Two C-FAR professors gave keynote addresses at the Massive Storage Systems and Technology conference in Santa Clara in early June.

Prof. John Ousterhout (Stanford) discussed “RAMCloud and the Low-Latency Datacenter,” where he discussed his team’s RAMCloud project—a storage system that keeps all data in DRAM at all times in order to provide 100-1000x faster access than existing storage systems.

Prof. Steven Swanson (UC-San Diego) also gave his keynote, “Time to Rethink (Almost) Everything: Scalable Storage Systems for Fast Non-Volatile Memories.” Prof. Swanson’s talk surveys the research surrounding rethinking storage systems in the light of emerging technologies.Read more about Swanson's keynote.
