Provides the standardization for Data / Storage Management APIs. Currently we support block and file APIs for key features of data management (provisioning, migration, fileshare, etc). Working to add the storage management APIs.

This is the key external interface to platforms, which can do a seamless integration with heterogeneous storage backends. 

Users can develop SODA North-Bound Plugins (SODA NBP) under SODA NBP project to connect any platform or application solutions to SODA API from north for all storage/data requirements.

We envision this to be the reference implementation of SODA Data Standard API Specification, which we plan to work with our industry partners and standards bodies. At that stage, this layer will upgraded to support Block, File and Object APIs across the Edge, Core and Cloud.
