. There is also increased acquisition value to the partner, since they source a validated bundle of products with a single order code, rather than acquiring each component individually.

Full System with Intel Quality and Performance via Single Order Code
Breakthrough Performance
Cloud Blocks for Microsoft are powered by the latest Intel technology, and include Intel Server Boards, Intel Server Chassis, Intel Xeon processors, Intel Data Centre SSD Family, and third-party memory in configurations optimized and pre-certified for Windows Server 2016. Available in both All-Flash and Hybrid configurations, these server systems are optimized for high-performance computing, hyper-converged infrastructure, and outstanding storage performance. The Intel Xeon processor accelerates virtualized storage with features such as Intel Advanced Vector Extensions and Intel Virtualization Technology. The integrated RDMA feature in the new Intel Xeon Scalable processor further enhances S2D performance with up to 45% lower latency for application I/O, up to 50% more IOPs for application I/O and up to 40% fewer CPU cycles per 1/03. Intel SSDs provide high throughput and low latency, maximizing power while reducing cost and space requirements. All-Flash configurations deploy Intel's high endurance NVMe SSDs for the cache tier, delivering excellent performance, high IOPs and low latency.

Smart Boards Ensure System Stability and Increased Uptime
Intel Server Boards have more than 100 sensors built in that monitor all critical functions and use management capabilities to automatically flag problems before they impact business operations. Event logs and light-guided diagnostics also assist in rapid identification and issue remediation.

Enhanced Benefits
To further help partners succeed, Intel Technology Providers have the opportunity to qualify for Intel Technology Provider Cloud Data Centre Specialist designation. Cloud Specialists have access to exclusive resources specifically designed to help streamline the delivery of cloud-optimized solutions. Specialist benefits include special access to the Intel experts and engineering resources to assist Cloud Specialists as they identify exact customer requirements. Other benefits include access to valuable solutions guides, technical support and other tools to help build customer value.

Intel Warranty Delivers Value and Confidence
Intel Data Centre Blocks for Cloud are backed by Intel's standard 3-year warranty from the date of purchase, with optional 5-year warranty plans available for select components.

Intel Data Centre Blocks are also eligible for Advanced Warranty Replacement whereby Intel will send a replacement part before the defective part is returned, reducing downtime and speeding time to resolution.
