Intel builds a private cloud

Intel's research and development group was the first internal segment to increase efficiency with an infrastructure- and platform-as-a-service approach, improving its server utilization rate from 59 percent in the first half of 2006 to 80 percent today. By reducing infrastructure spending and avoiding building new data center facilities, the company expects to save nearly $US200 million. Following this success, Intel decided in early 2009 to build an enterprise private cloud for its office and enterprise groups.
