SNIA's SMI-S Approved by ISO

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) today announced that its Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S) has been designated an International Standard by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). This designation is expected to further accelerate the already widespread adoption of the standard by storage vendors and IT users in all markets worldwide.

The recognition of SMI-S by ISO and IEC is clear evidence that the specification has become visible among the worldwide storage community as a key to helping increase storage interoperability and decrease management complexity. It is also evidence of SNIA’s growing reputation for producing high quality standards,” said Vincent Franceschini, chair of the SNIA. “SMI-S was created to develop interoperable storage management technologies, and its ratification as an international standard signifies the impact it can have on a global level to achieve these goals.”
