NT/UNIX Storage Consolidation
Topic Area:
Track: Enterprise Solutions
Topic: Servers
Type:  Breakout Session

Schedule:
11/10/99   01:30 PM     Duration: 90 Min.     Room: 11B

Presenter:
Lynne Glickman
Compaq Computer Corporation  

Abstract:
A major problem facing large enterprise customers is the fact that most have invested in two ‘open’ platforms - both UNIX and Windows NT (as well as legacy/niche proprietary platforms). Windows is usually 'a given' because it is the de facto desktop standard and the emerging infrastructure server standard. UNIX is often entrenched due to incumbency and better high-end Reliability/ Availability/Scalability (RAS) characteristics that are needed for mission-critical applications. As the IT industry evolves, there is a natural tendency towards common infrastructure standards which remove Operating System (OS) duplication. This has already happened with networking around TCP/IP. Compaq is ideally positioned to lead the next cross-platform standard with Storage Area Network (SAN) technology using a fibre channel switch (fcsw) backbone.

Objectives:
Understand Storage Consolidation in regards to NT and UNIX interoperability.
