Does Your World Include Storage? Don’t Miss SDC!

Whether storage is already a main focus of your career or may be advancing toward you, you’ll definitely want to attend the flagship event for storage developers – and those involved in storage operations, decision making, and usage – SNIA’s 19th annual Storage Developer Conference (SDC), September 11-14, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara, California.

The SNIA Technical Council has again put together a wide-ranging technical agenda featuring more than 125 industry experts from 60 companies and industry organizations, including Dell/EMC, Docker, FCIA, Google, Hitachi, HPE, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, NetApp, Oracle, Samsung, SAP, STA, and Toshiba.

Over four days, network with fellow architects, developers, integrators, and users, and choose from 100+ sessions, three plugfests, and six Birds-of-a-Feather deep dives on a wide range of cutting edge technologies.

Current General Session speakers are Sage Weil from Red Hat on Building a New Storage Backend for Ceph and Martin Petersen from Oracle on Recent Developments in the Linux I/O Stack.

Among the 15+ topic areas featured at the conference are sessions on:

* Flash and Persistent Memory

* Big Data, Analytics, and the Internet-of-Things

* Storage Resource Management

* Storage Performance and Workloads

* Containers

* Object and Object Drive Storage

* Cloud Storage

* Storage Security and Identity Management

* Data Performance and Capacity Optimization

Network with our sponsors Intel, Cisco, IBM, Kalray, Radian, OpenSDS, Celestica, Chelsio, MemoScale, Newisys, SerNet, and Xilinx. Check out special demonstrations in our “Flash Community” area.

If you’re a vendor wanting to test product interoperability, grab this chance to participate in one or more of the SDC plugfests underwritten by Microsoft, NetApp, SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative, and SNIA Storage Management Initiative (SMI): Cloud Interoperability, SMB3, and SMI Lab focused on SNIA Swordfish™ open to all with SNIA Swordfish™ implementations. Find all the details here.

Plan to attend our Plugfest open house on Monday evening, welcome reception on Tuesday evening, and a special SNIA 20th anniversary celebration open to SDC attendees and invited guests on Wednesday, September 13.
