Persistent Memory Summit 2020

PM Summit 2019

Registration is now open for the Persistent Memory Summit 2020.

The 2020 SNIA Persistent Memory Summit is again co-located with the SNIA Annual Members Symposium on January 23, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara.  

SNIA is pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for the 2020 Persistent Memory Summit and Symposium will be Andy Bechtolsheim, Chief Development Officer and Co-Founder of Arista Networks. Andy was a Founder and Chief System Architect at Sun Microsystems, where most recently he was responsible for industry standard server architecture.  

The Summit will also include sessions on emerging medias, interconnects, applications,  why companies are excited about working with PM, and how PM is changing the infrastructure for cloud, orchestration, micro services, and serverless environments.

Register NOW to ensure your complimentary space at the 2020 Persistent Memory Summit as space is limited.

The Persistent Memory Summit 2020 will also include an expanded Persistent Memory Hackathon. 

Based on feedback from hundreds of attendees at Persistent Memory Hackathons in San Diego, Santa Clara, and Xian China, you won't want to miss an expanded Hackathon that provides a better understanding of the various tiers and modes of PM and what existing methods are available to access them.  Learn more about SNIA's Persistent Memory Hackathon Program.
