This article reports that the Hitachi Ltd. has become the latest high profile company to put its weight behind the adoption of open standards for storage networking. It now fully supports the Storage Networking Industry Association's Storage Management Initiative (SMI) aiming to give customers total freedom of choice when using different vendors for storage solutions that need to be interoperable based on industry standards. The initiative is a program designed to develop, standardize and drive the adoption of an open storage management interface based on a Bluefin draft specification. By providing a standard storage management interface the SMI will provide for simplified storage management of multivendor SANs. Hitachi linked this support of the standard quest with the launch of its next-generation Freedom Storage lightning 9900 V systems.
