IDG Press Release, 3/22/11
Apple co-founder and Silicon Valley icon Steve Wozniak will be among the speakers at SNW Spring 2011, the latest addition to next month’s conference and a fitting complement to SNW’s debut in the heart of the technology industry. Wozniak, who helped vault Silicon Valley into the technology spotlight with the launch of Apple, will speak on innovation at SNW Spring 2011, which is centered on the theme, “Driving Innovation Through the Information Infrastructure.”
This spring’s conference, being held April 4-7 in Santa Clara, marks the first time SNW will be held in Silicon Valley. SNW organizers announced plans to extend the program, including an Emerging Tech Program, a Social Media Studio, data center tours, one and two-day expo passes and other first-ever additions to an event already viewed as the premier conference on storage, infrastructure and the data center.
“SNW has evolved over the years from being a conference focused solely on storage management to becoming the biggest four day event focused on next generation data centers and innovative technologies that are enabling organizations to enjoy longer term sustainability — and this year is no exception,” said John Amato, vice president & publisher, Computerworld. “With SNW Spring 2011 fast approaching, we’re seeing tremendous interest from the IT management community, technology vendors, and the media, and we’re very excited to host the program in Silicon Valley — complete with a keynote by Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak, an emerging tech program, and data center tours.”
