The platform, which will be a pay-as-you-go service, consists of a server, catalogue of pre-packaged small business applications from a broad range of software providers, and Intel-developed software.

“We developed the Intel AppUp Small Business Service to build a foundation on which the industry can innovate and provide small business customers with a more convenient, secure, and high-performance experience,” said Bridget Karlin, general manager, Intel Hybrid Cloud. 

The Intel AppUp Small Business Service’s innovations include use of a subscription-based delivery model for software applications. Intel-developed software activates, deactivates, and then tracks the customer’s usage of those applications on a platform that is secured using Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT) in Intel Xeon processors.
