Storage Management

The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) is a global non-profit organization dedicated to developing standards and education programs to advance storage and information technology. SNIA created the Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S) currently in use in datacenters to manage interoperable storage.

Philip Alsop from Digitalisation World interviews Richelle Ahlvers, Chair of the SNIA Storage Management Initiative. They discuss what’s new with SNIA Swordfish™, the storage management standard, the latest developments on work with industry partner organizations, the new Conformance Testing Program and Next-Gen Lab.

This paper defines the approach, infrastructure and mechanisms to use for Swordfish implementations, to capture and store historical metrics to present to Swordfish clients in a standardized fashion, using the Redfish telemetry service.

The NVMe management ecosystem has a lot of moving parts and confusing acronyms. In this overview, SNIA experts discuss various specifications and how they work together.
