About the SNIA Cloud Burst Summit

There are a multitude of events dedicated to cloud computing, but where can you go to find out specifically about cloud storage? The SNIA Cloud Burst Summit educates and offers insight into this fast-growing market segment. Come hear from industry luminaries, see live demonstrations, and talk to technology vendors about how to get started with cloud storage.

Audience and Conference Focus

The audience for the SNIA Cloud Burst Summit is IT storage professionals and related colleagues who are looking to cloud storage as a solution for their IT environments. The day’s agenda will be packed with presentations from cloud industry luminaries, the latest cloud development panel discussions, a focus on cloud backup, and a cocktail networking opportunity in the evening.

The SNIA has been actively driving standards for nearly a decade. They have gained a reputation for vendor neutral collaboration, while developing and promoting standards that benefit the entire storage community. Their release of the Cloud Data Management Interface specification provides a critical building block for the cloud storage industry . . . the interoperability needed to enable vendors and users alike to take the next step towards widespread cloud computing.
