    Solid State on Stage

    The media buzz continues on solid state storage, now a prominent feature of storage, virtualization, and developer discussions.  Reaching the ears of business is SSSI’s Marketing Committee Chair Tom Coughlin, who has a blog on Forbes.  Latest posts discuss  a new age of digital storage interfaces, many based on the PCIe computer interface, that can take advantage of the higher data rates that NAND flash-based digital storage can provide.

    Solid State Storage was featured at recent storage conferences including SNIA’s Storage Developer Conference and SNW (Storage Networking World) US and Europe.  At SNW US, Lucas Mearian of Computerworld and Jim Pappas, SNIA Board and SSSI member, discussed a sea change in the non-volatile memory (NVM) market over the next five years, with more dense and reliable technologies challenging dominant NAND flash memory now used in solid-state drives (SSD) and embedded in mobile products.  Mearian’s article is here.

    At Powering the Cloud – SNW Europe, Randy Kerns of the SNIA member Evaluator Group led a spotlight session on Solid State Storage and Its Impact on the Environment, with presentations from SSSI members Kim Gardner of STEC and David Dale of NetApp.

    SNIA and the Solid State Storage Initiative urge you to get involved in fast-developing SSSI activities in PCIe and NVM.  Visit our website at http://www.snia.org/forums/sssi or email asksssi@snia.org
