Demartek to Present at the Flash Memory Summit in August 2010

11 June 2010

, President of Demartek, will speak at the Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, August 18, 2010. Dennis will present Storage Best Practices for Microsoft Server Applications during the SSDs and Operating Systems session from 4:30 to 5:30 pm.

Storage is critical for the primary Microsoft server-based applications, including Exchange Server, SQL Server and SharePoint Server. In this session, we will explore some of the basics of storage devices and interfaces, and the reasons for selecting each one. We will discuss a few of the best storage practices for each of the Microsoft applications, then we will show some performance data from the Demartek lab comparing the same Microsoft server application with Solid State Drives (SSD), Fibre-Channel and SAS disk drives and SATA disk drives.

Dennis Martin published an article making the case for solid-state storage in June 2010. Demartek continues to test SSD technology during calendar year 2010. View all the SSD resources at the Demartek SSD Zone.
