Dell, EMC, Intel and LSI Logic are among the key members of a new consortium, the Storage Bridge Bay Working Group (SBB), which aims to drive standardisation in entry-level external storage targeted at SMBs.

The SBB expects to speed the delivery of emerging storage technologies, such as iSCSI, SAS, archiving and virtual tape libraries. Other members include Adaptec, AMCC, Aristos Logic, Astute Networks, Dot Hill Systems, Neterion, Rasilient Systems, Seagate and Xyratex.

Initially, the SBB will focus on developing and distributing specifications for standardising external disk subsystem technologies.

"With the advent of an SBB standard, a wider base of customers will have the opportunity to deploy advanced storage capabilities previously limited to enterprise class solutions," explains Bill Dawkins, chairman of the SBB.
