New hybrid storage solutions

Intel Developer Forum Intel customers, including Compaq, will introduce eight-way SMP systems in April, the company confirmed today. John Miner, senior executive of the server group at Intel US, claimed that 3.5 million "real servers" shipped in 1998, worldwide. The growth rate for SMP systems, from two-way to eight-way, showed that CAGR for Intel was 38 per cent and only two per cent for non-Intel vendors. "The Internet is driving the growth rate," said Miner. "There is a whole new category of applications." And, Miner claimed, one of the big forces driving the SMP market are small to medium sized businesses. "The Internet is an equaliser," said Miner. "It gives small businesses the chance to significantly expand their reach." Profusion-Corollary executives were not at the Intel Developer Forum, said Miner, because they were too busy working on the technology. Miner said that large corporations now realised they did not have to use so-called legacy systems and the most enterprising were basing their businesses on x86-based servers. ®
