Intel To Promote Cloud Computing In Taiwan


 

Otellini also announced that Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom, which is currently building data centers for Taiwan's cloud computing industry, would join Intel's Open Data Center Alliance, which the Santa Clara, Calif.-based company unveiled Wednesday.

"Taiwan’s government has identified the growing cloud computing segment as a paradigm shift and growth opportunity for the IT industry," the company said in a statement. Intel added it would provide Inventec and Wistron technologies for Taiwan's cloud data center infrastructure as part of its pledged support. However, according to a report from Digitimes on Thursday, Taiwan's economics minister Shih Yen-shiang had decided not to attend the Intel event or sign the MOU and instead have his vice economics minister Huang Chung-chiu attend the event without signing the agreement.

In addition, according to "reliable sources" quoted in the Digitimes story and echoed by a number of other sources, Otellini would not be able to meet with the minister during his visit in Taiwan due to the minister's time constraints.
