What: Presentation by Greg Huff, LSI Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer
The rapid increase in processor performance and the deployment of highly virtualized datacenters have placed increasing stress on storage, to the point that storage is often the bottleneck to greater application performance. Flash, with high performance, low latency and reduced power consumption, holds the key to accelerating application performance, but it has traditionally been difficult to deploy. LSI Chief Strategy Officer Greg Huff will talk about different ways to use flash to accelerate applications without disrupting existing infrastructure.
