SAN JOSE, Calif. – August 5, 2019 – Viking Enterprise Solutions, a product division of Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), today announced that it will have a significant presence at the upcoming Flash Memory Summit, August 6-8 in Santa Clara, California. Thought leaders from the organization have been invited to lead three sessions on topics that cover optimizing HCI for NVMe-based flash storage platforms, leveraging distributed key-value stores for performance and scalability on flash media and winning marketing strategies for enterprise flash storage. In addition, experts from the organization will lead two “Chat with the Experts” sessions and a “Pitch Party” theater presentation on the topics of HCI and NVME-over-Fabric.

At booth #834, Viking Enterprise solutions will conduct two live demonstrations, including an HCI solution that dramatically improves performance and reduces latency.

Six Event Activities Led by Viking Enterprise Solutions Experts

Viking Enterprise Solutions leaders will lead three main sessions that include:

    • Optimizing Hyper-Converged Infrastructures for NVMe-Based Flash Storage, Hyperconverged Infrastructure Applications Track, HYPER-201B-1, August 7, 9:45 a.m. The optimal choice for hyper-converged infrastructure has changed as NVMe and NVMe-oF become the most common flash storage connections. The new generation of HCI software stacks has proven well-suited for this unprecedented scale, density, and diversity of workloads, putting pressure on resources and forcing infrastructure designers to consider new approaches which add to system cost and complexity. In this session, Richard Elling, principal architect at Viking Enterprise Solutions, will address optimizing HCI with NVMe for various application areas, such as analytics, AI/ML, IoT, database searches, transactions processing or video and image processing.
    • Leveraging Distributed Key-Value Stores for Performance and Scalability on Flash Media, Key Value Store and Linux Technology Software Track, SOFT-202-1, August 7, 3:20 p.m. Richard Elling, principal architect at Viking Enterprise Solutions, will evaluate the impact of three configurations using different types of flash media and persistent memory for the Key Value store on the transaction latency and analyze the resulting scale characteristics.
    • CMO Panel: Flash Will be Everywhere but the Customer Still Rules, Business/Marketing Track, 202-A-1, August 7, 3:20 p.m. Marketing enterprise flash storage is difficult due to the fast-changing and complex nature of the technology.
