SNIA Symposium 2019

Starting next week (Monday Jan 21, 2019) SNIA will be holding its Annual Member Symposium at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara. This event hosts a number technical work groups covering not only SNIA technologies, but also covers DMTF technologies. For more direct information regarding this event, see these two links;



The first 3 days of the event are the technical working groups, and the last 2 days will be the closed face-to-face meetings with the SNIA Board. I will be attending this event in person and participating in the Technical Work Groups and will also attend the face-to-face meeting representing all of HPE as the elected board member.

SNIA is rather interesting is that the entire governing board is made from elected volunteers from the member companies. The entire board can be viewed here;


I will be attending the following technical work groups and will post an few blog entries from the event itself with my observations;
