As a natural extension to Western Digital's ongoing contributions to various open source projects and standard organizations, and its long history of making its ZBC/ZAC tools available to the open-source community, the company has launched ZonedStorage.io as part of its Zoned Storage Initiative.
ZonedStorage.io is aimed to document support for zoned storage devices available through various open source projects to jump-start application development initiatives within the developer community as well as help data center infrastructure engineers take advantage of zoned storage technologies. This site hosts information about software development libraries, tools, standards information and software resources that provide a unified framework to manage purpose-built ZNS SSDs and capacity-optimized ZBC/ZAC HDDs. Through this open-source initiative, developers can gain confidence in the burgeoning ecosystem of community and industry contributors and supporters.
Questions, requests for additional content, and error reports can be addressed to Western Digital ZonedStorage.io team. An IRC channel and Matrix groups are also available to chat with the zoned storage community.
All questions and remarks including confidential information, information specific to devices that are vendor samples or not publicly available, or specific to a particular zoned storage device product will be ignored. Product specific questions should addressed to the product vendor.
