This SCSI command set is designed to provide efficient peer-to-peer operation of input/output logical units by an operating system using Object Based Storage commands. Objects designate entities in which computer systems store data. The purpose of the OSD abstraction is to assign to the storage device the responsibility for managing where data is located on the device.
