As the availability of cloud technology has increased over the past few years, the number of users has steadily risen. At the same time, there has been a surge in the number of cloud providers. Naturally, competition has grown, and users are now paying closer attention to certain nuances that they may have previously overlooked. These include not only the cloud’s specs, but the physical machines powering these services.
Cloud storage providers don’t often advertise what hardware or technologies their platform is built on. By ignoring the hardware though, we run the risk of performance issues: a system’s actual performance may be significantly lower (40-60%) than advertised.
Over the past few years, Intel has made serious contributions to the development of cloud technologies, starting with their Powered by Intel® Cloud Technology program. The goal of this program is to make the cloud market as transparent as possible. Several companies around the world are taking part: in the USA, France, Mexico, India, Czech Republic, etc. All of these companies use Intel products in their cloud infrastructure, and the Powered by Intel® Cloud Technology logo on their websites certifies the high quality of their services.
Selectel has been a long-time partner of Intel and is the only program participant in Russia. In the majority of servers installed in Selectel’s data centers, you’ll find Intel processors.
Selectel’s Virtual Private Cloud and Cloud Storage services are built on Intel technology, as are VScale and Tehnodom. Thanks to Intel’s latest hardware and software solutions, we can offer our clients high performance, stability, and fault-tolerance.
