Security for virtualized datacentres

UK-based chip distributor Memec Group has signed a pan-European agreement with Intel to handle the processor giant's embedded controller and flash memory products. Memec, which was established in 1974 and operates in 36 countries worldwide, will distribute the Intel products in all 12 of its European territories; in the UK, Thame Components will carry the Intel kit. In an article published in Electronics Weekly, Memec chairman and CEO, Dick Skipworth, said: "We have been looking to add a strong processor line." Intel's embedded Pentium chips, i960 and StrongArm processors, flash memory, networking and interface devices and the Chips & Technologies graphics products acquired by Intel, are all covered by the deal. "Intel was looking for the focus we can offer," Skipworth said. "In addition we have a demand creation strategy and an excellent technology support and service base." Memec also has 26 field engineers across Europe whose work will also be part of the deal. Memec has said these engineers are focused on Intel product and that as it increases Intel related business the number of engineers will also grow. Memec will not hold Intel stock, instead this will come from Munich-based Atlas Services, the logistics arm of Veba Electronics, Memec group's parent company.
