Intel® Data Center Builders Newsletter
Welcome to the New Intel® Data Center Builders!
As we look to the future of the Intel® Builders programs and the expanding array of technologies we optimize and promote, we have decided to make some changes to better reflect a more cohesive program structure. The Intel Data Center Builders program includes all members of Intel Cloud Builders, Intel Fabric Builders, and Intel Storage Builders. In the coming months, you will also notice the program expanding to showcase a broader selection of cross-data center technologies and solutions. Our related Intel Builders programs, Intel® Network Builders and the new Intel® AI Builders, have not changed. Let us know if you have any questions about the new program!
Storage Performance Development Kit (SPDK) Summit
The 2018 SPDK Summit will be held May 15th-16th in San Jose, CA. Meet with other SPDK community members and listen to a series of talks from SPDK users and developers. The second day of the event will be just for developers and will include a hands-on lab, as well as dedicated time for active contributors to tackle design issues and discuss future advancements. More information and registration.
Intel Data Center Builders University
The Intel Data Center Builders University is designed to assist technical professionals in understanding and implementing solutions for enterprise and cloud data centers.
