I attended the INCITS T10 (SCSI) meeting on January 13 to 16 in a warm and sunny Orange County. The highlights of the meeting:
- One of my perennial favorites, Atomic Writes and Reads (13-064r8) was passed in the CAP committee meeting with 11 yes and 3 no votes, but when it was reviewed in the plenary meeting, it failed to pass with 4 yes and 8 no votes. Back to the drawing board.
- SPC-4 Letter ballot comment resolution (13-256r3) continued, with some 800 comments remaining to be resolved.
- Work began in earnest on the Zoned Block Commands (ZBC 14-051r3) specification for SCSI zoned block devices, notably those employing shingled write.
My complete notes for the meeting can be found here.
Storage Visions 2014 Conference
I had the opportunity to attend the well attended Storage Visions 2014 conference in Las Vegas last week, right before CES hit. I gave a SNIA Tutorial on secure storage and you can find the slides here.
