Intel sees opportunity from Asian data center boom

John Ribeiro, IDG News Service | May 23, 2011
Intel’s sale of chips and related products to data centers is growing by over 20% year-on-year in Asia-Pacific, on the back of increased data center capacity creation in China, South Korea, and Australia, a company executive said.

Intel’s products currently account for less than 3% of overall data center spend, Fedder said.

Intel plans to introduce more capabilities for data centers in the areas of power management and efficiency, and security, Fedder said. He did not provide details. Intel completed the acquisition of security technology vendor McAfee earlier this year.

The current market in Asian data centers is predominantly for computing capacity, Chin said. However as new video sharing sites and other storage-intensive applications proliferate, the demand for storage in data centers will increase, though computing will still be the larger market, he added. For Intel too, revenue from computing is still expected to be the larger part of the business, Fedder said.
