Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

A year ago From The Register No. 73, April 1998 Dell licensing technology from Intergraph is definitely one for the department of weird coincidences. According to Intergraph, Dell is kicking-off a new line of Intel-based workstations tomorrow, and will be using Intergraph's AGP-based Intense 3D Pro graphics subsystems in them. The announcement has added piquancy in that advance details of Intel's AGP graphics bus and of future Intel products in the workstation arena are most certainly the kind of stuff the Alabama courts have just told Intel to give to Intergraph. Dell, meanwhile, is a known long-term beneficiary of 'most favoured nation' trading status with Intel, so on previous performance could have been expected to go with whatever workstation technology Intel said was a good idea, rather than with stuff from a company that seems to be at war with Intel. But times obviously change, and the Intel-based workstation market commands nice fat margins and is where companies like Dell want to be. Besides, if Intel is (under orders) being friendly to Intergraph, then it's OK for Dell to be, right? ®
