SNIA Forms Solid-State Work Group

LAS VEGAS -- The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), through its Technical Council (TC), today announced the creation of the Solid State Storage Technical Work Group (SSS TWG) to create a reference SNIA architecture and facilitate industry-wide adoption of common requirements, methods, and specifications in related standards organizations. Additionally, the SNIA Solid State Storage Initiative (SSSI) released its first technical paper providing an overview and outlook for solid state technologies and will be delivering three unique demonstrations covering both enterprise and consumer solid state storage.

The 35 members of SSS TWG will work closely with the SSSI on the development, education and promotion of standards and solutions based on solid state storage to help define the new market sector created by this disruptive technology,” said Wayne Adams, Chair of the SNIA. “These two groups are off to a very productive start and are already breaking new ground in helping the industry understand and harness solid state storage.”
