Storage management is a rapidly growing area in IT, and it's an area towards which Linux is moving strongly. One company leading the charge is Pogo Linux, which is planning on showing off some new products and teaching some storage strategies at next week's Enterprise Linux Forum.

The Redmond, Washington-based company is planning on demonstrating new products, including the Serial ATA StorageWare server during the conference, and will also host a panel that addresses Linux and storage issues.

Tim Lee, founder and president of Pogo Linux Inc., will lead a general session panel entitled Linux and Storage Standards, which will take place on Thursday, June 5, 2003 from 3:00pm - 4:30pm at the Forum.

The thrust of the panel will focus on how Linux can be a player in the enterprise storage market, and how it needs to conform to the standards already entrenched in the well-established storage market.

Questions that will be addressed will include what sort of standards are in play, and how well-supported are they in the Linux space? Standards to be discussed will include Intelliband, iSCSI, various flavors of RAID, and Fibre Channel.

The Enterprise Linux Forum will be held from June 5-6 at the Santa Clara (California) Convention Center, with a pre-show workshop day taking place on June 4. For more information on the conference and to register online, please visit the Forum Web site.
