Overview: The aim of the SSD Form Factor Working Group is to focus on developing and promoting specifications of PCIe SSD interfaces by building industry momentum around key customer benefits including performance, features, form factor, availability, and serviceability. The SSD Form Factor Working Group is dedicated to advancing technology in three areas: a connector specification - which will promote interoperability of several storage protocols, supporting SAS/SATA 3.0 as well as PCIe 3.0. (this allows greater user choice and flexibility); a form factor - which builds upon the current 2.5" standard to enable enclosure flexibility while supporting the new connector definition, and expanding the power envelope in support of higher performance; and the support for hot plug capability - creating high availability and serviceability benefits.
