Storage has been one of the major forces behind the computer revolution in the last few decades, obeying Moore’s law and doubling in capacity every 18 months. But cheaper, larger and more ubiquitous storage presents new problems in architecture and organization in modern distributed environments.

The Silicom Ventures Storage Symposium will offer insight into these and other issues of storage systems. Leading industry experts will join forces with members of the financial community in an informed panel discussion and open debate on where the storage industry stands today and how it will impact future development of computer networks and its related business opportunities.
The event will draw an audience of approximately 200 business leaders, entrepreneurs and investors.
