The Solid State Storage Initiative (SSSI) is an initiative formed by the Storage Network Industry Association (SNIA) to help foster and grow the adoption of solid-state storage in enterprise and client environments.

The Solid State Storage Initiative (SSSI) is an initiative formed by the Storage Network Industry Association (SNIA) to help foster and grow the adoption of solid-state storage in enterprise and client environments.

According to SNIA, the SSSI’s goals include becoming the recognized authority for solid-state storage and educating vendors and users about the technology. Other goals include performing benchmark testing, creating vendor-neutral tutorials, and determining and documenting the characteristics and impact of solid-state storage.

SNIA’s initiatives primarily focus on marketing and promoting technologies rather than developing technology specifications. However, the SSSI developed the Solid-State Storage Performance Test Specification (SSS PTS) to standardize performance tests for solid-state devices. The SSS PTS includes a suite of tests and provides performance measurements that buyers can use to accurately compare vendors’ products. The SSSI developed an Enterprise PTS and a Client PTS.

This was first published in January 2012
