The SNIA GSI was recently awarded 'Most Outstanding Achievements of a Forum or Initiative in 2011', this award is for the Forum or Initiative which in 2011 significantly advanced a cause for SNIA with its achievements leading to an impact on the industry or the Association.
Patrick Stanko (Oracle and Green Storage TWG Chair) was awarded the 'Unsung Hero Honoree', this award is presented to an individual who continually works tirelessly under the radar expecting no accolades or attention but who in fact probably deserves more than the rest.
