[December 29, 2006] The Trusted Computing Group is working to address critical storage security issues.
Storage Connections: Standards and Certifications
[December 8, 2006] The weak link in the data path is the hodgepodge of groups responsible for different parts of the I/O stack.
[October 11, 2006] Some proposed changes to POSIX standards could greatly improve file system performance.
[March 8, 2006] Dell, EMC and others forge a group dedicated to defining storage hardware.
[February 18, 2005] Despite vendor hype and evolving standards, storage management remains a pain, but there is hope.
[July 28, 2004] We discuss SNIA's new SMI-s Conformance Testing Program with Julie Ryan, Engenio's manager of alliances.
[June 17, 2004] SNIA's new Education Continuum could remake storage education and certification and eventually lead to a storage networking degree.
[March 20, 2002] In the second part of our series on 'Standards and Certifications' we take a look at Brocades's qualification programs for its fabric solutions for storage networks. These products alleviate the processing overhead on the server and offload backup and recovery traffic. Interoperability is essential.
[February 6, 2002] This article is the first in a series which will look at how accreditation programs like those available from Brocade, IBM, and EMC work, and at how they can be valuable. Before we start looking at the specific programs, however, a historical view of the storage arena and the related technologies will make it easier to understand how these certification programs came into being.
