Meetings are open to anyone interested in discussing data storage in a vendor-neutral, education-focused environment.
SNUG events are 100% free! We only ask that you join the
email notification list
so we can announce meetings and collect RSVPs -- this helps to insure we've planned for enough meeting space (and food!) We never share our
member information -- in fact, the only required item we ask for is an email address to send SNUG announcements to.
What to expect
Never been to a SNUG event? Here's what to expect:
- SNUG meetings consist of an educational presentation by an experienced professional in the field of storage. Presentations include time for Q&A. SNUG does its best to insure all content is unbiased and vendor-neutral.
- SNUG meetings are held at lunchtime and usually include a free lunch!
(Did we mention that you can bring a friend?) Be sure to sign up on the email list and RSVP so we'll know much much seating and food to arrange.
Lunch begins 30 minutes before the presentation and is a great opportunity to meet and network with other storage professionals.
- Meeting venues are scheduled to allow some "mingle" time after the official close of the meeting. This post-meeting time is another good opportunity to network as well as inquire about specific vendors, products and services that a presenter may have avoided commenting on during the "vendor-neutral" presentation.
