Reducing security risks from open source software

Intel Developer Forum Paul Otellini, senior VP of Intel's server architecture group, this morning demonstrated the depth of the cunning plan Internetzilla is developing to secure its place in the coming revolution. Otellini claimed that a new class of killer applications was emerging, based on XML, which he said formed the basis of the Third Generation of Web Sites. (These killer applications are probably a little like Tasmanian Devils, which can bite you on the ankle and reduce you to tears. Perhaps a better metaphor is the piranha). He said that the basis of the growth of the US technology was PC technology. "The bulk of the growth of the US economy is down to PCs," he said. "Europe has decided that productivity gains have been based on information technology and Europe has decided to move, country by country to that model." Intel now accrues fifty per cent (a half) of its revenues online, and already does 100 per cent (a whole) of its business over the Internet in some countries of the world. The server technologies Intel is developing, including four way and eight way servers based on IA-32 and the future Itanium platforms, will provide the mid tier infrastructure of the rush to the Web, said Otellini. He claimed that Intel now had a leadership position on eight way server technology, and that this technology was beginning to meet the performance of non-Intel architectures. "The real challenge for us is moving up to the back end," said Otellini. By this he means engaging the SAPs and the like of this world. Otellini said that Intel had 30 designs for the Itanium in progress, and is already shipping 1000s of prototypes to operating system vendors, application vendors and others. Intel Capital is continuing to invest in companies to help it achieve its aim of recruiting the SAPs and Baan users of this world. ® Intel Developer Forum: Spring 2000 Full coverage
