Please make a standard this time.
Since this will eventually trickle down to the consumers one day, the last thing we need is more petty fights like the DVD+/-RW debate.


Three of the top four server sellers are rallying around InfiniBand, giving a shot in the arm to a high-speed networking technology that's suffered recent setbacks.

IBM, Sun Microsystems and Dell Computer took to the campaign trail this week, announcing that they see an important if scaled-back, role for the technology in their servers. Hewlett-Packard, however, is linking its InfiniBand adoption on widespread customer interest.

IBM in the first quarter of 2003 will begin installing InfiniBand-connected groups of computers for housing databases and performing high-speed calculations. Dell agrees with that approach, while Sun is building InfiniBand into its entire product line.
