Micron and WPGA's Inaugural SOLID SSD Data Storage Event in Chicago Was A Big Success

By WPG AmericasOctober 12, 2015

Last Wednesday, October 7th, Micron and WPG Americas kicked off our our first ever SOLID SSD (solid state drive) data storage event to eager attendees at the Hilton Garden Inn in Chicago, Ill.

Many interesting topics were covered, with discussions that included everything from maximizing workloads with SSDs and accelerating storage with Flash to 3D XPOINT technology and the use of SSDs in highly transactional database applications. "The networking was excellent and we had some great discussions around specific storage technology problems and how Micron SSD’s solved those problems," said Dana Slater, Micron Product Manager for WPGA. There are 2 more SOLID events coming up this week and there are still a few spots available for both gatherings.

 The next event is this Tuesday, October 13th, in Boston, MA at the Westford Regency Inn and Conference Center. The last of the Micron/WPG Americas SOLID Events will be this Thurday, October 15th in Jersey City, New Jersey at the Courtyard Marriott Jersey City Newport and is intended for NYC/tri-state area. And remember, registration was free for these events.
