Infiniband to boldly go where no IO gone before

But probably a bit later rather than sooner

Pointless bickering about the future of IO is pointless, Paul Santeler, VP of enterprise servers at Compaq told us yesterday. Ultimately, he said, all of the industry players had to get together for the sake of the customer to agree a standard to take people forward with their servers. However, the Infiniband specification, which Intel confidently told us last September would be complete very soon, is unlikely to be completed for another few months, Santeler said yesterday. He waxed lyrically about how Infinibang, when it finally comes out, will allow people to slide in add-on cards into their servers, rather than get their screwdrivers out and take the machines apart. "This isn't a race," said Santeler. "Changing IO is difficult for customers. We're going to fix the things that need fixing." He agreed, however, that it might not be possible to move things forward as fast as the Infiniband people wanted. "Late 2001 is a pretty aggressive schedule," he said. ® * There's a PCI-X conference coming up midmonth at the San Jose conference centre. Go to this site for registration information.
