As part of that effort, NTT's cloud infrastructure will be based on Intel® Xeon® processors and utilize software tools such as Intel's Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK), which greatly boosts packet processing performance and throughput, and other optimizations via the Openstack framework to take full advantage of Intel® Architecture capabilities. For example, Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) and Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard-New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) provide advanced performance and hardware-enhanced data security.
Advancements in digital technology are enabling people and business processes to align in completely new ways and helping enterprises create competitive advantages through the rapid creation of new business models. Enterprises are turning to digital technology to quickly shift to more customer-oriented business strategies. To drive these changes, companies need to embrace cloud-native platforms and applications.
