Google and Intel team up to push enterprise cloud adoption


Google and Intel have entered into a strategic alliance to support and accelerate enterprise adoption of the cloud. The alliance will focus on technology integrations and joint market education efforts.

The duo will explore technology solutions for enterprise customers in the areas of Kubernetes, machine learning, IoT and security, combining Google Cloud software capabilities with Intel’s advanced hardware.


  • The alliance will focus on optimizing Kubernetes for Intel architecture to improve workload capabilities, including virtual network performance and prioritization of shared resources.
  • Accelerating TensorFlow performance on Intel processors, for example by allowing TensorFlow to leverage all CPU cores and vector lanes for improved parallelism, integrating high-performance libraries such as the Math Kernel library (MKL) into TensorFlow, and optimizing memory allocation and data layer operations across a range of topologies.
  • Creating a secure platform for connecting Intel’s IoT edge devices to Google Cloud Platform (GCP), where the data can be analyzed to inform better decisions.
  •  Enhancing security integrations between Intel hardware and GCP infrastructure that will further improve security for enterprise customers.

Along with new joint cloud solutions Google and Intel will focus on developing technical education and market development materials that support the IT practitioners.
