Summary

2013

was a year of continued financial prudence and performance. We are once
again projecting a
“break
-
even”
financial performance or slight surplus.

Despite industry mergers and acquisitions, SNIA has been able to maintain for a
third consecutive year a steady revenue stream of membership revenue
based on new/replacement members and added Forum and Initiative activity.

2013 was an important year as SNIA continued to pursue its strategic programs
to reinforce the value of
linking core storage technologies and standards
with upper layers of management functions for data and information

CSI, GSI, SSSI, SMI… and now with LTFS,
PCIe

and N
-
V M


2014 will present interesting opportunities for SNIA:


A number of our technical initiatives enter commercial adoption and test
-
validation phases,


New technology trends such as software defined XXX extend into existing trends for enterprise
big data, cloud, persistent storage memory, and

open source,


Our new Technology Center in Colorado Springs extends our commitment to the region and
technical programs wrapped around our specifications. (Move by December 31
st
).
