Flash memory is changing the world! It is a key enabling technology for every enterprise application, from transaction processing to archiving. Flash memory powers mobile devices and enables the cloud storage systems that support them. It is also driving new storage system architectures and interface technologies.

At the 2014 Flash Memory Summit, you can find out how to use solid-state storage in a variety of applications. You will learn about technological advances such as 3D flash, hear case studies, discover new features and capabilities, participate in hands on activities, and understand the current state of the industry. End users in particular will find out how to best use flash memory and SSDs to improve their organization’s bottom line.

The 2014 FMS will be bigger than ever. Our program covers every aspect of flash memory including end user experiences and best practices, enterprise storage applications, client applications, storage architectures, controllers, standards, security, user applications, virtualization, testing, embedded systems, PCIe storage, data recovery, and data management.

We will have pre-conference seminars, tutorials, keynotes from major industry leaders, and plenary sessions from leaders in technology, enterprise applications, mobile applications, and embedded applications.

Our exhibit area will feature the leaders in flash memory, digital storage, and related products as well as important industry groups and universities. Startups and established companies will be meeting with potential customers and partners at their booths. The Exhibit Theatre will feature talks about the latest products. The Flash Memory Awards will honor outstanding companies and products, and the IT Brand Pulse Innovation Awards will recognize companies rated highest in extensive surveys of leading end users.

Regardless of how you are involved in the storage industry, the 2014 Flash Memory Summit has something for everyone. This is one storage event you won’t want to miss.
