Amdahl Corporation Announces Strategic Relationship with Intel Corporation; Amdahl and Intel collaborate to develop next-generation Pentium Pro Quad architectures for the enterprise computing environment.SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 1996--Amdahl Corporation, an enterprise computing Refers to information technology in the larger company. See enterprise data and enterprise networking. company, today announced a technology and marketing relationship with Intel Corporation (company) Intel Corporation - A US microelectronics manufacturer. They produced the Intel 4004, Intel 8080, Intel 8086, Intel 80186, Intel 80286, Intel 80386, Intel 486 and Pentium microprocessor families as well as many other integrated circuits and personal computer networking . Amdahl is collaborating with Intel to develop next-generation Pentium Pro The sixth generation of the Intel x86 family of CPU chips. The term may refer to the chip or to a PC that uses it. Introduced in 1995 as the successor to the Pentium, models from 150 MHz to 200 MHz were released. quad architectures as well as future 64-bit implementations. These technologies will be optimized for the enterprise computing environment. The Intel Pentium architecture provides the basic building blocks for the newly announced Amdahl EnVista(TM) family of enterprise servers optimized for the Windows NT (Windows New Technology) A 32-bit operating system from Microsoft for Intel x86 CPUs. NT is the core technology in Windows 2000 and Windows XP (see Windows). Available in separate client and server versions, it includes built-in networking and preemptive multitasking. market. Amdahl and Intel are also collaborating to develop marketing, sales and channel development programs to generate customer demand for the EnVista family of enterprise servers, as announced today in a separate release.
Amdahl is also participating with Intel in the development of a strategic roadmap for high-speed mesh interconnect for highly scalable commercial processing. The two companies have also begun to collaborate on system management issues, including remote diagnostics Vehicle Diagnostics
Vehicle diagnostics enables a mechanic to diagnose the exact mechanical condition of the vehicle and its systems and components. Remote Diagnostics enables to perform such diagnosis without requiring the vehicle to physically be present for checkup. .
"Intel's industry-standard Pentium Pro architecture is the underlying technology that provides robust computing power at economical prices for corporate users, and is an important component of our EnVista family of enterprise servers," said Dave Anderson, chief technical officer at Amdahl Corporation.
"Amdahl is more than just a customer -- we're working together to deliver industrial strength enterprise solutions using the Pentium Pro Processor," said David House, senior vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Servers Group at Intel. "By working together, we expect to create tremendous customer demand for each other's products."
