Hewlett Packard and Seagate Technology announced plans this week to develop 2Gbps and 4Gbps Fibre Channel storage connectivity. This would double and quadruple existing speeds, with the first products expected to be available around 18 months from now. By 2002 IDC estimates that 45 per cent of internal Raid storage controller units will support Fibre Channel, whereas today 99 per cent support SCSI.
