SSD Standards Drive Launched

Arthur Cole

Once a new technology takes hold in the IT industry, it's never long before the call for standards arises. Such is the case with solid-state disks.

 

While not a new technology, there is a concerted effort to bring them into enterprise storage environments, so much so that the Storage Networking Industry Association is launching an initiative aimed at coordinating the development and integration of the technology.

 

Dubbed the Solid State Storage Initiative (SSSI), the effort will include outreach and evangelization to convince both vendors and user groups that SSDs bring a number of benefits to the enterprise, says InfoStor Magazine.

 

Some of the key standardization issues the group will target include management and addressing tasks, such as wear leveling and endurance, as well as development of optimal solutions for drive interfaces, HBAs and I/O drivers.

 

First order of business is coordination with other industry groups like the International Disk Drive Equipment and Materials Association (IDEMA) and the Solid State Drive Alliance to determine the state of standardization already in place.


 

No word yet on when the group intends to make any proposals.
