On The Road: Seagate Joins Intel To Help Resellers Create Powerful Technology Solutions

Seagate is joining Intel on the road to help technology resellers across the world create powerful solutions for their customers. Thousands of solution providers have been invited to the Intel Channel Conference (ICC), including members of the Seagate Partner Program, to benefit from Intel's training program and Seagate's new-technology showcase. Seagate will highlight two groundbreaking technologies: the new Barracuda ATA V, the industry's first Serial ATA hard drive; and the Seagate Cheetah 15K.3, the industry's only third-generation 15,000-rpm enterprise hard drive and the world's fastest. Seagate will also offer solution providers the opportunity to engage with engineering specialists at the Company's Design Service Centers (DSC), which offer a full range of research and development, design, and testing services that help Seagate customers transform innovative product ideas into reliable storage-driven products.

ICC is a targeted training road show specifically designed to educate system builders on the latest product launches, technology announcements, and Intel program benefits. Over the past several years, thousands of Intel's technology resellers have attended ICC at more than 280 events around the world.

Resellers will get a first-hand view of innovative new products - from the new world of Intel- and Seagate-powered Serial ATA solutions, to technology that makes the mobile workforce possible, to the connectivity that brings customers higher productivity. Attendees can expect valuable sessions that discuss building, selling and servicing systems that deliver real value. Myriad topics include new technologies and innovation, increased productivity with desktop computers, mobile computing and wireless LAN, optimizing Intel(r) processor-based servers, and delivering to new markets for server-based solutions.

"Intel is working with Seagate and other leading technology providers at the Intel Channel Conference to help system builders achieve a competitive advantage through in-depth knowledge of new technologies, products and programs, and the opportunities they bring," said Willy Agatstein, general manager of Intel's Reseller Products Group. "With training and sales tools specifically designed for the demanding needs of System Builders, this season's Intel Channel Conference delivers more product training, more access to Intel representatives, more sales tools, and more fun."

ICC Fall 2002 runs through November in cities throughout the world. For more details and to register for ICC, please visit http://intel.seminars.net/na/
