Keynotes at the 2016 Storage Visions Conference


Conference Registration Deadline is December 25, 2015


San Jose, CA—December 3, 2015—The Storage Visions Conference, January 4 & 5, 2016 at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas is pleased to announce Keynote talks by Micron and Intel. The conference theme is:  Storage for the Next 5,000 Years (inspired by the Egyptian motifs at the Luxor Hotel). The conference agenda can be seen at: 


The industry is in the midst of a storage revolution that is transforming IT and major storage trends are having a direct effect on the world population.  Join Bev Crair, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Storage Group, for insights into how Intel is offering leading technologies and solutions to transform both cloud and enterprise storage.


Rob Peglar, Vice President of Advanced Storage at Micron Technology, Inc. will give a keynote titled:  Always Where you Need it:  The End of Traditional Device Memory and Storage. This talk will discuss the architectural aspects of using non-volatile memory to support both existing applications and to enable new applications.  The best way to reduce bottlenecks in processing is to re-architect the relationship between persistent data and processors, and thereby enable workloads and applications, which were previously out-of-scope in terms of the time and expense required. 


The Storage Visions Conference is the premier event bringing together digital storage oriented people from diverse industries including consumer electronics, general business, health care, high performance computing and media and entertainment. Join CEO's, industry leaders, manufacturers, and end users at Storage Visions 2016 in a relaxed and informative environment where attendees can network with world changers and industry titans.   Attendees will discover the trends and meet the trendsetters that will drive a new wave of business tied to higher resolution content, big data, security requirements, consumer electronics, digital distribution, new storage architectures and applications as well as new digital storage technologies.
