    SMI-S (Storage Management Initiative Specification)

    SMI-S (Storage Management Initiative Specification) is a standard developed by the Storage Network Industry Association (SNIA) that is intended to facilitate the management of storage devices from multiple vendors in storage area networks (SANs).

  • SNIA Solid-State Storage Initiative (SSSI)

    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.

  • soft zoning

    Soft zoning is used to allocate resources and control access in a storage-area network (SAN).

  • software RAID (software redundant array of independent disk)

    Software RAID is a form of RAID (redundant array of independent disks) performed on the internal server.

  • software-defined storage (SDS)

    Software-defined storage (SDS) is a computer program that manages data storage resources and functionality and has no dependencies on the underlying physical storage hardware.

  • solid state drive (SSD) capacity

    solid state drive (SSD) capacity

  • solid state module (SSM)

    A solid state module is solid state storage that resides in a Dual In-line Memory Module (DIMM) or similar form factor. 

  • solid state storage (SSS) garbage collection

    Garbage collection, like TRIM, pro-actively eliminates the need for whole block erasures prior to every write operation.

  • solid state storage auto-tiering

    Solid state storage auto tiering is automatically moving data that needs to accessed frequently to more expensive single-level cell (SLC) solid state storage and moving data that does not require frequent access to less expensive multi-level cell (MLC) solid state media or other lower cost, higher capacity drives.

  • Solid State Storage Performance Test Specification (SSS PTS)

    Solid State Storage Performance Test Specification (SSS PTS) is a set of procedures for evaluating the performance of NAND-based solid state storage (SSS). 

  • solid-state storage

    Solid-state storage (SSS) is a type of computer storage media made from silicon microchips. SSS stores data electronically instead of magnetically, as spinning hard disk drives (HDDs) or magnetic oxide tape do.

  • solid-state storage UBER

    Solid-state storage UBER (unrecoverable bit error rate) is the percentage of bits that have errors relative to the total number of bits that have been read.

  • Sony/Philips Digital Interface (S/PDIF)

    S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) is a standard audio transfer file format.

  • Sound Designer II (SD2)

    SDII (Sound Designer II, sometimes seen abbreviated as SD2) is a monophonic/stereophonic audio file format, originally developed by Digidesign for their Macintosh-based recording/editing products.

  • spindle

    A spindle is a shaft that holds rotating hard disk drive (HDD) platters in place. The term is also often used to refer to a single HDD.
