Description

This article is from the storage FAQ part2, by Rodney D. Van Meter with numerous contributions by others.

1.2 IEEE Mass Storage System Ref Model (OSSI) {Brief, 6/1/95}

    The Storage Systems Standards Working Group now has a WWW page at
http://www.arl.mil/IEEE/ssswg.html.

Version 5 of the model is available via
ftp://swedishchef.lerc.nasa.gov:mass_store/ as the files
ossiv5.ps{1,2,3}.

The OSSI (Open Storage Systems Interconnection) Reference Model (its
new name) "provides the framework for a series of standards for
application and user interfaces to open storage systems." One of its
prime purposes is to define a common vocabulary. Claiming compliance
with the model at the moment has little practical value as far as

develop from this model).
