Intel Puts $30 Million in the Cloud

Intel is investing $30 million to expand its research in cloud and embedded computing technologies.

The money will be used by Intel Labs to fund the creation of its Intel Science and Technology Centers (ISTCs) at Carnegie Mellon University. The ISTCs are aimed at providing collaboration between university researchers and Intel. The results of that collaboration are made publicly available via technical journals and open-source software releases, Intel said.

"These new ISTCs are expected to open amazing possibilities," said Justin Rattner, Intel's CTO, in a prepared statement. "Imagine, for example, future cars equipped with embedded sensors and microprocessors to constantly collect and analyze traffic and weather data. That information could be shared and analyzed in the cloud so that drivers could be provided with suggestions for quicker and safer routes."

Intel said researchers will examine technologies that will impact the cloud, such as built-in application optimization, big data analytics and extending cloud capabilities to the edge of the network and client devices.
