11:30 to 12:00 AM C1: Please Don’t Go Away: Bringing Non-Volatile Memory to Tomorrow’s Storage Architectures
Session Sponsor: SNIA
The advent of non-volatile or persistent memory (PM) will cause a huge change in computing. Full adoption of this technology will take years, but there are important recent developments that make it appropriate for those who will begin to benefit most powerfully from NVM capabilities to take action. This session, will include leading members of the SNIA NVM Programming Technical Working Group, as well as vendors of persistent memory products and features discussion on the benefits of persistent memory in storage and system memory application, information on version 1.0 of a programming spec by the NVM Programming TWG and discussion regarding non-volatile DIMMs, NVDIMMs. NVDIMMs can be thought of as the entry point to persistent memory. The panel is intended to motivate OSVs and ISVs that will benefit from and will need to contribute to PM capabilities to take action NOW.

Long Term Content Protection and Archiving
Session Sponsor: Oracle
High resolution content won’t last forever unless content owners create a rational archive that includes good metadata and digital asset management. Today’s archives serve as active libraries for a multitude of content distribution networks as well as long-term content repositories. As the complexity and resolution of digital content increases, archiving technology will play a bigger role in making sure today’s content survives. This session will help you with your long term data protection plan.
Moderator: Dennis Waid, Peripheral Research Corp.
11:15 to 12:00 AM C2: Business Advantages of Storing and Accessing Digital Assets in Real-Time
Session Sponsor: Spectra Logic
The traditional definition of an archive no longer fits the needs and requirements of today’s media and entertainment environments. The ability to quickly search and access large repositories of digital content is a competitive advantage that drives business success. Editors and content creators need to access digital assets in real-time without having to involve the IT department, plus they need a way to do this within the parameters of typically tight budget constraints. These needs, coupled with rapid content growth, have forced storage administrators and broadcast industry professionals to take a closer look at today’s best practices for architecting storage infrastructures. This panel session, organized by the Active Archive Alliance, will intimately discuss the way active archive technology is delivering a new level of capability to media and entertainment IT environments, allowing them to store and easily retrieve data in ways that were not previously possible.
