Happenings Around Storage - July 2008

- Happenings Around the Storage Community – July 2008
- It's summer time and I'm spending a bunch of time thinking about hiking and staying cool. My home town of Denver finished the month of July with 19 consecutive days above 90 degreed Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius). That way too hot for my comfort.
- While we here in Colorado are sweating because of the heat, many folks around the community have been pulling away and delivering some exciting accomplishments. As always, I've been trying to catalog the accomplishments on our Status Page, but let's recap.
- Tom Haynes announced the availability of the latest version of the pNFS code as based on the draft 19 version of the IETF standard
- Project Celeste - a Sun Microsystems Laboratories research project investigating techniques for building a distributed, master-less, peer-to-peer, byzantine and fault-tolerant mutable object store is live (9-July)
- OpenSolaris mega_sas driver project is now Live! The driver support the LSI MegaRAID SAS HBA. (18-July)
- The guys from the FCoE team have posted the latest packages and source on their project page. This is a great addition to the COMSTAR infrastructure. (30-July)
- We also have a really cool event planned for just before SNIA's Developer Conference. More on that next week.
- Let's close this post with a request. Are you interested in helping the storage community with some translations? We are looking for some help localizing some blog posts and some of our community web pages. If you are interested in helping out, leave me a comment and let me know.
