SNIA Announces DNA Data Storage Technology Affiliate

On June 23, 2022, SNIA took another leap forward in the industry, announcing that the DNA Data Storage Alliance has joined SNIA as a Technology Affiliate to begin technical work and standards development for DNA Data Storage.
Digital data stored in DNA has the potential to last reliably for thousands of years with little to no power consumption or need for maintenance, making it a strong contender for long-term archival data storage. The work in this Technology Affiliate Group will focus on standardized interfaces, methods, and best practices to create a global interoperable ecosystem from which both solution providers and clients will benefit.
The SNIA Technology Affiliate Program enables groups to rapidly begin standards development work. By combining SNIA’s 25 years of experience in open standards development with the market requirements gathered by the DNA Data Storage Alliance, the group can immediately jumpstart the standards development for DNA data storage.

Storage Life on the Edge: Accelerated Performance Strategies
July 12, 2022
Amanda Saunders, NVIDIA; Tushar Gohad, Intel; Alex McDonald, Independent Consultant
An increasing percentage of data is generated and processed at the edge of the network. With this trend comes the need for faster computing, access to storage, and movement of data at the edge as well as between the edge and the data center. This webcast will cover:
  • The increasing need to do more at the edge across compute, storage and networking
  • The rise of intelligent edge locations
  • Different solutions that provide faster processing or data movement at the edge
  • How computational storage can speed up data processing and transmission at the edge
  • Security considerations for edge processing
Kubernetes is Everywhere – What About Cloud Native Storage?
July 19, 2022
Alex Chircop, Ondat; Nick Connolly, DataCore Software; Michael St-Jean, Red Hat; Alex McDonald, SNIA Cloud Storage Technologies Initiative Chair
Organizations are adopting containers at an increasingly rapid rate. In fact, there are few organizations that haven’t implemented containers in their environment today.
Storage implications for Kubernetes will be the topic of this live webcast where storage experts from SNIA and Kubernetes experts from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) will discuss:
  • Key storage attributes of cloud native storage for Kubernetes
  • How do we use cloud native storage in Kubernetes environments?
  • Workloads and real-world use cases
This webcast will help you better understand and address storage and persistent data challenges in a Kubernetes environment.
