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.

Native NVMe-oF™ Drive Specification v1.1

This Native NVMe-oF™ Drive Specification describes the features and functions of a storage device class known as Native NVMe-oF Drives. It includes a taxonomy covering the scope of involved device capabilities.


Swordfish Scalable Storage Management API Specification v1.2.2

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


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.


Computational Storage Architecture and Programming Model v0.5 rev 1

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