Need a backplane adjustment?


A handful of switch makers are betting engineers who design server blades, storage arrays and ATCA-based comms systems will shift their backplanes from Gbit Ethernet to PCI Express or Infiniband over the next year or two.

If you are one of those systems engineers, I'd love to hear you chime in about whether you are planning such a shift, why and what you see as the main trade offs. You can post a comment here or send me an email at rbmerrit@cmp.com. Do it before end of day Wednesday if you want your thoughts considered for inclusion in the round up I am doing for next-week's print issue of EE Times.
