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.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
