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.
