A dictionary of Storage Networking terminology

Abstract: From the Website: The members of the Storage Networking Industry Association have collaborated to create this Dictionary of Storage and Storage Networking Terminology. The collaboration has been extensive, with many members making substantial contributions. There has also been extensive review and comment by the entire SNIA membership. This dictionary thus represents the storage networking industry''s most comprehensive attempt to date to arrive at a common body of terminology for the technologies it represents. The reader should recognize that in this rapidly evolving field, new terminology is constantly being introduced, and common usage is shifting. The SNIA regards this dictionary as a living document, to be updated as necessary to reflect a consensus on common usage, and encourages readers to treat it in that spirit. Comments and suggestions for improvement are gratefully accepted at any time, with the understanding that any submission of comments or suggestions contributes them to SNIA; and SNIA will own all rights (including any copyright or intellectual property rights) in them. Comments and suggestions should be directed to
