The list will provide information on products that have passed a suite of compliance and interoperability tests. The first list will be published in the second quarter of 2002 and will be updated after ITA quarterly plugfests to reflect the most up-to-date information as products and testing suites evolve.
The announcement came at the Fall 2001 InfiniBand Solutions Conference, which is being held in Los Angeles this week. The two-day conference includes a day of training for IT managers and a day of panels hosted by industry veterans and panelists from across the InfiniBand community.
Getting IT managers up to speed on InfiniBand is very important, said Allyson Klein, InfiniBand marketing manager for Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC). She said data center managers from organizations such as Merrill Lynch & Co. Inc., Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and the University of Washington
are out in numbers at the show.
Moira Gunn, host of National Public Radios broadcast, "TechNation: Americans & Technology," delivered the opening keynote, and around 30 member companies are exhibiting their InfiniBand products and demos.
