Abstract: 

NVMe and SNIA are both working on standards related to Computational Storage. The question that is continually asked is are these efforts are compatible or at odds with each other. The truth is that many of the same people are working on both of these standards efforts and are very interested in ensuring that they work together as opposed to conflicting with each other. This presentation will discuss how the two standards efforts go hand in hand, the aspects of the SNIA API that support the NVMe efforts, and the NVMe efforts to share common architectural structures with those defined in SNIA. As part of this discussion, a lexicon of terminology used in both organizations will be presented and the decoder ring that allows you to understand one document in terms of the other in spite of some differences in names used.
