SNIA’s Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI™) v2.0 Now an ISO Standard

SNIA’s Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI™) v2.0 is now an ISO/IEC standard, ISO/IEC 17826. CDMI enables cloud solution vendors to meet the growing need of interoperability for data stored in the cloud. The CDMI standard is applicable to all types of clouds – private, public and hybrid. It provides end users with the ability to control the destiny of their data and ensures data access, data protection and data migration from one cloud service to another.

Upcoming Webcasts
Is the Data Really Gone? A Primer on the Sanitization of Storage Devices
June 29, 2022
Jonmichael Hands, Chia Network; Jim Hatfield, Seagate; John Geldman, KIOXIA
What do you think is a more secure way of securely removing data from a hard drive - putting it through a shredder, or doing an instant secure erase? The answer might surprise you!

In this webcast, we will go over the different types of sanitization defined in the new IEEE P2883 Specification for Sanitization of Storage and cover easy ways to perform “Clear,” "Purge,” and “Destruct” in mainstream storage interfaces like SATA, SAS, and NVMe. We discuss recommendations for the verification of sanitization to ensure that devices are meeting stringent requirements and explain how the purge technique for media sanitization can be quick, secure, reliable, and verifiable - and most importantly keeps the device in one piece.
xPU Accelerator Offload Functions
June 29, 2022
Joseph White, Dell Technologies; John Kim, NVIDIA; Jai Menon, Fungible; Yadong Li, Intel; David McIntyre, Samsung
This second webcast in this xPU webcast series will take a deeper dive into the accelerator offload functions of the xPU. We’ll discuss what problems the xPUs are coming to solve, where in the system they live, and the functions they implement, focusing on network offloads, security, compute and storage  
Storage Life on the Edge: Accelerated Performance Strategies
July 12, 2022
Amanda Saunders, NVIDIA; Tushar Gohad, Intel; Alex McDonald, Independent Consultant
An increasing percentage of data is generated and processed at the edge of the network. With this trend comes the need for faster computing, access to storage, and movement of data at the edge as well as between the edge and the data center. This webcast will cover:
  • The increasing need to do more at the edge across compute, storage and networking
  • The rise of intelligent edge locations
  • Different solutions that provide faster processing or data movement at the edge
  • How computational storage can speed up data processing and transmission at the edge
  • Security considerations for edge processing
Kubernetes is Everywhere – What About Cloud Native Storage?
July 19, 2022
Alex Chircop, Ondat; Nick Connolly, DataCore Software; Michael St-Jean, Red Hat; Alex McDonald, SNIA CSTI Chair
Organizations are adopting containers at an increasingly rapid rate. In fact, there are few organizations that haven’t implemented containers in their environment today.
Storage implications for Kubernetes will be the topic of this live webcast where storage experts from SNIA and Kubernetes experts from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) will discuss:
  • Key storage attributes of cloud native storage for Kubernetes
  • How do we use cloud native storage in Kubernetes environments?
  • Workloads and real-world use cases
 This webcast will help you better understand and address storage and persistent data challenges in a Kubernetes environment.
