Open Magazine - Your strategic guide to Open Source
This week we continue our determined forays to help you figure out what
is really going on with NAS and SAN directions. OEMs seek to dazzle you
with SAN NAS fusion and Microsoft is hardly sitting on the sidelines.
This week's feature on "Cold Fusion" is an openBench Labs analysis of
SAN NAS fusion as we hone in on HP's latest NAS appliance. But that's not
the whole story.
Last week an internal HP memo showed up on NewsForge and triggered a
hot debate on a potential barrage of patent litigation from Microsoft
designed to freeze out open source alternatives. Samba and Apache appeared
to be in the crosshairs. Does the emergence of an Appliance Edition of
Windows Server 2003 mark the first salvo from Redmond?
From promises of less pain in storage networks to declarations of price
and open-architecture liberation in messaging, see what Scalix is
telling corporate buyers who want to bear the fruits and savings of Linux as
an e-mail platform. HP figures in here too as the sire of Scalix
technology, in the name of OpenMail.
