CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jered Floyd, CTO of Permabit Technology Corporation, the recognized leader in data efficiency technology, will serve as a forum instructor and table leader for two events at the Flash Memory Summit, August 13 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California.


Floyd will be the speaker for "Optimization Techniques Change the Competitive Landscape" as part of Forum C-12: SSD Technology beginning at 3:15 p.m. PDT, where he will highlight how flash's low-latency reads can be used to maximize data optimization performance, providing solid state storage systems with greater reliability, exceptional scalability, and far lower cost than previously thought possible.

He also will serve as the "Green Flash" table leader during the "Beer, Pizza and Chat with Experts" session from 7:00-8:30 p.m. This session will give attendees a chance to discuss how to increase efficiency to reduce storage overhead requirements and substantially reduce effective storage costs. Emphasis will be on frequently asked questions, best practices, hints and warnings, major issues, and key products and standards. Beer, wine, soft drinks and pizza will be served to promote informality and encourage networking.

"There are a lot of exciting opportunities to incorporate data optimization within flash environments to improve performance, maximize cost efficiency and minimize the footprint and operational costs associated with the technology," said Floyd. "I look forward to sharing the success that Permabit has found in its approach to data optimization with attendees of the Flash Memory Summit."

The Flash Memory Summit is the only conference dedicated entirely to flash memory and its applications. The Summit features half-day tutorials, workshops, paper and panel sessions, keynotes, roundtables, special sessions, and exhibits. Subjects include hardware, software, design methods, consumer applications, embedded applications, computer and communications applications, alternative technologies, programming methods, testing, standards, and market research.  Additional information about the event is available at
