Meeting: Storage Network Users Group (SNUG)
The February SNUG meeting will have a special focus on Interoperability issues. The end-users who took the SNIA-sponsored End User Council 2004 and 2005 Surveys identified Interoperability as a problem and the End User Council took this message back to the SNIA board. At the October 2005 Storage Networking World, SNIA board members asked end-users directly about Interoperability. What they discovered was that the problem has many layers of complexity. This SNUG meeting offers our members a chance to talk directly to a sponsoring SNIA Board member who will help drive SNIA directives to address Interoperability.
