I’m always amazed by the vast amount of knowledge being posted online for free download. If you are an IT Professional who deals with Storage (or if you manage one of them), check out the high-quality tutorials just posted online by the Storage Network Industry Association (SNIA).
These peer-reviewed, vendor-neutral tutorials, offered by the SNIA Education Committee, cover a variety of very current Storage-related topics. They were delivered live during the recent Storage Networking World conference in Santa Clara, CA (SNW Fall 2012). I delivered one of them and I was also able to attend a few of them in person.
Here’s a snapshot of what they covered, organized by track:
Track: Big Data
Track: Cloud and Emerging Technologies
Track: Data Protection and Management
Track: File Systems and File Management
Track: Green Storage
Track: Professional Development
Track: Solid State Storage
Track: Storage and Storage Management
I would encourage all my industry colleagues to check these out!
To view the slides for each one of the tutorials listed above in PDF format, visit http://www.snia.org/education/tutorials/2012/fall. Be sure to check the Legal Notices on the documents about how you can use them.
For more information about SNIA, check http://www.snia.org/. It's also never too early to plan to check the next wave, to be delivered during the next SNW in the Spring.
