Who: Storage
What: Symposium
When: Past
Where: Silicon Valley

Data storage is changing, with solid-state technologies presenting a unique challenge to spinning disks. But not all solid-state storage is equivalent, and new architectures will be needed to apply solid-state enterprise use cases.

On April 25, 2012 the industry will come together at the Solid State Storage Symposium! This all-day in-person event features panelists from key enterprise storage companies and will be moderated by independent experts, including Stephen Foskett, Robin Harris, Chris Evans, Howard Marks, and Nigel Poulton.
The Solid State Storage Symposium will be held in San Jose immediately preceding Storage Field Day. It will be streamed live from the Tech Field Day site and will include many of the Field Day delegates.

Free tickets are available now if you would like to attend in person!

When: Wednesday, April 25, 2012, from 9 AM to 4 PM

Where: DoubleTree Hotel, San Jose, CA

Who: Anyone with an interest in solid-state storage (end users, press/analysts, and vendor employees welcome!)

How: Claim your free ticket at our EventBrite page!
