Storage Visions 2018: Defining State-of-the-Art

by Larry Jordan

IDC estimates that by 2025, we will generate more that 163 zettabytes of data each year! (That’s 163 BILLION Terabytes…!) Where are we gonna put all this stuff? There is so MUCH data coming that many view it as a “data apocalypse;” a rising tide that will wash over all of us.

Even worse, how will we find what we need once we have it stored… someplace?

Answering those questions is what this year’s Storage Visions conference is all about. Presented by Coughlin & Associates, this annual event is an in-depth look at the leading edge of storage technology, with a special focus on the demands of networked databases and media. Databases require very fast response times, while media requires very high bandwidth – the two demand very different performance and technology from storage systems.

This two-day conference will be held Oct. 23-23, 2018, at the Hyatt Hotel in Santa Clara, CA. It features sessions on:

  • Memory/storage-centric computing
  • Emerging memory technologies battle the data horde
  • Analyst Perspectives: How will we manage the data apocalypse?
  • Flash, HDDs and Tape slay data challenges
  • Storage for high resolution content capture and production
  • Media and Entertainment Storage End Users on Surviving the Data Apocalypse
  • Software Visions for High Performance Applications
  • Big Data and Small Pipes: How will we get data where it needs to be?
  • Storing data for the long term
  • Can clouds and AI deal with burgeoning data growth?
  • Business leaders address the challenges and promise of ubiquitous data

This conference is a great opportunity to talk with the companies, analysts and developers who are designing the storage today that we will use to support our business tomorrow.

I’ve attended many of these conferences over the years and have always been impressed with the technical excellence of the speakers and sessions. While these don’t require an engineering degree, a love of technology and an inquiring mind will help you make the most of your time.
