Intel, Oracle Team on Encryption to Protect Data in Enterpise Cloud Computing, Open Virtualization Standards

Oracle and Intel are now working together on enterprise Could Computing that will use encryption for improved privacy on data, the two companies said at this week’s OracleWorld conference.

Data encryption was mentioned as part of a larger agreement which also calls for collaboration around greater database performance for corporate clouds and mutual work on Web standards for cloud provisioning and management, as well as on the Open Virtual Format (OPF) for porting virtual machine images across platforms.

The collaboration will revolve around Intel Virtualization Technology (VT) and Oracle Grid Computing technologies such as Oracle’s database, Real Application Clusters (RAC), Automatic Storage Management, Application Grid, Enterprise Manager, and VM.
