Swordfish – A Standard by Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet

Alex Galbraith hear from SNIA last year at Storage Field Day, and takes a look at the Swordfish. This defines the standards for APIs used by storage devices to make sure they’re consistent. Alex doesn’t think this will displace more proprietary approaches overnight, but if developed in parallel, may become a widely used standard. Plus, the project is designed to quickly ratify requirements when added by a few vendors, which should keep it relevant going forward.
