IP Storage Forum Elects Leaders

SAN FRANCISCO -- At the Storage Networking Industry Associations (SNIA) recent Winter Symposium, the SNIA IP Storage Forum (IPSF) introduced its newly elected leadership team and outlined their plans to further drive the adoption of IP-based Storage Area Network (SAN) solutions through global marketing initiatives and end-user education during 2007.

The IPSF is composed of leading computer, data storage and data management vendors as well as resellers dedicated to providing the IT community with vendor-neutral information, education and exposure to IP-based SAN storage technologies. The IPSF governing board for 2007 consists of: chair, David Dale of Network Appliance; vice chair, Prasad Pammidimukkala of Brocade; treasurer, Doug Rainbolt of Alacritech; marketing director, Robbin Higby of EqualLogic; and business development director, Don Mead of FalconStor Software.

“2006 was another successful year for iSCSI SAN technologies as they solidified their position as a robust and affordable storage solution, replacing direct-attached storage for mission critical Windows environments,” said David Dale, SNIA IP Storage Forum chair. “We anticipate continued growth in 2007, as complete and robust solutions for Linux, Unix and virtual server environments gain traction, and 10Gb Ethernet based solutions drive the technology into high performance environments.”
