Storage Networking Industry Association

Incorporated in December 1997, the SNIA is a registered 501(c)6 non-profit trade association. Our members are dedicated to ensuring that storage networks become complete and trusted solutions across the IT community.

The SNIA works toward this goal by forming and sponsoring technical work groups, producing (with our strategic partner Computerworld) the Storage Networking World Conference series, building and maintaining a vendor neutral Technology Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado and promoting activities that expand the breadth and quality of the storage networking market.


SCSI Trade Association

The SCSI Trade Association was formed in 1996 to promote the use and understanding of small computer system interface ("SCSI") parallel interface technology.


Storage Bridge Bay Working Group

The objective of the Storage Bridge Bay Working Group (SBB) is to create a specification that defines mechanical, electrical and low-level enclosure management requirements for an enclosure controller slot that will support a variety of storage controllers from a variety of independent hardware vendors ("IHVs") and system vendors. Any storage controller design based on the SBB specification will be able to fit, connect, and operate within any storage enclosure controller slot design based on the same specification.



Formed in 1992, the PCI-SIG is the industry organization chartered to develop and manage the PCI standard. With over 900 members, the PCI-SIG effectively places ownership and management of the PCI specifications in the hands of the developer community. A Board of Directors comprised of nine people, each elected by the membership, leads the PCI-SIG.



HyperTransport (HT) is a state-of-art packet-based, high-bandwidth, scalable, low latency point-to-point interconnect technology that links processors to each other, processors to coprocessors and processors to I/O and peripheral controllers.

HyperTransport is an open standard technology managed, promoted and licensed to the industry at large by the HyperTransport Consortium

HyperTransport's market-proven solidity and highly efficient protocol make it the ideal choice as chip-to-chip, board-to-board and chassis-to-chassis high-performance interconnect, successfully deployed in the widest rage of consumer, commercial and mission-critical applications, including gaming systems, embedded designs, networking equipment, personal computers, workstations, servers, and supercomputers.



Get intelligence where you need it. Intel® Embedded Alliance members provide original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and developers with the advanced hardware, software, firmware, tools and systems integration they need to help get their designs to market faster.


Server System Infrastructure (SSI) Forum

Established in 1998, the Server System Infrastructure (SSI) Forum is a leading server industry group that drives the server infrastructure standards that enable new market opportunities. For ten years SSI created standards for redundant server power systems, rack-mount server chassis, power control and management, and other components and services that simplify the build of server solutions. In recent years, SSI has extended its standardization specifications to add blade-based server standards to address customer and ecosystem challenges.
