Gigaom Research webinar: innovations in Flash Storage and their impact on analytics


To automate decision making and capture competitive insight, enterprises require massive computing resources that store and mine ever-growing amounts of data. With big data, high-performance storage is every bit as critical as processing power. Flash-based storage provides significant I/O performance, reliability and efficiency advantages over disk that make it an ideal tool for big data analytics.

Implemented properly, flash-based storage can be a critical component of the high-performance systems necessary to meet real-time demands and detailed analytics requests.

In this webinar, the panel will address these topics:

?      What are the benefits of flash-based storage devices in accelerating analytics?

?      How can these devices enhance performance in business analytics using tools such as Hadoop and NoSQL databases?

?      What are the various kinds of flash storage for the enterprise market?

  • SAS/SATA SSDs, PCIe SSDs and flash on DIMMs

?      Is it realistic to use flash in multiple tiers of the data center?

?      What are future trends in accelerating applications for the enterprise?

 Speakers include:

  • Barb Goldworm, president and chief analyst, FOCUS
  • Mike Karp, VP and principal analyst, Ptak, Noel & Associates
  • Ashar Baig, Founder, Analyst Connection
  • Steve Fingerhut, VP of Enterprise Storage, SanDisk
