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.

To provide feedback, please use the SNIA Feedback Portal.

Persistent Memory Performance Test Specification v1.0 rev 0.02 Preamble

This document is the initial preamble that describes the plan to develop a specification that describes best practices for Persistent Memory Storage Performance Test and sets forth a performance test methodology, PM storage platform set up, test settings, synthetic benchmark workloads, real-world application workloads and test results reporting format. It is intended to provide accurate, repeatable and reliable comparison of Block IO and In-Memory byte addressable test results used in traditional and PM aware applications under various PM Storage configurations.


Swordfish Profile Core Bundle Working Draft version v0.9

The Swordfish Profile Core Bundle contains the definition of the set of features and the corresponding detailed profiles required to implement Swordfish. Swordfish uses advertised Features and corresponding Profile definitions to clearly define what functionality an implementation supports, and to assure interoperability.  For example, the IOPerformance Feature and corresponding profile together specify that when an implementation advertises SNIA.Swordfish.Block.IOPerformance, any instances of Volumes and StoragePools will implement a fully populate IOStatistics object.
 
This bundle is released as a Working Draft, and the contents are subject to change at any time.


Swordfish Non-Service Based Task Force Working Draft

This proposal is a snapshot of work in progress by the Non-service based task force of the SNIA Scalable Storage Management TWG, and does not represent the work of the SSM TWG at this point. Contents are subject to change at any time.


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.
