One thing abundantly clear to every one is the explosion of data in the last five years. If projects based on IoT forge ahead and we end up living with 50billion nodes networked by 2050, a storage environment where round trip latencies for accessing and fetching data have to scale exponentially and that is possible only with solid state drives. The question is how can be make the nonvolatile storage faster and more reliable, over and above what is afforded by redundancy today. MP Divakar

At some point we'll have to stop hoarding data and do some old-fashioned spring cleaning. I see a horrible practice of multiple instances of the exact same files here on the corporate servers basically because people are in herently lazy and nobody forces the issue. We could easily contain this data explosion if people could just discipline themselves to keep only what they need. I dare say, 98% of the data is probably worthless (repeated, out-of-date, superseded, obselete, etc.).

Sounds like an opportunity to make some money to me :-) (i.e., finding duplicate data and flagging it)

Valid point! Most storage area networks and storage services will have 4X to 6X redundancy and my point above is this can get way out of hand with hardware limitations in the coming days. Solidstate drives have to improve their reliability drastically from where they are now. MP Divakar

I love the fact that I have 2 TB of at home storage! I also really like having alternate remote site backups! It is a wonderful time to be on a machine with so many options for storage/performance and capacity..

Not sure that few Tbs of storage I have helps me. I am at the point where I am not sure where everything is located. And don't have the time to sort thru 100 Gbs+ storage in family pictures not to mention other stuff. Help is needed. Start-up opps?

Computing could become big data oriented if it were all based on big look up tables. But accessing memory to carry this out would have to be much more parallel than existing multi-core threads to be appreciably fast. Probably on the order of 1000x at least.

Of course the author will plug the advantages of flash memory, since his company uses it. But the Invisible Hand stills plays a role. We are in the early stages of shifting to SSDs in PCs and the like, because old fashioned hard drives are simply a lot *cheaper*. I don't see the industry as a whole shifting till costs drop by an order of magnitude. It's the reason why an awful lot of backup is to tape: the cheapest cost per megabyte of storage.

His company also uses disk drives and tape cartridges, and probably has a higher profit margin on them, so I think his saying solid state is about to take over carries real information.

Are we getting lost in this huge sea of humongous data? Is storage capability of our network start to become so much larger than ability of our brain to digest that data?? The tipping point might be that soon nobody will know what they have stored and where.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
