Intel gives Euro e-biz Amsterdam high five

Plunges loadsadosh into five countries

Chip giant Intel is to spend "multimillions" fostering e-business in Europe, it said today. The company said it is opening e-biz solution centres in Holland, German, Sweden, France and England which will help create and validate solution stacks running on, err x86 boxes. Three of the five centres will open during the course of the next six months, while the Dutch and French facilities will be announced later on. Rob Eckelmann, general manager of Intel in the European, middle Eastern and African geographies, speaking in Amsterdam, and which we understand is home of another kind of e-business altogether, claimed the centres will speed up the availability of solutions for customers. The English centre will be at Reading, which is, completely coincidentally, the site of a massive server farm Intel is set to open. The sites will let developers, bubble.com firms, Intenet solution providers and others to validate and test their applications, as well as to carry out benchmarketing, Intel said. Intel will also provide tasty snacks based on its own e-biz recipes to both software and hardware providers to pass onto their customers. ®
