The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) is hosting the 7th Storage Developer Conference (SDC) in the Hyatt Regency in beautiful Santa Clara, CA (Silicon Valley) on the week of September 20th. As usual, Microsoft is underwriting the CIFS/SMB/SMB2 Plugfest, which is co-located with the SDC event.
For developers working with storage-related technologies, this event gathers a unique crowd and includes a rich agenda that you can find at http://www.snia.org/events/storage-developer2010/agenda2010. All the key industry players are represented. It lists presentations from Atrato, Brocade, EMC, Facebook, Fujitsu America, Google, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Isilon Systems, LSI, Microsoft, NetApp, Novell, Oracle, Panasas, Quantum Corporation, TATA Consultancy Services, the Samba Team, Unisys, VMware, Wipro Technologies, Xiotech and many others.
It’s always worth reminding you that the SDC presentations are usually delivered to developers by the actual product development teams and frequently the actual developer of the technology is either delivering the presentation or is in the room to take questions. That kind of deep insight is not common in every conference out there.
