SNIA Persistent Memory + Computational Storage Summit

 

 

Thank you for attending the Summit! 

Videos from the 2021 event are now available on our PM+CS Summit 2021 Playlist.  Videos and presentation PDFs are now available in the SNIA Educational Library, and you can check out each one linked to its agenda session below.

SNIA’s 9th annual Summit was a success with a new name and an expanded focus - Persistent Memory + Computational Storage - from the data center to the edge.  The Summit moved to a two-day virtual platform April 21-22, 2021. 

But even in a unique 2021, much remained the same. Attendees saw leading technology experts discussing real world applications and use cases, providing insights on technology trends and futures, and networking  in "live via the internet" panels and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions. We have also extended beyond the Summit end the  Persistent Memory Workshop and Hackathon with access to new cloud-based PM systems for more learning opportunities. 

 

We had great feedback on our video tutorials on computational storage and persistent memory.  In only 30 minutes you can get the basics to continue conversations with colleagues.
