The Linux Foundation, which is described as “the nonprofit advancing professional open source management for mass collaboration” has invited Dell EMC to the OpenSDS Project. As part of Dell EMC’s participation in the OpenSDS Project, it has introduced the CoprHD SouthBound SDK (SB SDK) :
“The SB SDK allows developers to build drivers and other tools with the assurance that they will be compatible with a wide variety of enterprise-class storage products.”
The OpenSDS Project consists of the following companies and organizations: Fujitsu, Hitachi Data Systems, Huawei, Oregon State University and Vodafone. Also, the project is seeking collaboration with other open source entities such as Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Docker, OpenStack and Open Container Initiative.
Dell EMC ‘s decision to join the project has been praised by Senior Vice President and Global Chief Technology Officer of storage at Huawei:
“We invite other vendors and enterprise customers to follow Dell EMC’s lead, and to join us in creating an open storage controller solution across cloud, containerized, virtualized and other environments, and make storage-as-a-service a reality.”
