The server has various sub-assemblies such as a processor, a server card, a chassis, a memory disk, among others.
He was looking to make his own server board and make a functioning server, the server board needed to interface with the processor made by Intel.
To make such a compatible server board, it was necessary to access the reference design files and the simulation files of the Intel server boards.
However, according to Velankani, Intel refused to provide such files.
An investigation was carried out in this regard by the investigation service of CCI, the director general (DG), which concluded that Intel had not refused access to any file.
The set of files provided by Intel was sufficient for the informant to develop his server maps, according to the advice of the informant’s own experts.
The CEO noted that the company had access to significant resources prepared by Intel for the design of a server board.
The regulator said that “the Commission is of the opinion that there has been no deliberate denial of a required file (reference design file or simulation file) by the PO to the informant”.
As a result, since Intel did not deny the informant access to the required reference design files and / or simulation files, no abuse of dominance can be attributed to it, according to the order. .
