Industry Group Analyzes Enterprise Storage and Grid Computing Directions

Filed under
News

The Globus Consortium - a Grid computing industry group driven by Cisco, HP, IBM, Intel, Nortel, Sun and Univa - today released the July issue of the Globus Consortium Journal (http://www.globusconsortium.org/journal).

Highlights include:

* GGF Data Group director David Martin shares his views about where the complexities reside in today's storage systems, and how the Grid community has historically viewed "data" versus "storage."

* Is the concept of "Grid Storage" legitimate, or is it just fuzzy, vendor 'marketecture'? Leading storage industry analyst Jon Toigo separates fact from fiction.

* Easier access to information assets is driving today's enterprise SOA and storage virtualization trends, but Grid is still juggling the difference of data and storage in the enterprise world versus the research / science world. Dave Pearson, Grid Program Director in the UK at Oracle, explains.

* The University of Edinburgh's Neil P. Chue Hong explains how the OGSA-DAI project is making an increasing scope of enterprise-class storage and data systems available to participate in Grid environments.

* Univa's new CEO says Grid isn't just about reducing IT operations cost / complexity -- it's about enabling competitive advantage and time to market with new innovation.
