NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Intel (INTC) was gaining 0.7% to $34.83 Thursday after announcing a new collaboration with Dell, Emerson (EMR) , and Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) to create a new industry standard for data center management, analysis, and security.

The four companies are working to create Redfish, a new specification for data centers that will help improve scalability and expand data access and analysis. The technology will also help its users cut costs and enable remote management options.

Intel and the other companies involved are working with standards bodies to speed up the development process. When Redifsh is completed the companies will submit Redfish to the Distributed Management Task Force for approval by the Scalable Platform management Forum, and will make it publicly available once approved.
