    October 13th, 2016

    SNIA’s 18th Storage Developer Conference is officially a success, with 124 general and breakout sessions;  Cloud Interoperability, Kinetiplugfest 5c Storage, and SMB3 plugfests; ten Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions, and amazing networking among 450+ attendees.  Sessions on NVMe over Fabrics won the title of most attended, but Persistent Memory, Object Storage, and Performance were right behind.  Many thanks to SDC 2016 Sponsors, who engaged attendees in exciting technology discussions.

    For those not familiar with SDC, this technical industry event is designed for a variety of storage technologists at various levels from developers to architects to product managers and more.  And, true to SNIA’s commitment to educating the industry on current and future disruptive technologies, SDC content is now available to all – whether you attended or not – for download and viewing.

    All SDC presentations are now available for download; and over the next few months, you can continue to download SDC podcasts which combine audio and slides. The first podcast from SDC 2016 – on hyperscaler (as well as all 2015 SDC Podcasts) are available here, and more will be available in the coming weeks.

    SNIA thanks all its members and colleagues who contributed to make SDC a success! A special thanks goes out to the SNIA Technical Council, a select group of acknowledged industry experts who work to guide SNIA technical efforts. In addition to driving the agenda and content for SDC, the Technical Council oversees and manages SNIA Technical Work Groups, reviews architectures submitted by Work Groups, and is the SNIA’s technical liaison to standards organizations. Learn more about these visionary leaders at http://www.snia.org/about/organization/tech_council.

    And finally, don’t forget to mark your calendars now for SDC 2017 – September 11-14, 2017, again at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara. Watch for the Call for Presentations to open in February 2017.


    Cloud Storage: Solving Interoperability Challenges

    June 27th, 2016

    Cloud storage has transformed the storage industry, however interoperability challenges that were overlooked during the initial stages of growth are now emerging as front and center issues. I hope you will join us on July 19th for our live Webcast, “Cloud Storage: Solving Interoperability Challenges,” to learn the major challenges facing the use of businesses services from multiple cloud providers and moving data from one cloud provider to another.

    We’ll discuss how the SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface standard (CDMI) addresses these challenges by offering data and metadata portability between clouds and explain how the SNIA CDMI Conformance Test Program helps cloud storage providers achieve CDMI conformance.

    Join us on July 19th to learn:

    • Critical challenges that the cloud storage industry is facing
    • Issues in a multi-cloud API environment
    • Addressing cloud storage interoperability challenges
    • How the CDMI standard works
    • Benefits of CDMI conformance testing
    • Benefits for end user companies

    You can register today. We look forward to seeing you on July 19th.
