ERM: A path to server coexistence?

September 2005
CED;Sep2005, Vol. 31 Issue 9, p8
Trade Publication
The article focuses on a new technology that aims and claims to give operators the virtual keys to the on demand future: the ability to mix and match a wide range of server types and brands on the same system. That newcomer, the Edge Resource Manager (ERM), also manages the use of edge bandwidth-whether it's for video-on-demand or some other type of service. Perhaps the more forward-looking element for ERM is its ability to allow operators to run more than one type (and brand) of servers on their networks. Under today's networks, a video server from one vendor and the server from another can't share resources on the network.
