  4. 4. Why Industry AssociationsStandards bodies (e.g., IEEE, IETF, ISO) – Create and maintain standards– Strongly process oriented– Structured to accomplish technical workIndustry Associations (e.g., FCIA, Ethernet Alliance) – Set industry agenda around a technology– Promote technology and provide education– Structured to accomplish marketing programsCombination bodies (e.g., SNIA, OGF) – Create and maintain standards (with other organizations)– Set industry agenda around a technology– Promote technology and provide education– Structured to accomplish marketing programs and technical work 4
  5. 5. SNIA At-A-GlanceVoice of the storage industry representing approximately$50-60 Billion in worldwide revenue for hardware and softwareFounded in 1997 as a 501(c)(6) non-profit tradeassociationWorldwide headquarters in San Francisco and Global PresenceFocus on education, certification, conferences,specifications/standards, industry alliances, best practices,plugfests, and conformance testing for SNIA specificationsApproximately 4,100 Active Members, Some 400 OrganizationsComprising Vendors, End Users, Channel and Services45,000 IT Users and Vendors Educated, 1,500 Certified Professionals 5Achieving , 3,200 Certifications
  6. 6. 2011 Key Focus AreasStorage in Virtualised Storage in Cloud EnvironmentsEnvironments – Cloud Storage– Managing Storage – Security in the Cloud– High Availability NetworkingStorage – Ethernet Storage  iSCSI, NFS, pNFS, NAS– Data Deduplication – Fibre Channel SAN– Data Protection – Network Convergence  Data Archiving  Multi-hop FCoE  Data Centre Bridging & Converged– Green Storage Enhanced Ethernet– Security – Security– Solid State– Storage Management (SMI-S) 6
  7. 7. Cloud Storage Defined451 Group on cloud:– “Cloud is a way of using technology, not a technology in itself – its a self-service, on-demand pay-per-use model. Consolidation, virtualization and automation strategies will be the catalysts behind cloud adoption.”Forrester Research on cloud:– “A pool of abstracted, highly scalable, and managed compute infrastructure capable of hosting end-customer applications and billed by consumption”SNIA: Data Storage as a Service (DaaS)– [Services] Delivery over a network of appropriately configured virtual storage and related data services, based on a request for a given service level. Typically, DaaS hides limits to scalability, is either self- provisioned or provisionless and is billed based on consumption. 7 SNIA Dictionary on-line at: snia.org/education/dictionary
  8. 8. Typical Cloud User ScenariosA Storage Cloud can be created as public, private orhybrid– Public – secure multi-tenant externally hosted– Private – secure single or multi-tenant usually hosted inside the firewall or by a 3rd party– Hybrid – combination of public and private cloud infrastructures and servicesStorage Cloud may be mixed with other Cloud services 8
  9. 9. What Is Cloud Storage Used For? Elastic demand for web based media (video, eBooks, audio) Backup to the cloud – Restore, Recovery, “Seed” the backup with hard drive Sync of files to the cloud and multiple devices – Internet “Drive” secondary storage Archive to the cloud – Including Compliance, Retention and eDiscovery Storage for Cloud Computing9 – Support for legacy storage interfaces is a key feature
  10. 10. Where Can a Cloud Storage Standard help?Common method to instantiate and manage datastorage resource– Easier development, faster deploymentCommon Cloud Storage metadata management– Storage, System, Network, Application, Security, PrivacyCloud-to-Cloud data portability– Migrate not only data but also management requirementsEasier SLA/SLO management – Requirements pushed down object-levelEasier integration in greater Cloud environments:– Cloud Storage for Cloud Computing, Federated Services 10
  11. 11. SNIA CSI Members12 Original Founding Members New Since October 2009 11
  12. 12. Cloud Data Management Interface Applicable to three types of Cloud Storage: – Cloud Storage for Cloud Computing  Whitepaper at snia.org/cloud – the management interface for the lifecycle of storage in a compute cloud – Public Storage Cloud  Whitepaper at snia.org/cloud – both a Data Path for the Cloud and a Management Path for the Cloud Data – Private Cloud Storage  As well as hybrid clouds  An API for Storage Vendors selling into Cloud based solutions Semantics – Simple Containers and Data Objects with tagged Metadata – Data System Metadata expresses the data requirements Protocol – RESTful HTTP as “core” interface style – JSON (JavaScript Object Notation)– format of the representations are extensible12
