Peter K. Hazen, Marketing Director, Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) Solutions Group at Intel will talk about Enabling Transformational Change in Clients and Datacenters with Solid State Drives.  Following is the abstract of his talk:  The explosion of mobile computing has created an insatiable demand for instant, affordable access to the world's information. Solid State Drive solutions are fueling the innovation and proliferation of mobile computing by enabling thinner, lighter and more responsive clients with extended battery life. Service providers and enterprises are responding to the increased demand for data by expanding and transforming their datacenters worldwide. The adoption of SSD solutions in datacenters is enabling transformational change through significant improvements in performance, power and cost. SSD solutions enable breakthrough advances in Big Data, Cloud Computing and High Performance Computing as well as a broad range of Enterprise IT applications. A new generation of SSDs are coming to market with new form factors, lower power, enterprise Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) features, higher and more consistent performance as well as improved Quality-of-Service (QoS) which are accelerating innovation in client and datacenter solutions.

Peter Hazen is the Marketing Director responsible for bringing Intel NAND components and solutions to the market including Intel client and datacenter Solid-State Drives (SSDs). He is responsible for Product and Technical Marketing, Applications Engineering, Customer Marketing and Marketing Communications within Intel's NVM Solutions Group. The team is focused on launching and ramping a series of new and exciting SSDs for multiple segments in the growing SSD market.

Kevin Conley, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Client Storage Solutions, SanDisk Corporation will talk about SSDs: Enabling the Next Wave of Growth in the PC Industry.  His talk abstract follows:  Solid-state drives (SSDs) are re-energizing the PC industry. By 2015, the average capacity of an SSD-based PC is predicted to almost double, reaching 269 GB according to Gartner.  The explosive growth in SSDs is being driven by the emergence of ultra-thin laptops and the promise of new, higher-performing desktops for consumers and businesses. This presentation will outline perspectives on these trends and will discuss a strategy for leveraging SSDs to enable the next wave of growth in the PC industry.
