The SCSI Trade Association (STA), a member-run industry association established to support and promote SCSI technology, has accepted SCSI Express as a formal project and has taken ownership of refining, defining and marketing this data storage industry standard initiative.

SCSI Express is an industry initiative designed to adapt storage to Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe). It utilizes the SCSI over PCIe (SOP) and PCIe architecture queuing interface (PQI) model being defined within the T10 Technical Committee.

STA has accepted the responsibility for using the efforts of T10 to refine its definition and to market this approach to PCIe-based storage.

The SCSI Trade Association (STA) was established in 1996 to provide a focal point for members to communicate the benefits of SCSI to the industry. STA promotes the understanding and use of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) technology and influences the evolution of SCSI standards to meet future industry needs. The Association has a nine-member Board of Directors, which oversees the Marketing Communications and Technology Committees and all STA activities.
