This was announced during SC, but I don’t think we covered it and I think it’s worth a mention. From Panasas’ web site

Panasas, Inc.,…announced that it is working to provide the benefits of Panasas ActiveStor Parallel Storage Clusters to the Microsoft Windows Cluster Compute Server (CCS) platform. Panasas will port its DirectFLOW protocol and client software to the Microsoft Windows CCS platform, enabling users in the energy, manufacturing, financial services, life sciences, government and academic markets to increase flexibility and productivity by deploying mixed Linux and Windows clusters with common high performance storage.

…Panasas currently intends to release a native version of the DirectFLOW software for Microsoft Windows CCS operating systems in late 2008.
