Only a system level approach to flash memory management can meet increasing storage performance demands while bringing the price of all solid-state storage arrays to a level that is equal to high performance HDDs. Innovations are necessary to make 19/20 nm and below MLC flash memory usable in mainstream enterprise cloud storage. In addition, reducing high costs that keep flash memory from serving as primary storage (as compared to caches or tiers) is very important. This presentation will highlight flash technology trends and offer system level solutions that have advanced flash memory in the enterprise storage market.
Dr. Danilak has over 20 years of experience and has filed more than 80 patents while architecting and designing state-of-the-art processing engines. Prior to Skyera Inc., Radoslav was founder and CTO of SandForce Inc., the first and currently only company that enabled MLC flash memory in enterprise storage. Radoslav was a senior chipset and graphics processor architect at NVIDIA, and prior to that, held senior engineering and architect positions at Nishan Systems, Toshiba, Gizmo Technologies and DanSoft. Radoslav earned his Ph.D in Computer Science and his MS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Technical University of Kosice, Slovak Republic.
