    Last month, I attended the Flash Memory Summit (FMS) in Santa Clara, California, a conference that focuses on the various flash technologies and their adoption in the data center. FMS 2018 reported over 6,000 registrations, making it one of the largest independent storage conferences. There were over 16 keynotes and many more educational sessions, as well as an exhibition hall with companies showing off their latest flash chips, devices, interconnects, and even complete storage arrays. Verizon, Toshiba, WDC/DCS, Micron, SK Hynix, Yangtze Memory, Intel, Solarflare, Xilinx, Marvell, ScaleFlux, Microsemi, Shannon Systems, NGD Systems, Smart IOPS, and Huawei Technologies provided keynotes. If you want a deep education in some of the latest flash technologies or even on how to develop your own flash controller, this is the conference for you—but it also has high-level sessions mixed into the educational offerings.
