Intel wants to reconstruct whole data centers with its chips and pipes
Analysis If Intel really wanted to, it could build your entire data center infrastructure with just about all of the components necessary excepting disk drives, main memory, and operating systems for the servers, storage, and switches. And with a stretch, its Wind River Linux could probably cover that last bit. But that is not the Chipzilla plan for the glass house. Rather, Intel wants to sell an increasingly diverse set of components to those who assemble gear and thereby double up its revenues and profits from the data center.
