    Exceptional Agenda on Tap for 2018 Persistent Memory Summit

    Persistent Memory (PM) has made tremendous strides since SNIA’s first Non-Volatile Memory Summit in 2013. With a name change to Persistent Memory Summit in 2017, that event continued the buzz with 350+ attendees and a focus turning to applications.

    Now in 2018, the agenda for the SNIA Persistent Memory Summit, upcoming January 24 at the Westin San Jose, reflects the integration of PM in a number of organizations. Zvonimir Bandic of Western Digital Corporation will kick off the day exploring the “exabyte challenge” of persistent memory centric architectures and memory fabrics. The fairly new frontier of Persistent Memory over Fabrics (PMoF) returns as a topic with speakers from Open Fabrics Alliance, Cray, Eideticom, and Mellanox. Performance is always evolving, and Micron Technologies, Enmotus, and Calypso Systems will give their perspectives. And the day will dive into futures of media with speakers from Nantero and Spin Transfer Technologies, and a panel led by HPE will review new interfaces and how they relate to PM.

    A highlight of the Summit will be a panel on applications and cloud with a PM twist, featuring Dreamworks, GridGain, Oracle, and Aerospike. Leading up to that will be a commentary on file systems and persistent memory from NetApp and Microsoft, and a discussion of virtualization of persistent memory presented by VMware.   SNIA found a number of users interested in persistent memory support in both Windows Server 2016 and Linux at recent events, so Microsoft and Linux will update us on the latest developments. Finally, you will want to know where the analysts weigh in on PM, so Coughlin Associates, Evaluator Group, Objective Analysis, and WebFeet Research will add their commentary.

    During breaks and the complimentary lunch, you can tour Persistent Memory demos from the SNIA NVDIMM SIG, SMART Modular, AgigA Tech, Netlist, and Viking Technology.
