Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The Register has learned that Intel has a data mining application, close to release, which will further exacerbate rifts between it and Microsoft. Intel is developing data mining and slicing software, codenamed Sonoma. Following fast on yesterday’s Miramar news, the further secret development is bound to alarm Intel’s close partner, Microsoft. Sources said yesterday that Intel has, in its labs, a three dimensional graphical user interface – codenamed Miramar. The same sources said the GUI does not compete with Microsoft NT or any other operating system front end. Sonoma, the data mining application, uses a graphical user interface to present data on the World Wide Web. Unlike Miramar, product is close to completion and will be licensed to Intel’s partners. It will be out by the end of the year and Intel will license it to database vendors, the source said. No one at Intel is prepared to either confirm or deny the existence of the software, which depends on Katmai extra instructions to function in the way that the software developers intend. ®
