Inside IT: Migrating Mission-Critical Systems to Intel Architecture
IT Best Practices: Episode 26 – There was a time when Intel Corporation didn’t run on an Intel platform. Until the early 90s, Intel ran on a proprietary RISC-based platform for its silicon design and manufacturing environments. At the time, it was the only choice that could meet Intel’s need for performance and stability. But Intel processors kept advancing, and by the early 1990s, it made sense for Intel to start migrating over to an Intel-based platform for its mission-critical environments. In this podcast we hear from Gerry Seaman, Senior Integration Engineer for Intel. He discusses the challenges faced transitioning to a new platform for silicon design, manufacturing, and global enterprise resource planning at Intel, and the great benefits derived from the transition.
