Intel targets gov't business with new subsidiary

Intel Federal will look to help government agencies with high-performance computing

Intel has formed a subsidiary charged with growing the company's business relationship with the U.S. government, with the new organization's initial focus on high-performance computing, the company said.

Intel Federal, with offices in Oregon, California and Washington, D.C., will look to help the U.S. Department of Energy and other agencies build high-performance computing systems, including exascale systems, Intel said. Intel offers clustering software, Xeon processors and other products aimed at high-performance computing needs.

Until now, Intel has sold to the U.S. government through OEMs, said spokesman Chuck Mulloy. He didn't have government sales figures available for Intel, because the company has not sold directly to government agencies.

Intel launched the new subsidiary Tuesday. Dave Patterson, former president and CEO of video networking vendor Optelecom-NKF and of Siemens Government Services, will serve as president of Intel Federal.

Intel hasn't yet announced the specific products the subsidiary will pitch to agencies, although the company's Xeon processors are targeted to high-performance computing, Mulloy said. The subsidiary will be open to working with all government agencies as it ramps up, he said.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
