The Benefits of and Transition to NVMe: Micron NVMe SSD / DRAM Overview + Live Demo of ASR-3100PP with Micron’s New 9200 NVMe SSDs
As humanity’s trove of data continues to grow exponentially, there is an increasing need to analyze and act on it in timely manner. Advances in storage and memory driven by technology leaders like Micron are enabling organizations to unlock their information and create value for their end users and customers.
The age of rotational hard drives is spinning down, replaced by the speed, density and reliability of SSD products like Micron’s 9200 series of NVMe devices. Flash-based storage not only turbo-charges applications, it also lets enterprises get more usage per system, reducing idle computing capability and decreasing overall IT costs.

Case study on High Performance, Highly Available and High Density Infrastructure
When an organization needs high performance, high availability and increased density in their infrastructure, what’s the best option?
In this session, learn about Emergency Communications of Southern Oregon (ECSO) who found that not only were they able to improve their MS SQL Server performance (by 20x!), but they were also able to improve their availability and increase their infrastructure density (saving money) with DataCore’s Hyperconverged Virtual SAN.
