Storage systems will move to Linux, so the software part of the system can keep pace with falling hardware costs, according to vendors flocking to the LinuxWorld show in San Francisco this week.

Meanwhile, Veritas and a bunch of other vendors offered products and deals aimed at making Linux storage more convincingly enterprise-grade.
