This year’s SNIA Storage Developer Conference (SDC) will take place in Santa Clara, CA Sept. 15-18. In addition to an exciting agenda with great speakers, there is an opportunity for vendors to participate in SNIA Plugfests. Two Plugfests that I think are worth noting are: SMB2/SMB3 and iSCSI.
These Plugfests enable a vendor to bring their implementations of SMB2/SMB3 and/or iSCSI to test, identify, and fix bugs in a collaborative setting with the goal of providing a forum in which companies can develop interoperable products. SNIA provides and supports networks and infrastructure for the Plugfest, creating a collaborative framework for testing. Plugfest participants work together to define the testing process, assuring that objectives are accomplished.
Still Time to Register
Great news! There is still time to register. Setup for the Plugfest begins on September 13, 2014 and testing begins on the September 14th.
