Announced just one day ahead of the annual Intel Developer Forum, SoftLayer is being equipped with bare metal servers powered by Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT), providing extra hardware monitoring and security controls down to the microchip level.

Aimed at large enterprises (i.e. healthcare, financial services, etc.) and government agencies answering to audits and compliance regulation, the extra security is designed to further protect sensitive workloads, identity management, and incident response.

Intel highlighted a few compliance standards that TXT is designed for, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).

The partnership also marks a first for all parties involved being that SoftLayer will be the first cloud vendor to sell bare metal cloud servers deployed with Intel monitoring and security tools.

IBM acquired SoftLayer for roughly $2 billion during the early summer of 2013, fueling Big Blue in the cloud horse race against the likes of Amazon Web Services, Google and Microsoft Azure.

Since then, SoftLayer has been instrumental in launching services geared around development of the IBM's Watson platform, software-defined storage and expanding IBM's marketplace of partners.
