  • Providing industry experts and thought leadership on Ethernet-connected storage networking technologies
  • Leveraging SNIA and industry events, activities and end-user outreach programs around the globe

The ESF is organized to promote and provide education on the advantages of storage over Ethernet.  The broader adoption of Ethernet as a converged storage networking infrastructure has prompted the ESF to expand its charter and has redefined and expanded its two Special Interest Groups (SIGs): 

  • File Protocols SIG
  • Storage over Ethernet SIG

The Forum’s overall goals for the coming year fall into four categories:

  1. Promote Ethernet as a transport fro converged storage networking solutions
  2. Promote the use of the latest advancedment in industry standard file protocols for data center storage applications
  3. Promote the value of Ethernet-connected storage networking solutions to the industry and its customers
  4. Advocate customer needs and reflect user concerns and issues back into the industry

The ESF members represent leading hardware, software, data storage and data management companies dedicated to providing the global IT community with vendor-neutral information, and educational resources about Ethernet-connected storage solutions.
