In-memory computing hot topics & emerging trends: Panel discussion in Menlo Park


You are invited to attend our June 13 gathering at BootUp in Menlo Park for an insightful panel discussion on in-memory computing hot topics and emerging trends (and more). The panel of experts will also field your questions, suggestions and ideas.

While the cost of memory is still slightly higher than disk-based storage, an in-memory computing solution offers a tremendous increase in performance and much greater flexibility to incorporate new capabilities in the future. The benefit? A far superior return on investment (ROI), especially when competitive advantage and customer experience is taken into account.

As always, this is a free event thanks to the generous sponsorship of GridGain Systems. RSVP required because space will be limited. We’ll be serving up a variety of hot and cold Mediterranean dishes (including hand-carved gyros) prepared by Bootup's on-site executive chef. Wine, beer and soft drinks will also be served. This time we'll be meeting in the main event area in front of the bar (we'll also have access to outside patio area).

We'll also be raffling off some cool gadgets as well as passes to the In-Memory Computing Summit North America, Oct. 2-3 in Burlingame.

And now let’s meet our panel!
