VIA SPEC MADE PUBLIC, SUN WILL SUPPORT IT IF OEMS ASK

By CBR Staff Writer

Version 1.0 of the VIA Virtual Interface Architecture specification which Compaq, Intel and Microsoft have defined, providing high-speed communication interfaces for clustering servers together is now publicly available. The three say over 100 companies have contributed to the spec and expect firs products to be available in 1998. Sun Microsystems Inc, notably absent from the list of companies which stood up in support of VIA when it was announced back in April (CI No 3,142), said yesterday it will likely support VIA and other Intel-oriented technologies if its Solaris x86 OEMs require it.
