Solid State Memory and Storage Visions

Moderator:  Brian Berg, Berg Software Design

Solid state memory technology is enlarging our visions of the future of storage and memory applications.  NVMe enables fast storage unhindered by legacy HDD interface standards.  NVMe over Fabrics is extending these standards to create new levels of systems connectivity.  Persistent Memory, such as DIMM-based flash memory enables the movement of content closer to processing.  New computing and network architectures will carry this further, enabling memory-centric processing.  Emerging memory technologies are enlarging the tiers of solid state storage for consumer, client as well as enterprise applications.  Participating in the session will give you a solid foundation for how these advances enable your business.
