The Standards Watch of StandICT.eu monitors the status of ICT standards at international level, starting from the five priority areas of the Digital Single Market: 5G communications,cloud computing,cybersecurity,data technology, and IoT – Internet of Things.
In particular, special attention is given to the rapidly evolving ICT topics of: Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, IoT.
Gradually, the Standards Watch will be expanded to other ICT domains and topics, with the aim of better identifying gaps, needs & opportunities and consequently stimulating European Experts to pursue the openings granted by the StandICT.eu initiative.
The SNIA has developed methods which enable manufacturers to set, and customers to compare, the performance specifications of Solid State Storage devices, which are evolving with the state of the technology. These specifications define a set of device level tests and methodologies which enable comparative testing of SSS devices for Enterprise and Client systems.
SARIF TC members are developing an interoperability standard for detecting software defects and vulnerabilities. The goal is to define a common output format for static analysis tools that will make it feasible for developers and teams to view, understand, interact with, and manage the results produced by all their tools.
The NVM Programming Model was developed to address the ongoing proliferation of new non-volatile memory (NVM) functionality and new NVM technologies. An extensible NVM Programming Model is necessary to enable an industry wide community of NVM producers and consumers to move forward together through a number of significant storage and memory system architecture changes.
The IP Drive Management Specification describes the management features and functions of a storage device class known as IP Based Drives. It includes a taxonomy covering the scope of involved device capabilities.
The SOA Repository Artifact Model and Protocol (S-RAMP) TC defines a common data model for SOA repositories as well as an interaction protocol to facilitate the use of common tooling and sharing of data. The TC will define an ATOM binding which documents the syntax for interaction with a compliant repository for create, read, update, delete and query operations.
The LTFS Format Specification defines a file system format separate from any implementation on data storage media. Using this format, data is stored in LTFS Volumes. An LTFS Volume holds data files and corresponding metadata to completely describe the directory and file structures stored on the volume.
The OASIS Service Oriented Architecture Reference Model TC develops a reference model to encourage the continued growth of different and specialized SOA implementations whilst preserving a common layer of understanding about what SOA is.
The TC will:
The Solid State Storage System (S4) TWG was created for the purpose of addressing the unique performance behavior of solid state storage systems. The TWG creates specifications which provide guidance to accurately measure the performance of enterprise arrays as oppose to devices.
SOA End-to-End Resource Planning is a technology that optimizes deployment of services onto a SOA description of an application.
The Storage Management Initiative Technical Work Group (SMI TWG) is responsible for the maintenance and evolution of the SNIA Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S). SMI-S defines an interface for the interoperable management of a heterogeneous Storage Area Network (SAN).
The Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), developed by the Security Services Technical Committee of OASIS, is an XML-based framework for communicating user authentication, entitlement, and attribute information.
The SNIA SFF Technology Affiliate (TA) Technical Work Group (TWG) work items include the development of technical specifications as SNIA Architecture for storage media, storage networks, and pluggable solutions that complement existing industry standards work that encompass cables, connectors, form factor sizes and housing dimensions, management interface
The Security TWG provides architectures and frameworks for the establishment of information security capabilities within the storage networking industry, including that of stored information in heterogeneous environments.
The purpose of the OASIS Production Planning and Scheduling TC is to develop common object models and corresponding XML schemas for production planning and scheduling software, which can communicate with each other in order to establish collaborative planning and scheduling on intra and/or inter enterprises in manufacturing industries.
The SSM TWG is a technical work group of the SNIA Technical Committee defining the Swordfish specification that extends the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF)'s Redfish specification (API) to handle the emanagement of storage equipment and storage services found in modern data centers.
The OASIS PMRM TC works to provide a standards-based framework that will help business process engineers, IT analysts, architects, and developers implement privacy and security policies in their operations. PMRM picks up where broad privacy policies leave off. Most policies describe fair information practices and principles but offer little insight into actual implementation.
The Object Drive TWG was created for the purpose of establishing architectures and standards for disk, solid state and tape drive based functionalities that allow them to be higher level storage nodes in emerging scale out solutions. The TWG creates specifications that enable scale out storage systems to add and remove these nodes incrementally and seamlessly.
The NVM Programming TWG was created for the purpose of accelerating availability of software enabling NVM (Non-Volatile Memory) hardware. The TWG creates specifications which provide guidance to operating system, device driver, and application developers.
SNIA's Linear Tape File System (LTFS) Technical Work Group is focusing technical efforts on the development of an architecture that is related to the on-tape format for LTFS. The architecture also produces a comprehensive set of specifications ensuring a consistency of interface standards across LTFS related efforts.
