At the recent Intel Developer Forum 2015 (IDF15) in San Francisco, Ericsson has announced a collaboration with South Korean operator SK Telecom on next generation cloud technologies for data centers.

The collaboration, said Ericsson involves the implementation of Intel® Rack Scale Architecture (RSA)-enabled datacenters as part of the Operator's 2016 plans. 

According to Ericsson, the partnership with SK Telecom will see the development of software-defined datacenters built on Ericsson's HDS 8000 datacenter system based on the RSA architecture, leading to the creation of automated and TCO-efficient hyperscale cloud infrastructure for SK Telecom.

Anders Lindblad, Head of Business Unit Cloud & IP, Ericsson
Cloud technology is rapidly disrupting the ICT industry, and we see IDF15 as a unique opportunity to engage with decision-makers and developers in this critical area.

Alex Jinsung Choi, Chief Technology Officer, SK Telecom
RSA is the key technology to make the cloud extremely scalable, flexible and TCO-efficient. SK Telecom believes this partnership will accelerate SK Telecom's software-defined data center vision to be realized.
