Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

A steering committee has been set up to ensure compatible fibre channel clustering across varying operating environments. Initiated by the Fibre Channel Community (FCLC), the steering group will address the need for an affordable, interoperable open clustering technology. Clustering has become more widely known since the introduction of Microsoft's clustering solution for NT. Dave Guerrero, chairman of the steering committee, explains: "In a formal context clustering is a group of servers and workstations, linked and managed together to function as a logical computing unit by sharing processing and storage resources. The high bandwidth, low latency and networking capabilities of Fibre channel make it an excellent cluster interconnect technology." The committee plans to present its recommendations to the ANSI committee responsible for governing the Fibre channel specification. The first meeting is scheduled for August 24 in Huntingdon , California. Speakers from IBM, Microsoft and Novell will present information for discussion.
