SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Justin Sykes from Micron Technology will be a keynote speaker at the 2012 Storage Visions. Justin's talk will explore "Whether the Cloud Will Eliminate Client Storage." The keynote will highlight the conference theme of "Heavy Storage for Thin Clients." The Eleventh Annual Storage Visions Conference will be held at the Riviera Hotel Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 8 & 9, 2012 by the Entertainment Storage Alliance.
"Storage is entering an exciting period—the growing popularity of cloud services and ultra-light computing are driving bold new designs and technologies," said Justin Sykes, general manager for Micron's client SSD division. "We're looking forward to engaging with storage industry leaders, influencers, and innovators again at this year's Storage Visions conference. It's a great opportunity to share our thoughts on how new developments in flash technology will drive these changes."
Justin's talk will discuss how some analysts have suggested that the exponential growth of cloud applications will fundamentally shift where storage is needed. Are they right? How will this impact storage in tablets, laptops, phones, and other devices? In his talk you will learn how SSDs are evolving to meet data demands on both sides of the cloud spectrum.
Tom Coughlin, chair of the 2012 Storage Visions Conference stated that "We are glad to have this timely talk by Micron, one of the major suppliers of flash memory, discussing the implications of the trend towards mobile computing and thin clients." He continued, "Cloud storage will have dramatic implications for tomorrow's storage hierarchy and the growth of digital storage in local and remote locations to serve consumer and business needs. Truly heavy digital storage is needed to support demanding applications on mobile devices and we look forward to discovering where this storage will be located and how it will be used."
