On the (Windy) Road to SNW 2012: Flash and SSD Discussions Await

Everyone knows that everything is bigger in Texas—that includes tornados and storage conferences! Pure Storage will be doing things up in a big way at SNW Dallas this week, with three scheduled appearances at the event.

First, because of a recent spate of tornados that grounded the plane of our CEO Scott Dietzen and has completely closed the DFW airport, I’ll be joining the panel discussion hosted by Arun Taneja, founder and consulting analyst of Taneja Group, titled: “Do I really need a 100% Flash Array? Why?” The panel, which promises to be a lively discussion and features executives from several flash storage vendors, takes place on Wednesday, April 4 and will explore the role of flash in enterprise storage.

 

I will also be presenting two sessions at the show: a SNIA tutorial “Leveraging Flash Memory in Enterprise Storage” on April 4th, and an Industry Perspective session: “The Realities of Solid State Storage” on April 5th.

 

We’re looking forward to examining the value props of flash storage and talking about how new innovation and fresh approaches are eliminating barriers to enterprise adoption. The flash discussions that we are a part of at this Spring’s SNW are below. We hope to see ya’ll there!
