 Journey to Unified Fabric

Ethernet Storage

The SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum (ESF) is responsible for driving the broad adoption of Ethernet-connected storage networking technologies and solutions by:

  • Creating vendor neutral education materials on Ethernet-connected storage networking technologies
  • Driving market awareness and positioning of the various Ethernet storage technologies
  • Providing industry experts and thought leadership on Ethernet-connected storage networking technologies
  • Leveraging SNIA and industry events, activities and end-user outreach programs around the globe

The ESF is organized to promote and provide education on the advantages of storage over Ethernet.  The broader adoption of Ethernet as a converged storage networking infrastructure has prompted the ESF to expand its charter and has redefined and expanded its two Special Interest Groups (SIGs):

The ESF members represent leading hardware, software, data storage and data management companies dedicated to providing the global IT community with vendor-neutral information, and educational resources about Ethernet-connected storage solutions.

  • Congestion Control in New Storage Architectures Q&A

    Taken from blog post at

    We had a great response to last week’s Webcast “Controlling Congestion in New Storage Architectures” where we introduced CONGA, a new congestion control mechanism that is the result of research at Stanford University. We had many good questions at the live event and have complied answers for all of them in this blog. If you think of additional questions, please feel free to comment here and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

  • Storage Performance Benchmarking Q and A

    Taken from blog post at

    Our recent SNIA-ESF webcast, “Storage Performance Benchmarking: Introduction and Fundamentals” really struck a chord! It was our most highly rated and well attended webcast to date with more than 300 people at the live event. If you missed it, it’s now available on-demand. Thanks again to my colleagues, Ken Cantrell and Mark Rogov, who did an outstanding job explaining the basics and setting the stage for our next webcast in this series, “Storage Performance Benchmarking: Part 2“ on October 21st. Mark your calendar! Our audience had many great questions and there just wasn’t enough time to answer them all, so as promised, here are answers to all the questions we received.
