Flash Memory Summit 2009
By ahl on Aug 11, 2009
At the Flash Memory Summit today, Sun's own Michael Cornwell delivered a keynote excoriating the overall direction of NAND flash and SSDs. In particular, he spoke of the "lithography death march" as NAND vendors push to deliver the most cost-efficient solution while making huge sacrifices in reliability and performance.
On Wednesday, August 12, I'll be giving two short talks as part of sessions on flash-enabled power savings and data center applications:
- 8:30 - 9:45 Power Saving Architectures Enabled by Smarter Software
- 3:15 - 4:30 The Need For Higher-Level Software for Flash
