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.
