The Bleeding Edge of Memory and Compute: Micron @ SC17

By Jay Walstrum - 2017-11-13

SC17 will provide fresh solution ideas from Micron. It’s an exciting time in the industry for creative and collaborative memory developers and, teamed with the new leadership at Micron, this brings vibrant life to discussions and partnerships Micron will be talking about. Below are some highlights you will want to catch to stay ahead of the latest developments in memory and storage. Be sure to note these in your calendar.

Visit the Micron Booth

Talk with our memory experts in booth 1963 and check out the latest memory and storage solutions. Three key demos you don’t want to miss:

  • Deep Neural Networks complete with facial recognition training and inference operation. Micron Collaborates with Machine Learning experts to demonstrate solutions for deep Neural networks. These solutions are more efficient on power and break through the memory bandwidth wall.
  • Persistent Memory showcasing NVDIMMs in the latest Dell 14G Skylake platform.
  • Shared NMVe Storage a petabyte-scale unified pool of high-performance, low latency, NVMe flash storage distributed across multiple servers - yet it retains the speeds and latencies of directly-attached media.

And don’t miss these other chances to catch Micron at SC17: 

Memory Centric Architectures for Cloud and HPC

Hosted by Sudhakara Yalamanchili (Georgia Tech) & Peter Kogge (Uof Notre Dame); with Panelists: Steve Pawlowski (Micron); John Shalf (CTO of NERSC/DoE); Dave Mountain (LPS); Palo Faraboschi (HP Labs)
The goal of this BoF is to bring together application developers, system software developers, memory system designers, and system architects to create community that can identify major trends and technical challenges, and catalyze collaborative opportunities between industry, academia, and government to address them.
