Standardization efforts have continued for features to improve SSD performance and endurance. NVMe, SCSI, and SATA have completed standardization of streams and background operation control. Standardization is beginning on how SSDs may implement Key Value Storage (KVS) and In Storage Compute (ISC). This effort is progressing in the SNIA Object Drive Technical Work Group (TWG), and may involve future work in the protocol standards (NVMe, SCSI, and SATA). Currently the Object Drive TWG is defining IP based management for object drives in utilizing the DMTF RedFish objects. Future Object Drive TWG work will include APIs for KVS and ISC. This presentation will discuss the standardization of streams, background operation control, KVS, and ISC and how each of these features work. Learning Objectives What is streams What is background operation control Progress of standardization in NVMe, SCSI, SATA, and SNIA
