  1. An Introduction to the Storage Bridge Bay Specification

  2. Key Points • A new open platform for storage innovations to benefit customers through standardization: • Accelerating the availability of new technologies such as: • iSCSI • SAS • Storage applications (e.g., VTL, archive) • Delivering increased quality and affordability

  3. Broad Industry Collaboration Membership is growing daily. Expect steady membership growth to continue.

  4. What SBB is • A specification created by a non-profit working group that is defining a mechanical/electrical interface between a passive backplane drive array and the electronics packages that give the array its “personality”

  5. InfiniBand PCIExpress / AS JBOD RAID NAS Archive iSCSI SAN FC SAN VTL Storage Bridge Bay Specification Concept: • Standardize storage controller slots (SBB) • One chassis many controllers LAN SAN

  6. SBB Storage Bridge Bay Specification Concept: • Standardize storage controller slots (SBB) • One controller many chassis

  7. Platform Spending Development Time Storage Bridge Bay Benefits End User Benefit: Increased Quality, Faster Access to New Technologies, Greater Range of Product Offerings, Lower Cost Increased Innovation Equipment ProviderCost of Goods* Validation & Test Validation & Test Software & Solution R&D Software & Solution R&D Increased Investment* in solution value Platform R&D Proprietary Hardware and ASICs Platforms built on standard silicon & system building blocks Platform R&D Commercial CPU and Building Blocks * Actual Investment will vary – conceptual chart based on Intel Marketing

  8. Key Elements • Targeted at low and mid range storage • Modular backplane connector • Supports • Up to 28 drives - SAS, SATA, FC • Redundant bridges/controllers • Redundant management interface and VPD Chassis front view Chassis rear view Note: Actual enclosure designs will not match these drawings

  10. Specification Status 1.0 H1’06 0.6 Draft Q1’06 2.0 H1‘07 2006 2007 2005 Prior work Rev 0.6 • Connector/signal definitions • Mechanicals • Basic enclosure management (VPD) Rev 1.0 – Spec. Completion Pre Release work • Complete SI requirements • Specification ratification SBB Rev 1.0 Release V2.0 Effort Rev 2.0 – Further Standardization • Refined sheet metal requirements • Allowances for more power Specification First Products

  11. Summary • A standardization effort to benefit end users • Increased quality • Faster access to new technologies • Wider range of product offerings • Lower cost • A new organization with broad industry support • A specification defining the mechanical/electrical interface between disk enclosures and “personality” modules For more information contact sbbadmin@sbbwg.org or Attend the SBB session at the Intel Developer Forum. Session STGS003 on March 8th at 2:00 p.m. Moscone Center West, San Francisco
