SNIA launches Cloud Storage Technologies Initiative

SNIA says that its Cloud Storage Initiative has expanded its mission and charter and changed its name to the Cloud Storage Technologies Initiative (CSTI).  The mission of the CSTI is to support and promote the adoption, growth and standardization of storage in cloud infrastructures, including its data services, orchestration and management, and the promotion of portability of data in multi-cloud environments.

“The cloud storage debate has been won,” said Alex McDonald, Chair of the SNIA CSTI. “There is no doubt that enterprises are storing data in the cloud. The challenges now extend to data mobility and portability, multi-cloud environments, understanding hyperscale requirements and the role standards play.”


The expanded charter and new name reflect the need to support cloud business models and architectures such as OpenStack, software defined storage, Kubernetes and object storage. The CSTI welcomes all those interested in cloud storage to join us in educating the market and promoting cloud data services, orchestration and management.

The CSTI is an active group that publishes articles and white papers, speaks at industry conferences and presents at highly-rated webcasts that have been viewed by thousands.
