Peter K. Hazen, Marketing Director, Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) Solutions Group at Intel will talk about Enabling Transformational Change in Clients and Datacenters with Solid State Drives. Following is the abstract of his talk: The explosion of mobile computing has created an insatiable demand for instant, affordable access to the world's information. Solid State Drive solutions are fueling the innovation and proliferation of mobile computing by enabling thinner, lighter and more responsive clients with extended battery life. Service providers and enterprises are responding to the increased demand for data by expanding and transforming their datacenters worldwide. The adoption of SSD solutions in datacenters is enabling transformational change through significant improvements in performance, power and cost. SSD solutions enable breakthrough advances in Big Data, Cloud Computing and High Performance Computing as well as a broad range of Enterprise IT applications. A new generation of SSDs are coming to market with new form factors, lower power, enterprise Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) features, higher and more consistent performance as well as improved Quality-of-Service (QoS) which are accelerating innovation in client and datacenter solutions.
