Storage cooperation ratchets ahead

The Supported Solutions Forum (SSF), an effort to address the nagging difficulties getting storage systems and storage networks to work together, has qualified its first collection of storage networking products. The certified hardware and software is from Compaq Computer, IBM, Brocade Communications Systems, Emulex, QLogic and JNI. The SSF, part of the Storage Networking Industry Association is trying to ease interoperability problems that analysts say have held back the industry of storage area networking.
