Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

You, and Andy Grove, might think this site is anti-Intel. We're not. We're just against paranoia. A couple of weeks ago we tried to firm up a story that Profusion (Corollary) technology was late but talked to an HP geezer and an IBM boy who told us different. Now the proof has emerged. Intel Profusion technology is on time and it must be so because Data General, the SMP majors, has announced it. Time was that DG used ALR to make its SMP machines and so we always got forward knowledge on Intel's plans. But that's all over now. We dunno who makes DG machines but it's probably some Intel outfit in Taiwan, for all we know... DG said its Aviion AV8900, a high end entreprise NT server is bang on time and it uses the latest Profusion chipset from Intel, which will support up to eight PIII/Xeon chips. There's also full fibre channel disk arrays. DG says it will be available late summer. That means early September, as IBM and HP told us four months ago... When we talked to HP three weeks ago about this matter, he said corporations will not be interested until September this year, anyway. Try a search on Profusion and see what IBM had to say, wayback. Intel's chipset is, of course late. But we're used to writing stories like that here on The Register... ®
