Wright will join other flash industry experts in a session that will explain how to take full advantage of SSDs' high speeds and fast access times and how to choose the right interface for specific applications, as well as maximize bandwidth and lifetime. The session will feature the effects of virtualization, and provide attendees with advice on how to achieve the best ROI. Finally, participants will discuss the most common bottlenecks and errors designers face when using SSDs.
