His keynote talk, given at 1:30 PM on Sunday, January 8, 2012 is titled:  “Fulfilling the Cloud’s Promise of Data Ubiquity.”  Kevin’s talk explores topics vital to the SV 2012 conference theme of “Heavy Storage for Thin Clients.”

Kevin’s abstract says “The Cloud is here, and is becoming an increasingly important part of the lives of consumers and businesses.  But is the Cloud living up to its true potential?  Critical issues such as higher bandwidth, tiny form factors, low cost per GB, minimal power consumption, and reliability must be addressed by the memory industry in order for the Cloud to deliver on its promise of true data ubiquity.  This keynote will highlight the trends in Cloud-based use scenarios from the first to the last node of the network, and underscore how Flash providers can enable the total Cloud promise through optimized data centers and high performance thin clients.”
