LONDON -- The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) Europe today announced the dates of its upcoming Academy series. Following the success of the past sessions, new locations have been added to bring expert, vendor-independent education on all matters related to data storage and management to end users in various countries throughout the EMEA region.

The SNIA Europe Academy takes the vendor-independent tutorial content at the heart of the SNW Europe conference, the associations flagship event (, on the road to reach a wider European, Middle Eastern and African IT audience. The Academy has attracted almost 1,200 delegates in the past two years, in Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Switzerland, Russia and the United Arab Emirates (Dubai) with great results and positive delegate feedback.

The schedule for the remainder of 2007 and the first half of 2008 published by SNIA Europe and the organisers, Angel Business Communications, sees Academy events planned for, Rome, Zurich, Dubai, Stockholm, Copenhagen, London and Moscow:

  • Rome: 30th November 2007

  • Dubai: 5th February 2008

  • Zurich: 26th February 2008

  • Copenhagen: 1st April 2008

  • Stockholm: 3rd April 2008

  • London: May 2008 (final date TBC)

  • Moscow: 4th June 2008

The Academy’s first visit to Italy in late November will take place in Rome in order to provide the Italian government and public sector organisations with the unique blend of impartial and educational content that the programme delivers. Another debutant on the calendar is the UK with the first Academy in London planned for May 2008. Topics covered by the tutorials and presentations at the various Academy locations will include:

  • Solving the coming archive crisis

  • Archiving and compliance infrastructure

  • Trends in data protection - CDP and VTL

  • Introduction to storage security

  • ABCs of data encryption

‘So many countries in EMEA are becoming new adopters of the latest data storage technologies because local organisations are implementing new technologies in a bid to better support their businesses,’ said Juergen Arnold, Chairman, SNIA Europe. ‘It is therefore of paramount importance that they are offered expert information and independent guidance and SNIA Europe is ideally positioned to fulfil this role.’
