Texas Memory Systems Joins the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA)

Houston, Texas—May 30, 2001—Texas Memory Systems announced today that it has joined as an Associate Member of the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA). SNIA and its members are dedicated to ensuring that storage networks become complete and trusted solutions across the IT community. The SNIA works toward this goal by forming and sponsoring technical work groups, by producing the Storage Networking World Conference series, by building and maintaining a vendor neutral Technology Center in Colorado Springs, and by promoting activities that expand the breadth and quality of the storage networking market.

“The SNIA plays an important role in the development and education of the storage networking market,” commented Woody Hutsell Marketing Director for Texas Memory Systems, “and as a vendor in the storage community it is incumbent upon us to participate in the industry through participation in SNIA.” Over 200 storage companies are members of the SNIA.
“With the explosion of interest in storage, has come some complexity that the industry has never experienced”, said Holly Frost CEO of Texas Memory Systems, “SNIA is doing an admirable job trying to provide some guidance for both vendors and users of storage. We are strong supporters of the SNIA efforts to create interoperability test suites for the storage industry and look forward to participating in the Technology Center located in Colorado Springs.”

Texas Memory Systems will be a part of the Storage Networking World Interoperability Lab and plans to exhibit at the Storage Networking World Conference October 22-24, 2001 in Orlando, FL.
