[External] Re: [OCP-Storage] Storage Workgroup - SSD Form Factor Meetup, October 29
I whole heartedly confirm the “formfactor proliferation” discussion is needed
(sarcastically, if 2 more FF, mind as well send a customer a bag of chips and soldering iron and let him build “just that very special shaped drive he really wants” himself).
Thanks for your efforts

Is this confirmed yet?
On Behalf Of Jason Adrian
We currently are seeing a proliferation in SSD form factors. Can we debate as a wider audience the pro's and con's of each and ideally reduce the number of desired form factors? We've got U.2, m.2, 2 variants of El.L, 4 variants of E1.S, NF1, etc.
Mechanical form factors
Since we have the HDD focused workshop on October 28, we decided to create this 1-off topic as the community has the ability to steer the broader industry and now is an optimal time. We think this will be a ~4 hour workshop, and are looking for a potential host. Please RSVP if you are interested below, and let us know if you could host this event.

Yes, we are confirmed! I will be sending out the official invite and logistics shortly. Western Digital has offered to host this at their San Jose facility. This will happen on October 29, from 1-5PM. Full details to follow.
