Podcast: Flash Memory Summit

GreybeardsThose of you who enjoy listening to podcasts may want to hear Ray Lucchesi (Silverton Consulting) and Howard Marks (Deep Storage) interview The SSD Guy for their series “Greybeards on Storage.”

This interview is their 70th episode covering the world of storage.  These guys do a fantastic job of probing this industry with great enthusiasm and insight.

This episode is a 42-minute compendium of the sights and goings-on at last August’s Flash Memory Summit along with a number of side trips into the world of SSDs and memory chips.  It’s not strictly structured, and not strictly serious, but just three industry insiders having a lot of fun sharing their observations.

Some of the broad range of subjects that we discussed during the episode were:

  • Flash pricing: How it’s falling and how far it will fall
  • YMTC – A new flash supplier in China
  • Computational storage (also known as in-situ processing, where the SSD does some of the server’s work!)
  • Emerging memory technologies (MRAM, ReRAM, FRAM, etc.)

Many thanks to Howard and Ray for inviting me into their compelling series of podcasts!
