$1,895– Solid-State Drives (SSDs) and flash caches continue to change the data storage industry. Embedded flash in mobile devices has changed the way we live. Persistent memory computing presents new opportunities to continue to drive innovation using the latest non-volatile memory (NVM) technologies. Treating these storage devices as “black boxes” limits the performance and reliability that can be obtained from them. It also limits the breadth and speed of innovation they can support in new applications. This class clearly explains the inner workings of these very important technologies.
Flash has undergone more than 30 years of development, but the speed of its recent development has brought it to the forefront of modern storage infrastructures. The unprecedented density of storage supported by 3D NAND combined with multi-bit per cell technology continue to make flash the storage technology of choice for new product categories.
This two-day seminar from KnowledgeTek provides engineers, managers, executives, and technicians a clear understanding of the concepts, possibilities, and drawbacks of flash-based storage in general, and SSDs in particular. It is presented for those with a technical background, but a deep knowledge of semiconductors or data storage devices are not prerequisites. You will learn how SSDs work; how 3D NAND flash works; how flash is changing the storage industry; skepticism for claims of reliability, low-cost, and low-power; limitations for flash’s future; and the pros and cons of emerging technologies poised to replace it.
