Revving Up Storage for Automotive
Tuesday, December 7, 2021
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

The automotive industry is effectively transforming the vehicle into a data center on wheels. Connectedness, autonomous driving, and media & entertainment bring in more and more storage onboard and into the networked data centers. But all the storage in (and for) a car is not created equal. There are 10s if not 100s of different processors on the car. Some are attached to storage and some are not. Each application demands different characteristics from the storage device. Let’s explore all of this in an informational journey with the industry experts from both the storage and automotive worlds.

  • What’s driving growth in automotive storage?
  • Special requirements for autonomous vehicles
  • Where automotive data is typically stored?
  • Special use cases
  • Vehicle networking & compute changes and challenges

Why Use Multiple Clouds?
Tuesday, January 11, 2022
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

As storing data in the cloud has become ubiquitous and mature, many organizations have adopted a multi-cloud strategy. Eliminating dependence on a single cloud platform is quite a compelling case.

But multi-cloud environments are not without challenges. Taking advantage of the benefits without increasing complexity requires a strategy that ensures applications are not tightly coupled to cloud-specific technologies. Supporting a storage abstraction layer that insulates the application from the underlying cloud provider's interfaces allows an application to be easily used with multiple clouds. Join to hear SNIA experts cover:

  • Risk mitigation of multiple clouds
  • Transparent movement of data from cloud to cloud
  • Political, regulatory and compliance considerations
  • Multi-cloud as part of a business continuity strategy
  • Exit cost reduction
  • Running work in parallel across clouds

SNIA Annual Members Symposium
Tuesday, January 25, 2022
Virtual Meeting

We invite you to attend our 2022 Annual Members Symposium virtually this coming year. Since this event is virtual, we have organized updates to members from all the current Technical Working Groups (TWG), the Forums and Initiatives (F&I) and Committees. We would also like to share a virtual lunch session from the leadership about the 2022 vision and plans for SNIA as a whole. Please join us to see who our Membership Award Recipients are for 2021. As always, we are excited to share and support our membership and working groups and highlight some of the great successes of 2021!

Tuesday, February 22 - Thursday, February 24, 2022
Santa Clara, CA

The 20th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '22) will bring together storage-system researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in the design, implementation, evaluation, and deployment of storage systems.
