The first version of EMC's XAM software developer kit (SDK) is now officially available. In addition to Mark's post on the subject, here's another link to a site that puts together the whole picture of EMC's first public release of the XAM SDK.
There were a couple of challenges regarding this release:
- The challenge of generating a new industry standard for reference information
- A coding challenge
The first challenge represents the very difficult task of galvanizing the industry to come up with an alternative, industry standard way to interface with fixed-content devices like Centera.
The second challenge represents a contest.
