The program has successfully provided an environment for over 15 years to support and coordinate vendors' development efforts to deliver SMI-S compliant products to market, and is now tailored for SNIA Swordfish™.

Plugfests are scheduled throughout the year to test interoperability across SMI-S or SNIA Swordfish implementations, validate CTP test updates, and create mockups of potential changes to the standards. In addition, plugfests provide an opportunity to meet with peer developers and others supporting commonly used tools.

Accelerate the development of your storage solutions.
