IBM releases Linux storage software

IBM released software on Tuesday to make it easier for Linux computer administrators to control some IBM storage systems. Big Blue released a Linux version of its Global Array Manager, software for installing, configuring, monitoring and managing "arrays" of hard disks connected to a server. The software supports PCI Hot Plug, a technology that lets people remove a faulty array controller card from a server's PCI slot without shutting the server down, IBM said. The company already has versions of the array manager software for Windows, Novell NetWare and other Intel computer operating systems.
