    SNIA Highlights Persistent Memory and Scalable Storage Management at Storage Field Day 13

    Following enthusiastic response to their first Storage Field Day in March, SNIA is returning to the lineup on June 15, 2017. Storage Field Day events bring together innovative IT organizations and independent thought leaders to share information and opinions in a presentation format that is lively – and live streamed.

    SNIA will present Storage Field Day #13 at their Technology Center in Colorado Springs, CO where organizer Stephen Foskett and a dozen delegates will tour the facility and interact with SNIA members on persistent memory and scalable storage management – two hot storage topics that consumers and the industry want to learn more about.

    Specifically, SNIA experts will discuss:

    • How the convergence of storage and memory will revolutionize computer architecture
    • How SNIA is accelerating a system for unified, scalable server and storage management.

    In SNIA’s 90 minute session, beginning at 12 pm Pacific/1:00 pm Mountain/ 3:00 pm Eastern, Rob Peglar, senior vice president and CTO at Symbolic IO and a SNIA Board member, will first discuss how SNIA, its technical work, and its outreach initiatives are key contributors to an ecosystem driving system memory and storage into a single, unified “persistent memory” entity. Rob will describe activities of the SNIA Non Volatile Memory Technical Work Group, which is delivering specifications describing the behavior of a common set of software interfaces that provide access to non volatile memory, and the NVDIMM Special Interest Group, which accelerates awareness and adoption of Non Volatile Dual In-line (NVDIMM) memory modules in the marketplace.

    Richelle Ahlvers, principal storage management architect at Broadcom Limited and co-chair of the SNIA Scalable Storage Management Technical Work Group, will discuss how the customer-centric SNIA SwordfishTM interface extends the DMTF’s Redfish specification (API) to handle the management of storage equipment and storage services found in modern data centers. By extending the DMTF Redfish API protocol and schema, SNIA Swordfish helps provide a unified approach for the management of storage equipment, data services, and servers in converged, hyper-converged, hyperscale and cloud infrastructure environments. The same easy-to-use RESTful interface is used, along with JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) and the Open Data Protocol (OData), making it easier for IT administrators to integrate scalable solutions into their data centers.

        Dustin, thank you for your comment on the post. SNIA has been involved in persistent memory work for over 5 years, and is proud to have helped advance the industry from the early stages of PM as the future of computing in 2012 to today’s state of delivering on the convergence of storage and memory, with summits each year in January, and a full day track at the upcoming Flash Memory Summit August 7-10 in Santa Clara CA.
