Microsoft delays high performance Windows

News has reached us that Microsoft now plans to delay its high-end "compute cluster" version of Windows. Windows Server 2003, Compute Cluster Edition is now expected to be released in the first half of next year. Microsoft has blamed the need for additional development in the areas of management and deployment as the cause of the delay.

Compute Cluster Edition is based on Windows Server 2003 and will support high-performance hardware and industry standards such as MPI-2 and RDMA over Ethernet and Infiniband, Microsoft said last fall. The system will include an integrated job scheduler and cluster resource management.

That's how they do business.First, a competitor has a product already on the market.Then, Microsoft announces their own product, of course saying it's better than the competitor's one.The customers now wait for MS's product instead of buying competitor's already available product.MS announces "unexpected delays" as long as necessary for the competitor to disappear.
