That conference is the Flash Media Summit, an annual event held in August in Santa Clara, Calif. The FMS, as it is called, brings together a wide range of flash storage technologies from operating systems to SSDS and server-class memory to complete all-flash storage arrays from established and startup vendors.
CRN has brought together 22 products that were highlighted at this year's FMS, including the latest arrays, NVMe SSDs, and EDSFF (Enterprise and Datacenter SSD Form Factor) products. They are all united in three ways: they were introduced in the last four months, they were all flash-focused, and they were all at FMS. Many of these products were never seen before the conference.
