Intel Capital Invests $24 Million Into 7 Startups, One of Them is Gaikai

Intel Capital, Intel Corporation's global investment organization, yesterday announced seven investments to drive continued innovation across the software ecosystem. The deals total over $24 million and include new investments in enterprise cloud automation software provider DynamicOps; building management software provider enLighted, real-time analytics provider Guavus; Platform-as-a-Service (Paas) for commerce company IP Commerce; and social games analytics service provider Swrve New Media.

Intel Capital also recently closed follow-on investments in predictive analytics company Revolution Analytics and cloud-based media streaming service Gaikai.

In Intel’s Media Briefing at the CEA Line Shows Intel said they want to promote ultrabooks. Ultrabooks are thin and light almost like netbooks, but pack the power near a gaming PC. One example of Intel’s idea of an ultrabook, from their booth at the CEA Line Shows, would be Apple’s MacBook Air.

An investment in Gaikai would mean that Intel sees Gaikai as necessary for the growth of these ultrabooks.
