Security for virtualized datacentres

IBM, in conjunction with its Project Monterey partners SCO and Sequent said that the first initial tests of Monterey for IA-64 have been concluded successfully. In a separate development, Compaq also joined in the project (see story Compaq to endorse Monterey). IBM is licensing AIX technology to SCO to include in UnixWare. But although the partners may be happy with Monterey to date, final 64-bit code will not see the light of day until early in 2001. Meanwhile, a senior IBM executive said that engineers at the company have now resolved endian problems. Said Tikiri Wanduragala, an IBM EMEA executive: "We have 70 IBM programmers on the Monterey team. The biggest project they had was to size the coe. They've fixed the Endian problem. They've figured out how to make an Endian neutral model." ®
