Flash Memory Summit to Feature All-Encompassing NVMe Sessions

Learn about the latest management specs, flash storage over Ethernet
(TCP), NVMe for persistent memory, special methods for hyperscalers, and
current markets

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Flash Memory Summit (FMS) today announced its strong lineup of NVMe
sessions for this year’s conference, to be held August 6-8 at the Santa
Clara Convention Center. The new NVMe interface standard for flash and
persistent memory is now being rapidly adopted for use in computers,
storage systems, clusters, and high-performance systems. The sessions
cover all aspects of NVMe with special highlights on NVMe-over-Fabrics,
the newly adopted NVMe over Ethernet (TCP), and updates to the NVMe-MI
management interface.

Attendees can catch up on the latest features in NVMe such as persistent
memory (PM) regions, zoned namespaces, and endurance group management.
These additions enable storage designers to develop and integrate new
technologies such as persistent memory and open-channel SSDs. The
emphasis on NVMe mirrors the current market in which NVMe SSDs now cost
the same as SATA devices while offering many times the performance.
Leading industry analysts now project that virtually all new SSDs will
use NVMe within the next few years.

“NVMe is the most popular interface for new SSDs,” said Chuck Sobey,
Conference Chairperson for Flash Memory Summit. “To differentiate their
products, storage designers are optimizing their systems to take full
advantage of the latest features of NVMe, NVMe-oF, and NVMe/TCP.”

NVMe coverage launches with an introductory pre-conference NVMe/TCP
seminar on August 5 plus three full days of sessions on the subject. In
addition, the NVM Express standards organization is sponsoring an
additional two-day track. FMS also covers emerging subjects such as
persistent memory, AI/ML applications, new non-volatile memory
technologies, and computational storage.

Now in its 14th year, Flash Memory Summit features the latest
technology trends, the industry’s most innovative products, and the
broadest coverage of this rapidly expanding market. In 2018, FMS drew
more than 6,500 registrants and more than 120 exhibitors. The 2019 event
already projects significant growth. The conference also features
keynotes from major vendors and customers, marketing and market research
tracks, and invited talks from key experts. Popular continuing features
include an expert table session, performance testing, customer survey
results, CTO and CMO panels, annual updates, industry trends and
overviews, and a VC Forum.
