Conformance Test Program


In 2003 the SNIA created the Conformance Test Program (CTP) to test vendor conformance to the SMI-Specification and support the adoption of SMI enabled products. Owned and operated by the SNIA, the CTP is the testing process to validate the numerous vendor implementations of the SMI-Specification. This testing process is a critical building block in the effort to make multi-vendor storage operate in a predictable manner for end users. Products that pass the CTP offer End Users more confidence in the management interoperability of the technology they are purchasing reducing the risk when deploying complex networked solutions.
