Intel today held the latest installment of its quarterly ‘server day’ event in Dubai, UAE, at which it updated both the industry and UAE end users about its latest line up of enterprise-level server platforms. Presentations at the event by Intel spokespeople focused on the company’s multi-core innovations and its ‘T’s’ - in other words a collection of technologies embedded into microprocessor and platform silicon, representing what the firm claims is an evolution in the way computer platforms are designed and used. “Intel’s solid platform line up provides our enterprise users with extensive choice in end-to-end solutions, from mail servers to databases to supercomputers,” said Ferhad Patel, Intel’s marketing development manager in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa. “For over a decade, Intel has provided small and large businesses in the Middle East with high-performance, reliable server technology. Today’s event allowed us to show our continuous commitment to technology innovations and to inform our customers about the latest platforms that bring them the power and capability to help us meet their evolving computing needs.” With regional companies considering migration to 64-bit computing to both deploy 64-bit software (such as the soon-to-be-launched Windows XP 64) and improve the performance of their 32-bit applications, Intel’s portfolio of products provides two server platforms to ease the transition and meet the requirements of SMBs and enterprises: Intel’s Xeon processor family is designed for front-end applications, Web servers and mid-tier medium-sized databases, while its Itanium 2 CPUs are designed for the most data-intensive workloads. Both are now 64-bit-ready today. Intel’s server day was also aimed at updating guests about the company’s roadmap and innovations. Presentations included information about Intel’s plans for multi-core processors - the company currently has over 15 multi-core processor designs underway across all platform categories - and plans to rapidly increase the number of cores in future processor architectures.
