    As food for thought, since one possible direction this group could take is around standardized form factors and storage controllers, some of the group might be interested in two other storage standardization efforts (I am not advocating that this is an appropriate tack. As I said, food for thought, and there may be insights to be gained by assessing why these have/have not been successful.

    1. storage controllers, championed by Intel and others named Storage Bridge Bay (SBB). SBB provides for storage I/O processing, and is extensible to support dual-redundancy in a standardized form factor and connector layout. Several vendors make SBB controllers See:

    2. Backblaze, an online backup service provider designed their own high-density storage system and published the specs, the drawings, and a BoM, now in its 3rd generation. See:

    Hi All,

    Gary Orenstein, SVP Products from Fusion-IO has kindly accepted to do the following presentation in our next week F2F meetup:

    When Storage and Memory Collide
    The pace of innovation in flash memory and storage is merging these worlds. In particular storage is becoming memory centric and memories are now serving storage functions.
    In this talk, we'll take a closer look at the macro shifts in flash, the technical innovations in new storage architectures, and how both of these forces are changing the storage supply chain.
    Specifically, we'll discuss
    _architecting flash for storage
    _the underpinnings of Linux SCSI target software systems
    _dis-aggregating the storage supply chain

    See you all next week.
