Insight Data Center Transformation Abilities Boosted by New Intel Server Processor

3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor to help Insight accelerate and simplify deployment of cloud and edge-based applications for faster analytics, 5G optimization and enhanced network security

TEMPE, Ariz., April 7, 2021 – With the launch Tuesday of the 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor, Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ:NSIT), the global integrator of Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™ for organizations of all sizes, has gained even more power to help clients accelerate digital transformation and optimize workloads for the cloud, 5G, Artificial Intelligence (AI), high-performance computing, network, security and Internet of Things.

Insight utilizes Intel compute power to help clients transform their data centers to be more efficient, manageable and responsive to changing business needs. The new Intel Xeon Scalable processor is the only data center CPU with built-in AI acceleration, end-to-end data science tools, and an ecosystem of smart solutions. The faster performance, higher density core counts – 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors come with 8 to 40 powerful cores – and ability to build systems with a substantially larger memory footprint simplify Insight app development and ability to architect more efficient data centers from edge to cloud.

“At Insight, we see the intelligent edge as the next wave of computing, and increased memory and power is needed to process data-intensive workloads,” said Juan Orlandini, chief architect, Cloud + Data Center Transformation, Insight. “The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor is optimized for cloud and edge computing; coupled with the greater bandwidth provided by Intel Optane persistent memory 200 series, the added capabilities will accelerate our ability to run applications at the intelligent edge. This gives a tremendous boost as we assist clients in the development and deployment of future-ready solutions from edge to cloud that save time and costs, drive differentiation and manage data smarter to create more meaningful work and customer experiences.”

With workloads increasingly moving to hybrid or multi-cloud environments and to the edge, Insight Cloud + Data Center Transformation consultants prescribe custom solutions to first assess a client’s environment, align workloads to best-fit platforms, test and validate the infrastructure to ensure it meets business requirements and brings value to the business. Insight’s end-to-end capabilities also provide clients a means to broadly scale new applications across cloud and edge devices while ensuring platform reliability through managed cloud services, network security and remote technical support via Insight OneCall™

The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable platform is designed for a range of workloads from edge to enterprise use cases. Built-in acceleration technologies offer enhanced performance for applications to swiftly process data at scale, regardless of location. Advanced security capabilities in the new processors allow businesses to encrypt data much more efficiently, enabling a safer environment for a distributed workforce.

“Intel’s new cloud optimized 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable processors empower Insight’s Cloud and Data Center Transformation solutions team to consolidate legacy infrastructure and develop true hybrid cloud platforms for their customers,” said Greg Ernst, Intel Vice President and General Manager, US Sales.
