SAN MATEO (08/14/2000) - Sun Microsystems Inc. has teamed with Linuxcare Inc. to create a Linux fail-over driver that supports the Sun StorEdge T3 array.
Businesses running Linux-powered servers can use the fail-over driver to attach storage subsystems comprised of two or more T3 arrays, said David Sifry, co-founder and CTO of Linuxcare. If one T3 fails, operations are transferred to the working T3, with zero downtime. The open-sourced fail-over driver will be available for download, free of charge, beginning August 15, Sifry said. The download port is at www.open-projects.linuxcare.com/t3.
