It is SNIA’s mission to host this event and to lead the storage industry worldwide in developing and promoting standards, technologies and educational services in the management of information.

We encourage all that can make the long trip to do so, as the most interesting and important figures in the world of data storage will be in one place at one time. It is a great opportunity to learning something new, get inspired and to make new connections. Oh and to take in some Californian sun of course!
