Cornhusker to arrive this quarter

A senior IBM executive said today that later this quarter, the company will, in conjunction with Microsoft, offer eight node clustering. The project, codenamed Cornhusker, uses elements of RS/6000 SP technology, and will work in conjunction with Windows NT 4.0, said Tikiri Wanduragala, IBM EMEA's Netfinity director. "One machine can be backing up seven other machines," said Wanduragala. "We have an API that pople can programme to." He said Cornhusker was endorsed and supported by Microsoft, but only IBM will sell the solution. "We have no plans to OEM it," he said. ®
