Tseng’s hopes is that the ASNP will eventually bring both sides together, getting more user input into the standards setting bodies via offical ASNP participation and repesentation.
“I don’t have the time to be on a standards panel, but I can afford one day a quarter to come to an ASNP chapter meeting to discuss the important issues,” said Tseng.
With 23 chapters already existence, including several overseas, Delshad’s goal is to expand membership to over 15,000. By doing so, he believes he will have created a body that can exert a strong influence that will be felt throughout the storage industry
“This validates the need for a user organization like the ASNP,” said Delshad. “We are exiting the start-up stage and are well on our way to becoming a full fledged association that exerts a strong influence on the industry as a whole.”
