San Francisco: One of the greatest challenges faced by most enterprises is to find the right cloud infrastructure services provider to meet their business needs. This becomes even more difficult when you have to distinguish between similar offerings from a range of different service providers.

Seeing this critical requirement, Intel has announced a new program called the Intel Cloud Finder Program. The program will help enterprises find cloud infrastructure as a service providers across six dimensions—security,   usability, quality, availability, technology, and business.

More information can be found on a website dedicated for the cause.

Around 16 service providers have already joined this program, which include the likes of rackspace, savvis, virtustream, Atos, etc.

The website has a search tool to help enterprises quickly zero down to cloud service provider they really need based. The search tool allows the user to choose the right service provider by selecting from a range of criteria listed on the website.

So for instance, if you're from the healtcare industry, looking for a cloud service provider in the APAC region, who offers cloud services on a pay-as-you-go model, with an open virtualization format type of development support, on standard APIs along with a web-based control panel, you can do that on this website.

The announcement was made at the Intel Developer Forum 2012 in San Francisco on Sep 12, 2012 by Diane Bryant, VP and GM of Intel's Datacenter and Connected Systems Group.
