IEEE, Stanford, Riverbed and Xilinx invite you to an evening conversation about making sense of mountains of data.? Sir Edmund Hillary said, “It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves”.? Today, networking and storage technology presents us with incredible capabilities.? However, the data in isolation, like the mountain, doesn’t do much.? Its true value emerges in the context of planning, access, and distribution.? It’s been said that humans are creating an exabyte of new data every day.? Moving it, storing it, and making good use of it is becoming a challenge.? Tom Coughlin, Mark Day, and Gordon Brebner discuss their perspectives for handling the data explosion.
Our distinguished panelists for the event are:
– Dr. Tom Coughlin:? President, Coughlin Associates
– Dr. Mark Day:? Chief Scientist, Riverbed
– Dr. Gordon Brebner:? Distinguished Engineer, Xilinx
During the networking hour, enjoy hors d’ouevres, chat with professionals in the industry, and? discuss job opportunities. Registration is recommended.? Walk-ins welcome (space permitting).
