Francisco, Sept. 26, 2006 — Intel Corporation today described the
significant technical challenges that need to be addressed if
, from personal devices to giant data centers, is to keep up
with increasing demand by consumers and businesses for Internet-based
software, services and media-rich experiences.

In a speech today at the
Intel Developer Forum, Intel Senior Fellow and Chief Technology Officer
Justin Rattner said that during the next decade online software services,
hosted by mega data centers with more than a million servers, will allow
people to access personal data, media and applications from any
high-performance device to play photo-realistic games, share real-time video
and do multimedia data mining. This new usage model will challenge the
industry to deliver the one trillion floating-point operations-per-second (teraFLOPs)
of performance and terabytes of bandwidth.
