McObject CEO Steve Graves Chosen as Flash Memory Summit Speaker

FEDERAL WAY, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/14 -- McObject® announced that Flash Memory Summit, the world's largest conference dedicated to flash memory and its applications, has chosen company co-founder and CEO Steve Graves to speak at two sessions of this year's event, to be held in Santa Clara, CA on August 5 - 7.

The presentations each focus on a different strategy for using NAND flash-based technology to enhance in-memory database system (IMDS) performance and durability. Both talks stem from McObject's benchmark testing of the IMDS capabilities of its eXtremeDB® Financial Edition database system, in partnership with leading flash technology vendors.

Graves will speak on "Using Memory-Tier NAND to Accelerate IMDS Transaction Logging" as part of a Persistent Memory Applications panel discussion at 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, August 7. His presentation includes data from McObject's tests of traditional ("on-disk") database management systems (DBMSs), and in-memory database systems using transaction logging, using storage devices including Fusion-io's NAND flash memory tier storage.

The second presentation, "Benchmark: In-Memory Database System Deployed on NVDIMM," is part of the event's Flash in the Memory Channel session at 2:40 p.m. on Thursday, August 7. It describes industry-first tests of an in-memory database system using non-volatile dual in-line memory module (NVDIMM) technology as main memory storage. McObject and NVDIMM vendor AgigA Tech (a Cypress Semiconductor subsidiary) collaborated on the benchmarking, which showed that an IMDS that is deployed on NVDIMM matches the speed of using conventional DRAM, while gaining data durability, or the ability to recover from system failure with no data loss.
