Releasing Container Bare Metal Ref. Architecture v2.0 to Drive Cloud Native Deployments
The forward-looking Container Bare Metal Reference Architecture (BMRA) has been used over the past year by Intel partners to advance Cloud Native developments and early deployments. We are excited to release the BMRA v2.0 guide which provides instructions on how to automatically build, provision and validate a Cloud Native Kubernetes (K8s) cluster using 2nd Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, Intel® Ethernet 800 Series NICs , Intel platform technologies, and open source telemetry, security and K8s software. Version 2.0 introduces the concept of Reference Architecture Flavors per network location where each flavor is designed, optimized and validated to meet the specific requirements of various network locations and their associated workloads.

Intel® Network Builders Announces the inclusion of Intel® CloudU
Intel Network Builders is excited to integrate the Intel CloudU program within the Intel Network Builders University. Intel CloudU courses will give you in-depth knowledge of the cloud industry—the players, the components that serve as building blocks, the architectures, the services, and how they all tie together. This training describes the key areas an enterprise must consider before they move to the cloud and helps describe the differences between public and private cloud computing from a workload perspective. The Intel CloudU program is now available for inclusion in partner customer learning pathways. Contact your account manager to learn more about Custom Pathways.
To learn more about how clouds powered by Intel® technologies deliver reliable, scalable, workload-optimized performance across enterprise applications, visit us here.

Intel Speaks to Delivering Kubernetes Innovation at Kubecon
Intel has been a critical contributor, advancing Kubernetes Networking technologies with the CNCF open source community and enabling CNF evolution to meet the needs of performance-sensitive deployments. Two of our leading technologists-- Dave Cremins and Kilian Muldoon, have showcased our innovation for the Kubernetes community. Dave presented a session at Kubecon 2020 that focused on innovations for Enhancing Kubernetes Networking with Smart Nics. Dave also shared insight via a new blog post: Enhancing Kubernetes Networking. Killian has delivered a session covering the methods and values of Telemetry Aware Scheduling earlier this year at Kubecon EU. Please learn from Killian about his professional journey and Boost K8s Performance with Telemetry Aware Scheduling.
Intel was recently recognized as a key contributor in a winning project showcased at the TM Forum Digital Transformation World Series conducted virtually October 7 – November 12, 2020.
