Introducing Cloud IdaaS - Intel Cloud SSO

Today we are introducing Intel’s first enterprise focused SaaS offering that brings the best of Intel cloud offering ECA 360 and McAfee Cloud Security Suite product into a multi-tenant offering. The same core functionality that our on-prem product ECA 360 has Single-Sign-On (SSO) for cloud application, User Provisioning and Strong Auth is now supported in a fully flexible as-a-Service offering.

Built on Salesforce.com for Salesforce.com and everyone else

While looking at bringing this offering we found an amazing partner in Salesforce.com, a partners who has been major player in cloud ecosystem and had been offering enterprise grade cloud service for a while. What better choice than Salesforce.com, who have completely transformed the cloud SaaS space with their CRM offering?  They had been trailblazing the SaaS space with amazing agility and now with the increasing adoption of Sales cloud, Chatter, Heroku, AppExchange are transforming into a full cloud platform. The Salesforce platform had been gaining its share of attention with recently announced millionth download and big ISV traction. With it’s almost a decade of running cloud service for the full spectrum of customer base starting from few person org to Fortune 500 companies salesforce has earned the trust in running “Cloud based services that are reliable and trusted” .

Intel hardware ++

Intel Cloud SSO service also brings together the fruits of Intel hardware and software integration to provided enhanced security. The service we are announcing today not only brings the single-sign on capability along with user accounts life cycle management and all traditional ways of supporting strong auth but also introduces support for context aware security. We have integrated Intel Identity Protection technology allowing all Intel platforms that support IPT like the cool Ultrabooks to provide enhanced security while accessing cloud application. We have just gotten started, stay tuned for more exciting hardware/software integrated enhancements in the future, while we do more integration with McAfee services such as Global Threat Intelligence and others.

I don't understand sitmehong, maybe someone can explain I understand that a cloud setup can balance between servers, by that I understand that it balances things like requests and ram usage, but how is the database thing done? For example a visitor logs in to a high traffic site, it can have 1000 servers but it still needs to read the user's user/pass from one db location, right? Or maybe the different servers keeps copies of the database synchronised non-stop? How does this work^ ?
