Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't know of many trade shows/conferences that focus primarily on memory. Memory often seems like a part of the design that seems to me to be often overlooked. Kind of like, why yes, I'll buy that new car, and yes, I'll put gas in it. What kind of gas? What does it matter...
Lately, it seems that memory is getting a bit of attention in the bigger electronics design space. Is there a new 'killer' technology on the horizon? How much more memory can we fit into a tiny footprint? How can we use SSDs to satisfy enterprise storage applications? Are hybrid HDD-SSD storage solutions the way to go? What effect will cloud computing have on memory?
Well, this week may are tackling these very subjects at Computerworld's Storage Network World (SNW). Hands-on lab topics include cloud storage, SSDs, enterprise memory, unified storage, and storage implications for server virtualization. If you are in the neighborhood, (Hyatt Regency Silicon Valley Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA), consider stopping in.
