SMR – The Next Opportunity in Storage - Jorge Campello, Global Director of Systems and Solutions, HGST

Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) is the next generation storage technology for continued improvement in HDD areal density, and offers new opportunities for storage solutions. In massive, scale-out cold storage applications such as active archive, social media and long-term data storage, SMR HDD-based solutions offer the highest density, lowest TCO and leading $/TB.  This speaking session will clearly articulate the difference in SMR drive architectures and performance characteristics, and will illustrate how the open source community has a distinct advantage in integrating a host-managed platform that leverages SMR HDDs.
