Mobie Computing Mania, Cloud Adoption, and Explosion of Big Data Trigger Rapid Rise of Super-Fast Flash Memory in the Enterpise

Flash Memory Summit Conference 2012

Enterprise IT users will learn how flash memory and enterprise SSDs can lower latency, increase application performance, and help to control storage sprawl and runaway infrastructure costs

Flash Memory Summit, Santa Clara, CA, July 30, 2012 -- Every minute of every day, insatiable emailers send 204,166,667 messages. Google receives more than two million search queries, and mobile maniacs download more than 47,000 apps from the Apple store. The cumulative impact of big data, mobile computing and data-hungry apps is driving enterprises to adopt flash memory -- aka Solid State Storage or Enterprise SSDs. That’s because flash memory enables enterprise users to access essential data –10x to 1000x faster than conventional hard disk drives (HDDs) or shared Fibre Channel storage area network (SAN) infrastructures.

At Flash Memory Summit 2012, August 22-23 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, the new SSD Enterprise Applications Track will debut: "V" is for Velocity: Getting Rapid Results in Big Data, Cloud Storage, and Database Acceleration. Enterprise IT users will learn how flash memory and enterprise SSDs can lower latency, increase application performance, and help to control storage sprawl and runaway infrastructure costs. The track, which is available for complimentary advance registration, will showcase 21 real-world case studies that show how to make elephantine big data move like a cheetah.

Enterprise applications such as server virtualization, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and data warehouses each stand to benefit greatly from the predictable low latency and high IO performance of flash storage systems. Companies such as VMware, Citrix, Microsoft, Oracle, and SAP are investing considerable resources in delivering the productivity improvements made possible by combining their applications with shared flash memory infrastructures using FC, PCI Express, Infiniband, or iSCSI. Using a new breed of Enterprise SSD storage infrastructures, enterprises are achieving real-world performance gains, power reduction, rackspace reclamation, and other benefits by moving to flash-based infrastructure.

To attend the Enterprise Applications Track, visit https://www.expotracshows.com/flashMemory/2012/ and enter the priority code ITUSER for complimentary advance registration. Sessions targeting enterprise IT professionals will include:

  •     Big Data: Increase data access and transfer speeds vs. HDDs to make business analytics come alive.
  •     Cloud Storage: Cut costs, increase performance and deliver cloud storage to the enterprise.
  •     Database Acceleration: Accelerate database response by 30 to 150 times.
