The article Harvesting grid computings power
in the March 2005 issue of Network Magazine, which was written by Anil Patrick
R, was very informative and useful. www.networkmagazineindia.com/ 200503/xsp01.shtml
Being part of an active grid community in Israel, I look forward to seeing more
such articles in the future.

Cases for BI
Thank you for replying to my query regarding Business Intelligence (BI) and
Competitive Intelligence (CI) in banks. It has helped me get a clear perspective
on the process.
Has Network Magazine published any case studies related to
BI in banking? If yes, can you please give me the issue dates?
Dear Karin Smith
We covered Business Intelligence extensively in our issue
dated July 2003, where we featured case studies of Standard Chartered Bank,
India, and Reserve Bank of India. www.networkmagazineindia.com/200307/
The May 2005 cover story was on CRM; there are also some
case studies regarding BI and analytical CRM in the issue. Refer to: www.networkmagazineindia.com
IP SAN set-up
The April 2005 cover story on IP SAN was well written and
informative. Can you inform me about the minimal hardware configuration that
is required to set up a 1 TB IP SAN?
Dear Arun Shejwal
Although the hardware required to set up an IP SAN is easily
available off the shelf, most IP SANs operate because of the SAN controller
software (for routing traffic). It is not a good idea to set up an IP SAN by
yourself unless you have the in-house expertise to develop this software.
On the hardware side, you can use a commonly available
GbE switch for switching, Serial ATA drives (7,200 rpm minimum speed) and Cat
6 cabling. But just these wont give you the performance if you dont
have the required software.
IS 2005 issue
I read Network Magazine regularly and my company subscribes to it as well.
I saw the advertisement of the nationwide survey that will be conducted jointly
by IMRB and you, titled Infrastructure Strategies 2005. I would like a copy
of the survey results along with the June edition of your magazine.
I request you to book my copy, and let me know of any charges that will be necessary.
