The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) today announced the Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) Programming Technical Work Group (TWG) to accelerate the availability of software-enabling NVM (Non-Volatile Memory) hardware. The TWG, founded by Dell, EMC, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, Intel, NetApp, Oracle, QLogic and Symantec will create specifications that will provide guidance to operating system, device driver, and application developers.
The work group aims to serve as an industry forum communicating the need for Operating System (OS) enhancements to support NVM hardware.
"With the major leaps in performance capabilities and improved economics now possible with storage class memory, defining OS requirements to enable applications is expected to accelerate the availability of a broader range of NVM solutions to the IT industry," said Wayne M. Adams, Chairman of the SNIA. "The classic architecture of operating systems, servers and storage will rapidly evolve with NVM to meet the continued computational needs using larger data sets and driving new uses of information for business and science."
The NVM Programming Technical Work Group will:
•Act as the primary technical entity for the SNIA to identify, develop, and coordinate systems standards for software enabling NVM hardware. •Produce a comprehensive set of specifications and drive consistency of software interface standards and messages related to NVM hardware. •Document system-level requirements and share these with other NVM standards organizations under the guidance of the SNIA Technical Council and in cooperation with the SNIA Strategic Alliances Committee.
