IBM To Peddle PolyServe Clustering Software
IBM To Peddle PolyServe Clustering Software

IBM will resell PolyServe software including its Matrix Server shared data clustering software for Linux and Windows.

IBM plans to push the software through its direct channel to its eServer BladeCenter and xSeries customers in the US.

The deal is supposed to meet growing demand for clustering products for enterprise NAS, Unix migration and server and storage consolidation.

Matrix Server is designed to let enterprise data centers cluster and manage up to 16 xSeries or BladeCenter servers running Linux or Windows as a single, highly available system attached to a SAN. It lets all servers in a cluster simultaneously read and write shared data on IBM TotalStorage, DS4000, DS6000, DS8000 and ESS products and on other SANs.

Separately, PolyServe launched a software clustering product for Oracle databases running on Linux called Oracle High Availability Solution for Linux.

The new offering includes high-availability software, cluster file system optimized for Oracle, a centralized cluster management console, application management, Oracle I/O monitoring, multi-path I/O capability and centralized I/O monitoring. It's designed to support up to 16 servers running Linux and multiple Oracle database workloads.

If you are just starting out with a SAN or planning a new SAN, iSCSI is worth investigating.
