Vision Solutions Chief Scientist Dave Brown to Speak at COMMON Spring 2006
Vision Solutions, a leading high availability solution provider to the Global 5000, has announced that Dave Brown, chief scientist, will present "High Availability and System i5 Server Virtualization Trends" at the upcoming COMMON Spring 2006 IT Education Conference & Expo that is being held in Minneapolis, March 26-30. Brown's session will be on March 30th at 11 AM.

Brown will provide insight and perspective gleaned from his 30 years of experience developing and designing software applications for the midrange market, including his role as principal architect of the award-winning Vision Suite software first announced in 1996. His remarks will focus on an in-depth discussion of the need for coordination between multiple operating systems; techniques for managing availability in an enterprise, coordinating the status of Windows, Linux, AIX and OS/400 Clusters; and central point management of multiple servers.

Several developments in System i5 have driven the need for enterprise class high availability and the management of multiple platforms through a single user interface. In addition to i5/OS, System i5 supports Linux, AIX and Windows; this requires the management of multiple partitions, independent auxiliary storage pools and SAN disk drives. High availability actions in this new virtualized environment require coordination between actions on different operating systems so that dependency relationships on devices databases and applications are maintained. Brown will review these requirements and highlight the steps Vision Solutions has been taking to provide a uniform, coordinated interface that utilizes IBM initiatives such as autonomics and the virtualization engine to manage high availability in this complex environment.
