Storage Magazine;Dec2004, Vol. 3 Issue 10, p10
This section presents news affecting the computer storage sector in the U.S., as of December 2004. Apparently, missing tapes are just some of the unwanted surprises users can face when recovering data from a virtual tape library. On the other hand, Atto Technology announced the development of its MAC iSCSI software initiator, which it couples with its iPBridge products. The initiator lets users attach existing Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) storage to an Ethernet Internet Protocol-based network. Meanwhile, Maxtor announced that Paul Tufano, president, chief executive officer and acting chief financial officer, has resigned. Such a move follows the resignation of Michael Bless as chief financial officer. On the other hand, the T11 committee of the International Committee for Information Technology Standards selected Cisco's implementation of virtual storage area networks (SAN) as the standard for deploying virtual fabrics. Such is defined as the ability to segment a single, physical SAN fabric into many logical, independent SAN.
