If you are attending the Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara on Tuesday and Wednesday please say hello. Tuesday morning I will be sprinting between my two concurrent sessions.

In Forum F1B: Laptop Design session I’ll be giving a 25 minute presentation titled “Can The Flash Consumer SSD Be Saved?” In “Flash in Enterprise Storage Systems” a panel will hold forth on the promise of enterprise/solid state disks.

For reasons regular readers will appreciate, the latter should be more interesting.

The StorageMojo take
The summit will also have vendors showing their wares. I’m hoping to see some creative work.

The first thought with new technologies is to replicate what we already have. The real benefits from flash will come as we rethink the old architectures.

Courteous comments and questions welcome, of course.
