Permabit CTO Joins Two Panels to Discuss Data Optimization at Flash Memory Summit

CAMBRIDGE, Mass – August 14, 2012 – Permabit Technology Corporation, the recognized leader in data efficiency technology, today announced that its CTO Jered Floyd is a featured speaker on the Green Flash panel (August 21 at 3:30 p.m.) and the Top Ten Things You Need to Know about Flash Memory Today panel (August 23 at 4:40 p.m.) at the Flash Memory Summit in the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif.

The Green Flash panel is designed to inform attendees about how much they can expect to save by implementing technologies designed to further reduce power consumption.  The Top Ten panel is a conference wrap-up session that is well-suited to end users, including data center, network, IT, storage, and computer managers, directors and staff members who are interested in building applications or tools that use or support flash memory.  Floyd will highlight software as the key differentiator in the flash market. In particular, he will discuss how data optimization software massively improves performance and efficiency of data creation, transmission and storage to provide enterprises with benefits of increased storage efficiency and improved performance and reliability.

“When done right, deduplication for flash can provide a cascading benefit of savings across the enterprise to meet IO performance requirements and dramatically improve scalability, reliability and cost per gigabyte,” said Floyd.  “I am pleased that I have not one, but two, opportunities to share with attendees how even the highest-end flash arrays can cost less than traditional SAS-based products after dedupe.  Anyone looking to be disruptive in the market today needs to attend these panels to learn how to deliver higher IO, better utilization and improved density with lower power and cost than traditional methods.”

Flash Memory Summit showcases the mainstream applications, key technologies and leading vendors that are driving the multi-billion dollar market for Flash memory and enterprise SSDs. Now in its seventh year, Flash Memory Summit is the only Silicon Valley event featuring the trends, innovations and influencers driving the adoption of flash memory in demanding enterprise storage applications, as well as in smartphones, tablets and embedded systems.
