The SSSI began 2014 at the Storage Visions Conference. With a theme of Fast is Beautiful, the 2014 conference explored the latest storage technologies and methods to improve performance and efficiency, lower costs, and improve reliability.
SSSI showcased our latest white papers on solid state storage. See them here. SSSI members Fastor Systems and Greenliant Systems demonstrated innovative SSD solutions.
At Storage Visions, Paul Wassenberg, SNIA SSSI Chair, discussed findings of a new SSSI survey rating SSD features. An unexpected discovery was the need for education on issues such as data encryption, power management, and others. SSSI will work to provide more information on these issues to help users to make informed choices about SSDs. Join our dialog on related topics via a dedicated LinkedIn group .
SNIA’s continuing work in NVM programming and PCIe SSD created a buzz. Jim Pappas of Intel moderated a panel on Bringing Non-Volatile Memory To Tomorrow’s Storage Architectures; Adrian Proctor of Viking Technology gave an NVDIMM overview on a Storage Developments Drive New Storage Options panel; and Eden Kim of Calypso Systems spoke on PCIe SSD activities on a Future Content – What’s Ahead for Content Storage panel. Explore these areas further at our upcoming SNIA Annual Members Meeting, January 27-30, 2014 at the Sainte Claire Hotel in San Jose CA where a Storage Industry Summit-Focus on NVM will take place Tuesday January 28. Registration is complimentary.
