Virtual Instruments’ Principal Systems Engineer Peter Murray Named to SNIA 2018 Technical Council

By Len Rosenthal, CMO

sniaWe are thrilled to announce that Peter Murray, Principal Systems Engineer and Technical Evangelist here at Virtual Instruments, has been re-appointed to the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) 2018 Technical Council. Peter has been deeply involved in the SNIA for many years and was a member of the organization’s 2017 Technical Council, as well as the co-chair for the SNIA Solid State Storage System Technical Working Group.

For those who may not know, SNIA is a non-profit global organization whose member companies span the global storage market. SNIA’s mission is to lead the worldwide storage industry in developing and promoting standards, technologies and educational services to empower organizations in the management of information. The SNIA Technical Council is key to guiding the execution of the SNIA’s mission and vision by providing technical governance subject to the approval of the Board of the Directors.

Peter joined Virtual Instruments through our merger with Load DynamiX in April 2016, and Peter’s expertise in storage and network performance testing led to his re-appointment to the SNIA Technical Council. Peter presented two sessions on storage array testing at the SNIA Storage Developer Conference (SDC) this past September. Attendees learned about best practices for testing modern solid-state storage arrays and discussed strategies for implementing storage arrays in production environments. Peter additionally supported the SMB3 plugfest at SDC.

We’re proud to have technical leaders such as Peter on the Virtual Instruments team. His expertise in storage infrastructure validation, application workload generation and storage technology validation plays a major part in our ability to help our customers understand how their storage infrastructure is performing – as well as how they can maximize its performance to support the requirements of next-generation data centers.
