Do you attend storage conferences? These conferences can keep the attendee abreast of storage trends and where the industry is going. Also, they can be great networking opportunities. Here are a couple that I am considering:
* 31st International Conference on Massive Storage Systems and Technology (MSST 2015) — http://storageconference.us. This conference will be held from May 30 – June 5, 2015 at Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, CA. The conference title this year is “Media Wars: Disk versus FLASH in the Struggle for Capacity and Performance”. By the title, it looks like this event is going to be pretty awesome!
* The Flash Memory Summit — http://www.flashmemorysummit.com. This conference takes place on August 11 – 13, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. The website summarizes the conference thusly: “The Flash Memory Summit is the only place where you will hear the people making these products happen! Network with companies and people that will create the next generation of hardware and software at the Flash Memory Summit.”
Are you considering either of these or any others? Let me know.
