Next Meetup

New trends in Storage industry, what to expect in 2019 from Industry Visionaries
ARE YOU WORKING WITH DATA? ARE YOU INTERESTED IN STORAGE TECHNOLOGY TRENDS AND WHAT IS NEXT? MICROCHIP, SKHYNIX, CISCO, KAZAN-NETWORKS AND MORE .... are you sure you want to miss the discussion? If any of these questions caught your attention, consider attending this event. Our panel consists of Distinguished Engineers who are influencing entire Storage Industry including Data Centers, The event is open to public and you are welcome to attend and speak with SPEAKERS who will be presenting at Flash Memory Summit. WHO WILL BE SPEAKING WITH YOU: PETER ONUFRYK, Sr. Director of Product Development at Microchip - Peter's contributions to the field of persistent memory are enduring. He was involved early in the technology and was part of the original NVM specification development team. He is currently a fellow in performance storage at Microchip. Peter also runs NVMe MI ( Management Interface) specification group under J Metz R&D Engineer, Advanced Storage Cisco Systems SPEAKER R&D Engineer for the Office of the CTO for Cisco, working in Advanced Storage and Storage Networking, but have a broad and eclectic background of both academic, corporate, and industry experience. Active speaker at Memory focused events, blog posts, Storage Newsletter and many more activities. J influences trends in storage technologies and promotes innovation. Tom Friend - Director of Industry Standards @ SK Hynix Solutions, Speaker at Flash Memory Summit Tom has been in a variety of engineering positions in the storage industry. His professional history began when IBM PCs were “Plug Compatibles”. He has done VLSI design and written operating system internals for Unix, Linux, Android and Windows. Having such a diverse experience mix makes him ideal in industry standards and so he manages the Industry Standards Team at Toshiba, SKHynix and many others Bryan Cowger - VP Sales and Marketing at Kazan Networks Stephen Bates - CTO of Eldeticom Stephen Bates is the CTO of Eideticom is a renown expert on topics like NVMe, RDMA, TCP/IP and NVM.

What we're about

This meetup is focused on understanding and democratizing latest trends in hardware designs which consecutively affect all layers of Software applications and in turn Cloud Computing and Analytics and "Big Data" solutions . The advent of NVM Express and NVM over Fabrics allows us to bring together and take to new heights computer technology and enable IoT. This group is focused on how NVM technology affects Digital Storage market and anything else in between related to NVM technology and storage world in hardware applications overall. If you are hardware designer, firmware designer, hardware hacker who want to come up with a most optimal way to bring software and hardware together this meetup will be for you.
