Fusion-io to collaborate with SCSI Trade Association on new standard

Fusion-io Inc., announced this week that the company would work with the SCSI Trade Association on SCSI Express standard for PCIe-based storage.

Fusion-io Inc., announced this week that the company would work with the SCSI Trade Association in the development and marketing of the SCSI Express standard for PCIe-based storage.

Wikibon.org reports that the SCSI Express standard uses SCSI targets and initiators to work across a PCIe connection using a SCSI command set optimized for SSD.

According to Fusion-io, SCSI Express will include the SCSI over PCIe (SOP) protocol, the PCIe Architecture Queuing Interface (PQI) and a universal drive connector for 2.5-inch platforms, the PCIe physical layer and OS support.

The company said it will join the T10 Technical Committee, which is responsible for standardizing SCSI architecture, command sets, protocols and physical layers for parallel SCSI and SAS. That board is part of the InterNational Committee on Information Technology Standards (INCITS), according to the INCITS website.

A demonstration of the technology is scheduled for a SCSI Trade Association show on May 9 in Santa Clara, Calif., according to the organization.
