As an international industry association committed to the advancement of storage and information management worldwide, the SNIA has established several Regional Affiliates and Geographic Forums outside of the US since its formation in 1997. SNIA Affiliates develop and deploy local activities in support of the SNIA's global mission.

SNIA Regional Groups are classified by their level of activity, number of corporate members, and level of incorporation. In this way we encourage local groups to start a Community, grow to the Committee stage, and then apply to become a Regional Affiliate/Forum.

The SNIA currently has Regional Groups in the following locations:
