SNIA is an organization which develops and promotes standards, technologies, and educational services to empower the management of information in the storage domain.

The SNIA Non-Volatile Memory Programming (NVMP) Technical Work Group (TWG) delivers specifications describing the behavior of a common set of software interfaces that provide access to non-volatile memory (NVM). The TWG goal is to encourage a common ecosystem for NVM-enabled software without limiting the ability to innovate.

The OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) is an open source-based organization that develops, tests, licenses, supports and distributes OpenFabrics Software (OFS). The Alliance’s mission is to develop and promote software that enables maximum application efficiency by delivering wire-speed messaging, ultra-low latencies and maximum bandwidth directly to applications with minimal CPU overhead.

The specific area of collaboration defined in the following Work Register is on remote access to Persistent Memory.
