The IT world is growing very fast. Applications require more computing power with every minute we live, and data storage becomes the most growing technological part around the globe. In addition, the share of IT businesses in the cloud is increasing significantly. All of this is making IT storage infrastructure management more and more complicated. In this regard, Storage Management Initiative (SMI) decided to create a specification to make the life of IT administrators easier. SNIA Swordfish provides an API functionality that simplifies the way storage can be allocated, monitored, and managed. This specification is designed to integrate with technologies used in data center environments and make advanced tasks much more simple.
