“SSDs: Enabling the Next Wave of Growth in the PC Industry” – SanDisk’s Kevin Conley
SSDs are re-energizing the PC industry, leading some industry pundits to declare 2012 to be the “year of the SSD”...The explosive growth in SSDs is being driven by the emergence of ultra-thin laptops and the promise of new, higher-performing desktops for consumers and businesses. Vice President, Enterprise Storage Brendan Collins
IT must build and maintain complex multi-tiered storage systems for lowest TCO to support the cloud, virtualization, big data, online content and social networking...ReRAM that promise excellent scalability with shrinking design rules.
“Solid State Drives – From Disruptive to the New Normal” – Intel Corporate Vice President, General Manager Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group Rob Crooke
Non-volatile memory has a history of changing the way people use products. Photography, books, and music are great examples of experiences that have been forever enriched by digitization and non-volatile memory. Likewise, SSDs bring dramatic advantages to computing, upgrading the experience to new norms. We are on the cusp of transitioning SSDs from a disruptive technology to the new normal...Several market challenges must be addressed and overcome to make it a reality. Solutions Glen Hawk
A major shift is happening in the mobile computing and enterprise markets, and it’s because of flash storage. Flash-based architectures have enabled the connected world, providing fast access to information anywhere, anytime...Mr. Hawk will explain why now is the time for flash-based storage—it’s fast, reliable and more cost-effective than ever before. )
“Accelerating Business Applications with Flash Memory” – Oracle Vice President ZFS Storage Engineering Scott Tracy

“Revolution!...Vice President of Technical Marketing Scott Stetzer
Many data center and IT managers worry about flash endurance. Flash wears out when you write to it, but is this really a concern?...SSD users face a variety of tradeoffs from purchase through deployment and extended use. New technologies can reduce the severity of problems that impact wear, but as you'll learn, it's not up to the flash to solve these challenges -- it's all about the SSD.
