TITLE: Memory Channel Storage: Putting Flash Where it Belongs

ABSTRACT:
As applications and application deployment strategies evolve at breakneck speed, legacy storage infrastructures are rapidly becoming inadequate. The ability to access large amounts of data quickly and consistently is a critical requirement to support the next generation of software services and solutions. In this talk, we will introduce the innovative Memory Channel Storage architecture and explain how it removes legacy storage bottlenecks, thereby clearing the way for unprecedented levels of application performance.
