8.12 S2I: IEEE P1285 Scalable Storage Interface




Description

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

8.12 S2I: IEEE P1285 Scalable Storage Interface

    Chaired by Martin Freeman, Philips Research, this is an effort to
standardize attaching disk drives directly to a system bus, making the
disk's buffers readable as regular memory to the CPU. Sort of the
opposite of network-attached storage, this couples the storage device
design more closely to the hardware and OS of the host system. See
