Demartek Presents Integrating Solid State Storage at the Storage Decisions Conferences in June 2009
14 April 2009
Dennis Martin, President of Demartek, will present Integrating Solid State Storage at the Storage Decisions Conferences in Chicago and Toronto in June 2009. The Chicago conference will be held June 1-2, 2009. The Toronto conference will be held June 16, 2009.
In this session, we’ll look at the advantages and disadvantages of integrating solid state drives in traditional storage systems. The presentation will also describe new techniques that solid state vendors are using to make this integration more effective. Topics will include:
- Performance vs. cost
- Power & cooling
- DRAM vs. Flash
- Plug-in flash (using standard hard disk interfaces)
- How vendors are adding flash to their systems (and built-from-the-ground-up memory-based storage systems, e.g., Texas Memory Systems
- New architectures/integrations (e.g., Fusion-IO, Sun & Micron) & specialized controllers
In addition, Dennis will include some of the results from his solid state storage testing in the Demartek lab.
