SNIA NVM Programming Model Selected by Flash Memory Summit as a 2014 Best of Show Award Winner

Recognized as Most Innovative Flash Memory Enterprise Business Application

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/14 -- Flash Memory Summit 2014 -- The Flash Memory Summit has chosen the SNIA NVM Programming Model as a Best of Show award winner for Most Innovative Flash Memory Enterprise Business Application. The annual Best of Show awards are the premier opportunity for industry recognition of innovative products and solutions, and how they are being used in the marketplace.

The SNIA NVM Programming Model defines new software programming models for non-volatile memory (NVM) and will be a key contributor to an expected convergence, made possible by NVM, of system memory and storage into a single, unified "persistent memory" entity.

The technology that motivates this model includes SSDs as well as other NVM devices which can be addressed as memory. The NVM Programming Model defines software behavior for block-addressable NVM (SSDs) and byte-addressable NVM (certain NVDIMMs). The NVM Programming Model also describes extensions allowing software to utilize NVM, and enables designers to develop APIs that take advantage of NVM features and performance. Thirty-two companies have been working on the NVM Programming Model since 2012. These companies represent solid state storage industry-leading manufacturers, system software manufacturers, computer system OEMs, controller makers, and test labs.

"Flash memory technology is currently experiencing a progression of innovations that can make a real difference in solving storage solution challenges. The industry is seeing a proliferation of new Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) functionality and new NVM technologies," said Jay Kramer, Chairman of the Flash Memory Summit Awards Program and President of Network Storage Advisors Inc. "We are proud to select the SNIA NVM Programming Model for the Best of Show Award as it brings to the marketplace a new standard with a model that defines recommended behavior between various user spaces and operating system (OS) kernel components supporting NVM."

"It is a great honor for the NVM Programming Model Technical Working Group of SNIA to be recognized for their work," said Doug Voigt, Co-chair of the SNIA NVM Programming Technical Work Group from HP. "It is especially encouraging that the industry recognizes the importance of the changes taking place in the non-volatile memory field. This is a huge opportunity for vendor-neutral work in groups like the SNIA to impact technology adoption and market growth."

"We're thrilled with this recognition of the SNIA NVM Programming Model and the role of software in emerging NVM solutions. A goal for contributors to the programming model is industry alignment around NVM-related software behavior; in particular, interoperable approaches for application use of NVM features. Recognition from the Flash Memory Summit demonstrates industry support for this goal," said Paul von Behren of Intel, Co-chair of the SNIA NVM Programming Technical Work Group.

Winning products were judged by a panel of industry experts who evaluated each nomination according to the following criteria:

  • Distinctiveness of the application, technology, or product
  • Central use of flash memory as a solution or innovation
  • Technical and business significance to the general marketplace

In his session at Cloud Expo, Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, provideed economic scenarios that describe how the rapid adoption of software-defined everything including cloud services, SDDC and open networking will change GDP, industry growth, productivity and jobs. This session also included a drill down for several industries such as finance, social media, cloud service providers and pharmaceuticals.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
