SMI-S Implementation Getting Started Guide

The Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S) Implementation Getting Started Guide describes the high level development steps and available resources needed to create an SMI-S Implementation. The guide does not describe SMI-S or why it should be implemented. 

See SMI-S Architecture for the terms used in this guide.

SMI-S Implementation Development Steps

The following describe the high level steps to develop an SMI-S implementation.

  1. Determine Infrastructure
  2. Determine what needs to be implemented (e.g. Profile List)
  3. Develop Vendor Schema
  4. Create Functional Specification (aka Mapping Document)
  5. Develop Providers
  6. Test Implementation
