This week at Flash Memory Summit (FMS), Toshiba Memory America, Inc. (TMA), the US-based subsidiary of Toshiba Memory Corp., highlighted several new technologies, form factors and products that enable the digital transformation that is currently underway.
Toshiba Memory also gave the opening keynote presentation and demonstrate innovative technologies in several different applications. Demonstrations took place in Toshiba’s two-level booth (#307, Hall A) on the show floor at the Santa Clara Convention Center from August 6-8.
IT is in a state of transformation, as the ways people work, communicate and connect continue to evolve. Flash memory – invented by Toshiba in 1987 – has been a catalyst for change for more than 30 years, and it’s not done yet. Touching everything from mobile computing, data centers and automobiles to the edge and the cloud – Toshiba Memory’s solutions are critical to the success of emerging applications and allow existing technologies to reach their full potential.
Recent announcements see the company continuing to lead the industry forward, including the demonstration of a new Storage Class Memory solution, the debut of a new form factor specification for a removable PCIe1 NVMe2 (NVM Express) storage device, the introduction of enterprise and data center PCIe 4.0 SSDs, and a new open-source software solution that optimizes RocksDB for SSDs.
“Simply put – without flash memory, digital transformation would not be possible,” noted Scott Nelson, senior VP and GM of Toshiba Memory America Inc.’s Memory Business Unit. “History has proven we are committed to bringing solutions to the market that enable our customers to develop products that keep pace with the fast moving storage market. Our recent introduction of XL-FLASH, the highest performing NAND available, is further proof of this. Toshiba Memory has the innovative technologies, R&D capabilities and manufacturing necessary to support the challenges and opportunities that come with the evolution of data.”
