RAID Storage / SCSI and Fibre Channel

Greg Schulz, MTI

Tuesday, July 28, 7:00-9:00 pm
College of DuPage Room K-161


This meeting will consist of two 45 minute discussions. The first will be "What to Look for When Considering RAID Storage" which will cover: performance, availability, scalability, redundancy, cross platform/multi-platform connectivity along with compatibility issues with RAID solutions.

The second discussion will be "SCSI and Fibre Channel: Compare and Contrast" which will profile the two interface technologies: where they are today, where they will be going in the future, and the advantages and disadvantages of each. These presentations were done at InfoStor'98 in San Jose by Greg, which were considered two of the better presentations at this conference.
