A senior executive at Quantum has said it is delaying the introduction of fibre channel products because of incompatibilities between different offerings.
John Barnes, regional director of Quantum Europe, said today: "We do have a programme for fibre channel but also a programme for Ultra SCSI 3. This is a market issue - we're backing both horses. I'm not sure a standard for fibre channel has been sorted out yet. Not everyone's fibre channel works together."
That meant, said Barnes, that corporations were reluctant to adopt fibre channel devices and technologies for fear of finding themselves with conflicting kit. "There may well be a case for fibre channel between boxes but SCSI might be inside the box," he concluded.
