“SAS vs. NVMe Interface Smackdown” Webcast

Date: Tuesday, August 11, 2020

Let’s get ready to rumble!

In one corner, we have Cameron Brett, president of the SCSI Trade Association and Director of Enterprise and Cloud Storage Marketing at KIOXIA America, representing Serial Attached SCSI (SAS). The 30-year market incumbent, SAS is the dominant storage interface used in enterprise servers and storage deployments in data centers.

In the other corner, we have Jonmichael Hands, NVM Express™ Marketing Workgroup co-chair and Sr. Strategic Planner and Product Manager at Intel representing the NVM Express interface. NVMe is a high-performance and latency-optimized protocol built from the ground up for non-volatile memories deployed on a PCI Express® bus. NVMe SSDs are the up-and-coming challenger for data center dominance.

Refereed by Don Jeanette, Vice President, TRENDFOCUS, this lively discussion will cover an overview of each interface and punch down into the benefits and features of each. Is there enough room in the data center for both? Or can there be only one?
