Intel this week announced the availability of its new hardware and softwaretechnology known as vPro, which the chip giant said can cut energy useand costs for enterprise IT shops while giving them more advanced remote management and security control.
Claiming vPro can deliver business IT organizations cost savings ofas much as 40 percent, Intel said the technology would draw on theadvantages of its Core 2 Duo processors to harden security and bolstermanageability when incorporated into products from Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Symantec and other vendors that plan to use the technology. "Very simply, vPro is a change of course in the way businesses andIT managers view and use PCs," said Intel Business Client Group VicePresident and General Manager Robert Crooke, who referred to thesecurity, resource allocation, asset management and uptime advantagesof the firm's new offering.
While enterprise IT users have already been benefiting fromvirtualization, the ability to run "virtual" instances of operatingsystems and software applications on single servers, vPro representsan extension of those virtualization capabilities, Gartner Research Vice President Martin Reynolds told TechNewsWorld.
