Seagate will be at the annual Flash Memory Summit at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA next week participating in numerous sessions and showcasing its solid state and solid state hybrid solutions. The conference and exhibit, which runs from August 9th through the 11th, brings together vendors, industry analysts, press, IT pros and developers focused on all things solid state. Industry keynotes will be given from a range of companies including Intel, Micron, Oracle, SanDisk, and STEC.
Among the many conference tutorial sessions and panels Seagate will be participating in, topics will range from flash security, MLC endurance, and interface standards in the enterprise, to exploring innovative pairings of flash and HDDs in PCs. In addition, John Moon, Seagate senior director of Emerging System Integration will give a keynote on the final day of the summit titled, “SSD vs HDD vs. SSH; it’s not who will win, but who should win.”
Seagate’s booth exhibit will also feature numerous demos focused on solid state hybrid technology. From a system that includes a motherboard that is optimized for hybrid drives, to a thin laptop that compares the speed between SSDs and hybrids, to an HDD vs. hybrid demo that looks at instant-on capability, it’s all about showcasing performance with Seagate’s latest technology. Information about Seagate’s Pulsar family of SSDs that have recently entered the distribution channel will also be available at the booth.
