AMD poaches Dell man to supply information

CHIP FIRM AMD said it has hired the VP of IT away from Dell to act as its chief information officer.

Ahmed Mahmoud had soldiered in the information pit at Dell for 13 no doubt long years.

The Dark Mayor, AMD’s president and COO, said they needed a man of Mahmoud’s experience to scale their infrastructure. AMD uses its own technology to run its IT infrastructure, he said.

That wasn’t always the case. When Dresden first opened there were Intel and Sun machines everywhere. Wonder if the lads are still on allocation for their Barcelonas? ♣
