  1. Storage Security Comes of Age

    25 November 2014 - By Eric Hibbard, SNIA Security TWG and ISO Editor of ISO/IEC 27040 (HDS)

    First published in DCS UK - October 2014

    Many organizations face the challenge of implementing data protection and security measures to meet a wide range of requirements, including statutory and regulatory compliance. All too often, the implemented measures fail to address the security associated with storage systems and infrastructure (i.e., storage security) because of misconceptions and limited familiarity with the storage technology, or in the case of storage managers and administrators, a limited understanding of the inherent risks or basic security concepts. The net result of this situation is that digital assets are needlessly placed at risk of compromise due to data breaches, intentional corruption, being held hostage, or other malicious events.

  2. The Bigger the Better

    04 November 2014 - By Gilda Foss, SNIA Analytics and Big Data Committee (NetApp)

    First published in DCS Europe - October 2014

    So much data, multiplying by the second, and a never-ending opportunity to watch it grow… The power we can achieve from analyzing big data is endless. The volume of data created by U.S. companies alone each year is enough to fill ten thousand Libraries of Congress. This is a mind-blowing stat, yet there are so many more like it that exemplifies the explosive growth of data today.

  3. Object Storage 201 Q&A

    31 October 2014 - Taken from blog post at

    Now available on-demand, our recent live CSI Webcast, “Object Storage 201: Understanding Architectural Trade-Offs,” was a highly-rated event that almost 250 (edit: now 500) people have seen to date. We did not have time to address all of the questions, so here are answers to them. If you think of additional questions, please feel free to comment on this blog.

  4. Three Levels of Readiness

    21 October 2014 - By Glyn Bowden, SNIA Europe UK Committee (HP)

    First published in DCS UK - September 2014

    When looking to deploy cloud services it’s never going to be a binary transformation. There are very few organisations that have existing IT services that will just be able to transition from that current state to a full cloud solution. This is true no matter what technology is deployed as the solution, it will always be an iterative progression where gains are steadily realised.

  5. SNIA Europe members packages from €4,500 at the new and remastered Powering the Cloud

    01 October 2014 - Event now over, but keep an eye out for future event discounts as a member of SNIA Europe!

  6. NVM Programming Model: A Catalyst for Disruptive Change in Data Centers Around the World

    30 September 2014 - By Walt Hubis, Vice-Chair of SNIA's Solid State Storage Initiative (Hubis Technical Associates)

    First published in SNS Europe - September 2014

    Recent advances in non-volatile memory (NVM) technologies are blurring the line between storage and memory and causing a disruptive change to the way software is written. These technologies have the potential to transform the future with performance a thousand times faster than flash.

  7. Expanding Your Data Center with FCoE – Q&A

    16 September 2014 -

    Taken from blog post at

    At the recent live ESF Webcast, “Expert Insights: Expanding the Data Center with FCoE,” SNIA ESF examined the current state of FCoE and looked at how this protocol can expand the agility of the data center if you missed it, it’s now available on-demand. As there was not have time to address all the questions, here are answers to them all. If you think of additional questions, please feel free to comment on this blog.

  8. What’s Happening with 25GbE

    04 September 2014 - Originally from blog at
    By David Chalupsky (Intel)

    In July 2014, IEEE 802.3 voted to form a Study Group for 25Gb/s Ethernet. There has been a lot attention in the networking press lately about 25Gb/s Ethernet, but many people are asking what is it and how did we get here. After all, 802.3 already has completed standards for 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s and is currently working on 400Gb/s, so from a pure speed perspective, starting a 25Gb/s project now does look like a step backwards.

  9. SNIA NVM Programming Model Selected by Flash Memory Summit as a 2014 Best of Show Award Winner

    08 August 2014 - Recognized as Most Innovative Flash Memory Enterprise Business Application

  10. Software Defined Storage

    29 July 2014 - By Alex McDonald, SNIA Europe Board of Directors, DMTF OSDDC member (NetApp)

    First published in DCS Europe - Summer 2014

    You'd have to be living in a cave not to have heard the latest IT buzzword; software defined. I first heard this phrase at a seminar about two years ago in the context of work Stanford University was doing on SDN (storage defined networking). Even back then, there were the rumblings of extending it out to include and define SDS (software defined storage) and an encompassing SDDC (the software defined datacenter).
