InfiniBand gets software boost

Backers of the InfiniBand high-speed networking technology have advanced some software abilities of the technology. InfiniBand chipmaker Mellanox has demonstrated IBM's DB2 database and Websphere e-commerce software running on a collection of servers connected by InfiniBand, the company said at the Intel Developer Forum. And Lane15, which makes software to manage all the devices connected to InfiniBand networks, demonstrated "failover" of its manager software, in which one copy of the management software takes over if the primary copy fails. Companies hope InfiniBand will be used to tie together servers and storage systems in high-speed networks within corporate data centers stuffed with computing equipment. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
