Dell, HP & Reliance Go to IBM for Hot Swappable "Active PCI".
IBM says a unification around Active PCI for hot-pluggable PCI implementations will provide a focal point for investment. Servers using the technology can be expanded or upgraded in real- time. Components using PCI adapter slots, such as RAID adapters and network cards, can take advantage of the technology, which works with current versions of NT and the future Windows 2000. HP says it will use the technology with its NetServer range and Dell in its PowerEdge servers. Reliance says it will support high- availability PCI within its ServerSet chip technology aimed at the server OEM marketplace.
