    This most recent honor recognizes TWG work on creating next generation programming models, and follows an August 2014 award to the NVM Programming Model as a Best of Show at Flash Memory Summit for the Most Innovative Flash Memory Enterprise Business Application.

    The SNIA Non Volatile Memory (NVM) Programming Technical Work Group (TWG) delivers specifications describing the behavior of a common set of software interfaces that provide access to non-volatile memory (NVM). The TWG goal is to encourage a common ecosystem for NVM-enabled software without limiting the ability to innovate.

    The TWG’s current work is the NVM Programming Model specification.  This specification describes behavior used by applications and kernel components to access:

    • Emerging features for traditional block NVM (SSDs) and
    • A new programming model for persistent memory (PM) – NVM hardware designed to be treated by software similarly to system memory.
