Interoperability standards play a vital role in customer adoption and advancement of storage networking technologies and systems. Storage networking is based on a broad spectrum of standards (developed by multiple standards organizations) in areas such as Fibre Channel (INCITS T11), SCSI (INCITS T10), iSCSI (IETF), and storage management (SNIA, IETF). The current state and future direction of standards development can provide useful insights into technology developments. This tutorial covers storage networking standards and the role that the resulting standardized interfaces/functionality play in networked storage infrastructure. The tutorial presenter is a member of the SNIA Technical Council who is actively involved in development of many storage networking standards.
