Everything you need to know to design successful storage systems will be at the Flash Memory Summit (FMS) this year. FMS is rated the leading independent storage show worldwide ! You'll hear from industry experts about the latest NVMe (and NVMe over fabrics) devices, 3D NAND flash (and 3D XPoint), emerging nonvolatile memory technologies (including applications for the latest MRAM developments), persistent memory (and NVDIMM), controllers, flash storage networking, and the software that brings them together.

You'll learn new ways to meet the challenges of big data, real-time analysis, virtual and augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine learning, hyperscale infrastructure, and cloud computing. You'll get real insight from major keynoters and hot newcomers.

You will also benefit from:

  • Annual updates by top experts on flash technology, enterprise storage, flash controllers, and new nonvolatile memory technologies
  • Descriptions of the latest happenings in controllers, including NVMe (and NVMe-oF), ECC, machine learning, and new approaches such as I/O determinism and dual porting
  • Invited talks by leading technologists and market researchers on many current subjects, plus reference designs and an update on nonvolatile memory research at Stanford
  • The ever-popular beer and pizza session ("Chat with the Experts"), where you can ask questions of leading technologists, executives, and analysts in an informal, one-on-one setting

FMS will also have an upgraded exhibit hall, including a big demonstration area and over 100 exhibitors. Experience the best professional networking opportunity in the storage industry. So please join us, and thousands of your colleagues, for the most worthwhile and valuable FMS ever!
