SearchEnterpriseLinux.com: Seeing gains made by Linux in the corporate application clustering segment, Microsoft came on strong with its own cluster offerings. But is a Windows cluster strong enough? Clustering expert Bjorn Skare thinks not.
Skare, president and CEO of Linux cluster software vendor Scali Inc., Marlborough, Mass., defines the differences between Linux and Windows clusters in this pre-LinuxWorld interview. He also offers tips for deploying clusters in mixed Windows/Linux environments and names some mistakes IT shops make in deploying clusters.
Scali is demonstrating a new, major upgrade to its Scali Manage and Scali MPI Connect suites at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo.
