Intel looks to be getting into the ISP business. At an analyst briefing here on Friday, Intel executive vice president and general business manager for the new business group, Gerry Parker, announced that the chip giant will be getting into Internet hosting services.
The move positions Intel to compete with companies such as IBM Global Services, officials said.
The scale and scope of Intel's data centres could range from small centres with roughly 2000 servers in place to larger centres with 5500 servers.
The first Internet Data Service will be in the US.
