SNIA Draft Technical Work available for Public Review

During the development of technical work, the SNIA may make available a Work-in-Progress DRAFT version for public review & feedback.  Work-in-Progress DRAFTS are not endorsed by the SNIA for commercial shipping product implementation, but rather for review/feedback and prototyping work to ensure the work, when completed, will meet the needs of the Industry.
Work-in-Progress DRAFTS are subject to change. The Work-in-Progress DRAFT  may be updated, replaced, or made obsolete at any time. Some of the Intellectual Property protections for users of SNIA software and specifications are not applicable to users of Work-in-Progress DRAFTs.

Smart Data Accelerator Interface (“SDXI”) Specification v0.9.0 rev 1

This document describes the Smart Data Accelerator Interface (SDXI), an architectural data-mover device for server platforms. SDXI aims to provide a variety of benefits including architectural stability, modularity, virtualization-friendly programming interface, both user and kernel mode support, and new capabilities designed to accelerate virtualized workloads.


Swordfish Scalable Storage Management API Specification v1.2.3

The Swordfish Scalable Storage Management API defines a RESTful interface and a standardized data model to provide a scalable, customer-centric interface for managing storage and related data services.


Blockchain Interoperability Specification v0.5 rev 0.1

Blockchain Data & Storage Network Interoperability specification


Computational Storage Architecture and Programming Model v0.8 rev 0

This SNIA document defines recommended behavior for hardware and software that supports Computational Storage.


Computational Storage API v0.5 rev 0

This SNIA Draft Standard defines the interface between an application and a Computational Storage device (CSx). For each CSx there will need to be a library that performs the mapping from the APIs in this specification and the CSx on the specific interface for that CSx.


DRAFT CDMI Extensions and Profiles

The Cloud Storage Technical Work Group is adding new functionality to CDMI by publishing individual extensions the the CDMI standard. These can be implemented as needed in conjunction with a CDMI implementation to add new functionality before the next release of CDMI. As implementation experience is gained and interoperable implementations are tested, these extensions will be made part of the next release of CDMI.

The Cloud Storage TWG will also be publishing profiles of CDMI that scope it down to specific use cases based on different types of clouds.

See the dedicated web page DRAFT CDMI Extensions and Profiles for additional information.
