The 2020 SNIA Persistent Memory Summit is coming January 23rd in Santa Clara, CA. There will be a co-located PM Hackathon on January 22nd. For those who have already attended the PM Summit, you will find significant changes in the makeup of the agenda. For those who have never attended, the new agenda might be an opportunity to learn more on development options and experiences for persistent memory.
The focus of the summit this year will be on tool and application development for systems with persistent memory. While there is significant momentum for applications, some companies and individuals are still hesitant. The recent PIRL conference in San Diego focused on corporate and academic development efforts, specifically it looked at the experience of developing for persistent memory. A great example of the presentations there is this one by Shachar Sharon from NetApp, a SNIA member.
The Persistent Memory Summit will have several talks similar to this presentation, focusing on the experience of delivering applications for persistent memory. Obviously this will be beneficial for developers and software management, but it will also serve the needs for hardware attendees by highlighting the process that applications will follow to utilize new hardware. Likewise, companies interested in exploring persistent memory in IT infrastructure can benefit from understanding the implementations available.
The Summit will also feature some of the entrants from the SNIA NVDIMM Programming Challenge that is currently ongoing. If you haven’t registered to participate, opportunities are still available.
Registration for the Persistent Memory summit is complementary, so reserve your seat soon.
