Security for virtualized datacentres

A senior Intel PR executive today confirmed that the company is still working on a solution for the problem with Rambus memory that caused it to withdraw its motherboards a month back. Howard High, in charge of Intel public relations at its HQ in Santa Clara, said that his firm was still ironing out one or two problems but was still on target to deliver a solution by the end of the quarter. Intel has told its PC OEMs, including Dell, that they will be able to go with the i820 chipset in the second or third week of November, as already reported here. But the i820 motherboards and chipsets Intel will deliver are unlikely to support more than two RIMMs on board, according to our information. High said that Intel will make an announcement about the i820 chipset shortly. Meanwhile, a second tier US PC manufacturer said that Intel was expected to make an announcement very soon. He said that he had been unable to contact his local technical representatives, and that pattern usually meant that an announcement was imminent. ®
