Intel Acquires Sarvega To Bolster Software, Enterprise Platform Strategies 


SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 17, 2005 - Intel Corporation today announced it
has acquired Sarvega Inc., a leader in XML solutions. The acquisition
combines Intel's proven hardware capabilities with Sarvega's underlying XML
software technology and engineering expertise. Sarvega's networking
solutions optimize XML performance and Web services on enterprise networks
providing businesses with improved reliability, security and flexibility to
better serve and respond to their customers. 
XML is an industry standard language used to describe data independent of
software or hardware that simplifies business to business transactions and
facilitates the seamless exchange of information between individuals or
businesses. Demand for XML-based solutions is growing as it promises to
address interoperability within the data center and across multiple
institutions, including security and network traffic routing needs not
currently addressed by IP-based networks. Industry analysts have projected
that XML-based Internet and corporate network traffic will grow from 15
percent in 2004 to almost 50 percent in 2008.**. 
Enterprise IT managers are stressing the need for XML solutions that can be
deployed across the data center in a transparent and ubiquitous manner. This
acquisition supports Intel's enterprise platform strategy as it facilitates
the development of integrated platform solutions that can help to meet this
customer requirement.
Sarvega is a privately held company based in Oakbrook Terrace, Ill. that
delivers XML solutions to enterprise IT managers. The company's offerings
accelerate the processing of XML-workloads, increase network and XML
firewall security, and reduce system management overhead.
"With the accelerating acceptance of Service Oriented Enterprise solutions
in the marketplace, our customers are demanding greater performance with
respect to XML processing," said Richard Wirt, corporate vice president,
senior Intel Fellow and general manager of Intel's Software and Solutions
Group. "This acquisition supports our strategy to deliver added value to
Intel's computing platforms with products that will help our customers
implement end-to-end XML solutions." 
Service Oriented Enterprise solutions are based on standard Web service
protocols and software building blocks which deliver complementary,
interoperable services to enhance business to business communication
"Sarvega has developed leading XML technology and we are involved in some of
the largest XML deployments in the world," said Christopher Darby, Sarvega
president and CEO. "Our XML technology is an ideal complement to Intel's
strength in providing hardware-based solutions."
The current Sarvega product line will continue to be available and be fully
supported. Sarvega employees will join the Intel Software and Solutions
Group. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Intel, the world's largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of
computer, networking and communications products. Additional information
