Cisco Pitches Virtual Switches For Next-Gen Data Centers
InformationWeek – Jan 28, 2008
The Nexus aims to consolidate them all into one (or two, for redundancy), with virtual servers connecting through virtual NICs. Cisco’s interest in expanding the network’s scope is obvious–the Catalyst 6500 platform alone has generated more than $20 billion in revenue over its lifetime. Brocade last week introduced the DCX Backbone, a switch that aims to do much the same as Cisco’s Nexus: consolidate SAN and LAN into a single network, and virtualize the NICs that connect them to virtual servers. But the two companies take a different approach at the physical layer, a function of their different roots. As a router company, Cisco bases its networks on Ethernet: Virtual servers may see a virtual Fibre Channel SAN, but really they’re using an Ethernet cable that’s shared with other network traffic. The Nexus can still use Fibre Channel, but only for connections to legacy storage targets such as disk drives, and only because disks have a slower replacement cycle than servers, so older systems stay in use longer…

The Nexus can still use Fibre Channel, but only for connections to legacy storage targets such as disk drives, and only because disks have a slower replacement cycle than servers, so older systems stay in use longer. Conversely, storage company Brocade uses Fibre Channel for the physical connection to servers, running virtual Ethernet to virtual servers. Brocade expects that it eventually will migrate to Ethernet, too, but that right now Fibre Channel is more reliable.
Hans Reiser Trial: Jan. 28, 2008
San Francisco Chronicle – Jan 28, 2008
The mystery is solved. According to prosecutor Paul Hora, the man who was a co-signer on Nina Reiser’s Chase Bank credit-card account was none other than Herman Lavrentiev, Nina Reiser’s stepfather (married to Irina Sharanova), otherwise known as Hans Reiser’s father-in-law. Public records had his name misspelled as “Layrentiev. “The letters V and Y are often misread. That might explain why Oakland police Officer Michael Weisenberg couldn’t locate a Herman Layrentiev. Other police officers are aware of Herman Lavrentiev, authorities say…
“So everybody judges books by their cover, is that right?” Du Bois asked. The mustachioed Weisenberg grinned and said, “I’m not going to answer that. Reisenberg told Du Bois that police called storage centers in Redwood City, Union City, Hayward, Manteca and Stockton. No one reported any storage units rented by Hans Reiser, Weisenberg said. Also contacted was a Motel 6, an ex-nanny for the Reiser children and MBNA, Bank of America and other financial institutions to see if there had been any activity on Nina Reiser’s accounts, Weisenberg said. Her Citibank card had been used on Sept. 1, 2006 at a Long’s drug store, but her BofA card hadn’t been used since June 2006.
