NVMe Developer Days

December 5–6, 2018
San Diego, California



NVMe Developer Days - Summary

Sessions focus on the“How-tos” of NVMe. Designers, systems, and data centers can now take full advantage of the inherent performance of flash memory:

  • Run applications faster.
  • Reduce latency (for Big Data).
  • Scale better.
  • Build virtualized storage.

Network and interact 1-on-1 with the leading experts at these sessions (for example):

  • “60 NVMe Tips and Tricks”
  • “Chat with NVMe Experts” (over Beer & Pizza)
  • “NVMe Discussion Sessions”: Topics on Networking, Software, and Hardware

Who Should Attend

The “How-to” focus is geared for engineers, technical managers, and programmers designing NVMe products. Session content also supports IT storage and infrastructure engineers who are launching an NVMe project or want to improve their existing storage.

The Business Side of NVMe

Recent market research points to a huge total market of $4.8 billion by 2025. NVMe’s approach to nonvolatile memory has already begun to attract wide interest in high-performance computing, mobile applications, embedded applications, industrial applications, mil-aero applications, automotive applications, and other areas.

“Embedded STT-NVMe has promising opportunities in replacing embedded flash in MCUs and SoCs for automotive, IoT, consumer, and mobile. Complementing first and then replacing embedded DRAM and SRAM is also a huge opportunity for NVMe that would add persistence capabilities to processors.”
