April 25, 2017 — The 33rd International Conference on Massive Storage Systems and Technology (MSST 2017) will dedicate five days to computer-storage technology, including a day of tutorials, two days of invited papers, two days of peer-reviewed research papers, and a vendor exposition. The conference will be held on the beautiful campus of Santa Clara University, in the heart of Silicon Valley May 15-19, 2017.
Kimberly Keeton, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, will keynote:
Data growth and data analytics requirements are outpacing the compute and storage technologies that have provided the foundation of processor-driven architectures for the last five decades. This divergence requires a deep rethinking of how we build systems, and points towards a memory-driven architecture, where memory is the key resource and everything else, including processing, revolves around it.
Memory-driven computing (MDC) brings together byte-addressable persistent memory, a fast memory fabric, task-specific processing, and a new software stack to address these data growth and analysis challenges. At Hewlett Packard Labs, we are exploring MDC hardware and software design through The Machine. This talk will review the trends that motivate MDC, illustrate how MDC benefits applications, provide highlights from our Machine-related work in data management and programming models, and outline challenges that MDC presents for the storage community.
Themes for the conference this year include:
- Emerging Open Source Storage System Design for Hyperscale Computing
- Leveraging Compression, Encryption, and Erasure Coding Chip
- Hardware Support to Construct Large Scale Storage Systems
- The Limits of Open Source in Large-Scale Storage Systems Design
- Building Extreme-Scale SQL and NoSQL Processing Environments
- Storage Innovation in Large HPC Data Centers
- How Large HPC Data Centers Can Leverage Public Cloud for Computing and Storage
- Supporting Extreme-Scale Name Spaces with NAS Technology
- Storage System Designs Leveraging Hardware Support
- How Can Large Scale Storage Systems Support Containerization?
- Trends in Non-Volatile Media
